Betsey Johnson

Powered by imdb

Kaitan was born on July 19, 1960 in Hungary. She was brought to New York City by her mother at age 8.Kaitan moved to Manhattan at age 18 in order to fulfill her lifelong ambition of being an actress in motion pictures. She studied her craft at the New York Academy of Theatrical Arts and was a member of the repertory company the American Theatre of Arts for several years (Kaitan acted in works by Shakespeare as well as contemporary dramas). In addition, Kaitan kept herself afloat by doing modeling work for the Bonnie Kay Agency in New York City.She made her film debut in the raucous comedy "Waitress!" and got her SAG card by doing a one line bit part as a German girl in Woody Allen's "Zelig." Elizabeth moved to Los Angeles, California in 1984. She alternated between lead and supporting roles in a bunch of entertainingly trashy low-budget exploitation features in the horror, action, comedy and science fiction genres. Kaitan appeared as Candy in the "Vice Academy" film series. Her other memorable parts include Jennifer Statson in "Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2," Daria in "Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity," one of the titular airheads in "Assault of the Killer Bimbos," Julie Johnson in "Necromancer," Robin in "Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood," and Gretchen Hope in "Roller Blade Warriors: Taken by Force." Kaitan was particularly impressive in a dual starring role as both frustrated unhappy housewife Beth and more uninhibited fantasy lover Liza in the steamy "Night Club." Moreover, she occasionally popped up in minor parts in such mainstream films as "The Lonely Guy," "Twins," and "Spy Hard." Alas, she voluntarily quit acting in the late 90's and married a Los Angeles sheriff's deputy and now works as a secretary for controversial conservative political activist named David Horowitz.  See full bio on IMDb »
