Judith M. Aronson (born June 7, 1964) is an American actress who has starred in many films and a television show. She played Sara Duncan on the short-lived series Pursuit of Happiness from 1987 to 1988.
Aronson was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1964. Her first film role was in the 1984 horror film Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter as Samantha. In 1985, she starred in the hit comedy movie Weird Science as Hilly and in the action movie American Ninja. Her most recent movie is in the 2005 film Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Aronson has also made many guest appearances on television shows, including Sledge Hammer!, The Powers of Matthew Star, Simon & Simon, Midnight Caller, Full House, Beverly Hills, 90210, Las Vegas, and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
The death of her character in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter was filmed on a cold December night. It was so cold out in the middle of the lake that the nude Aronson started crying. Ironically, Judie's savior was Jason Voorhees himself—or rather, the stuntman who played him, Ted White. Outraged, White demanded that director Joseph Zito let the actress get warm or he'd quit; Zito, not having the time or money to find another stuntman big enough to play Jason, agreed. Still, Judie developed hypothermia filming the scene.
