WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
The legendary Doug Bradley, who donned the pins and makeup of Pinhead for eight of the nine 'Hellraiser' films, has become a cult icon in the genre. Bradley was originally going to take the role of one of the movers in the first 'Hellraiser' film, but opted for the Lead Cenobite instead, and the rest, they say, is history. He is very close friends with Clive Barker, and the two have worked together on many projects over the years, including 'Night Breed' (1990), 'Salome & The Forbidden' (1998), and founding the 'Dog Company' progressive theatre group in London. Bradley is one of only five actors to play the same horror character on at least six consecutive occasions, joining Sir Christopher Lee (Count Dracula), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), Warwick Davis (Leprechaun), Brad Dourif (Chucky) and Tobin Bell (Jigsaw). His most recent genre fare includes 'Pumpkinhead: Ashes To Ashes' (2006), 'Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines' (2012), 'Shame The Devil' (2013), and 'Death House' (2014). In addition to his on-screen work, Doug has performed narrations on several songs by English extreme metal band, Cradle of Filth, as well as contributing guest vocals to their 2008 album 'Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder', on all songs except 'Tragic Kingdom'. Forever a student of the acting craft, Doug is also the author of the book 'Sacred Masks: Behind The Mask Of The Horror Actor', which explores the history of masks in society and their applications in horror films. A regular on the convention circuit, Bradley is rumored to be working with Clive Barker on a re-make of the original 'Hellraiser' film. He lives in London with his wife Lynne, two children, and a cat.
Kari Wuhrer, who took on the role of investigative reporter Amy Klein in 'Deader', got her first television break on MTV's 'Remote Control' in 1987. She was featured as a regular cast member of the television series 'Swamp Thing' from 1991 to 1992, and also worked as a VJ on MTV during that time. Movies to her credit include 'The Adventures Of Ford Fairlane' (1990), 'Beastmaster 2: Through The Portal Of Time' (1991), 'Thinner' (1996), and 'Anaconda' (1997). In the mid-1990s, it was rumored Wuhrer had a difficult time obtaining serious film roles due to her breast implants, so she had them removed. In 1999, Kari signed a record deal with producer Rick Rubin, and her debut album, 'Shiny', was released later in the same year. Kari was voted #36 in Maxim magazine's 50 Sexiest Women Countdown, and went on to pose nude in Playboy magazine in August of 2000. In addition, Wuhrer is also known by gamers for her role as Tanya in the video game 'Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2' (2000) and its subsequent expansion pack, 'Yuri's Revenge' (2001). Most recently, Kari guest starred on television shows like 'CSI: Miami' (2008) and 'Leverage' (2010), and was featured in the cult-hit sequel 'Sharknado 2: The Second One' (2014).
Actor Paul Rhys (Winter from 'Deader'), has won several film, television and stage awards. Rhys is known to commit so fully to stage roles that on two occasions it has caused him to be taken to hospital, once with pneumonia and the other with mental exhaustion. In 2000, he performed in the title role of Hamlet at the Young Vic and later in Tokyo and Osaka. He also played Angelo in 'Measure For Measure' for which he won the Critics' Circle Theatre Award; Houseman in 'The Invention Of Love And Edgar In King Lear', for which he was nominated for an Olivier Award; and Edmund in 'Long Day's Journey Into Night'. Rhys also played the title role in Howard Brenton's play 'Paul' at the National Theatre, but was unable to continue as he had lost a considerable amount of weight from overwork and needed to rest. Films to his credit include 'Lionheart' (1987), 'Chaplin' (1992), and 'From Hell' (2001). Running parallel to Rhys's film and stage work has been a diverse and notable television career, working in leading roles, such as 'Tumbledown', 'A Dance To The Music Of Time', 'The Heroes', 'Gallowglass' and 'Anna Karenina'. In 1995, he portrayed Simon Templar ("The Saint") for a series of three radio plays for BBC Radio 4.

Among the films featuring Simon are 'The Cave' (2005), 'City Of Ember' (2008), 'Captain America: The First Avenger' (2011), and 'Winter' (2013). In addition to his film work, Kunz has also worked extensively on television, appearing in series like 'Highlander' (2006), 'Coronation Street' (2007), 'Silent Witness' (2011), and 'Endeavour' (2014).

Marc Warren, who took on the role of Joey in 'Deader', had his first major film breakthrough with the 1992 BBC film 'An Ungentlemanly Act', in which he played Sir Rex Hunt's son, Tony. He is probably best known for his role as Danny Blue in the BBC TV series from 2004-2007, a role he reprised in the 2012 series finale. On the big screen, Marc has appeared in over 20 features, including 'Free Spirits' (2000), 'The Principles Of Lust' (2003), 'Color Me Kubrick' (2006), and most recently, 'Wild Bill' (2012) as a drunk dad. On the small screen, Warren has appeared in many British and American productions, most notably 'Highlander' (1997), 'Band Of Brothers' (2001), 'Doctor Who' (2006), and 'The Good Wife' (2012).
