Felissa Rose (born Felissa Rose Esposito; May 23, 1969) is an American actress and producer. She made her film debut as Angela Baker in Robert Kiltzik's cult film Sleepaway Camp (1983), a role reprised in the 2008 sequel Return to Sleepaway Camp. She has over 90 film credits in total over the span of her film career. A few major credits include The Perfect House (2012), Silent Night, Zombie Night (2009), Camp Dread (2014), Death House (2018), and Victor Crowley (2018). In 2016, she produced the music videos for the metal band Slayer.
After appearing in Sleepaway Camp, she made some more sporadic appearances in a few television shows, and also made an appearance in the 1993 film The Night We Never Met, before quitting acting to attend school at New York University (NYU) in the Tisch School of the Arts. In 1998, she returned to acting when she appeared in an episode of the television series Prey. She was later tracked down in 1999 by Jeff Hayes who runs The Official Sleepaway Camp Website: www.sleepawaycampmovies.com through a letter he sent her in the mail asking her to do an interview for the website and gauge her interest in doing a new Sleepaway Camp sequel. Shortly thereafter, Hayes met with Rose in New York and the duo began her resurrection through the website and followed things up with Return To Sleepaway Camp. She has since returned to cinema and has appeared in such films as Chris Watson's Zombiegeddon (2003), Andreas Schnaas' Nikos (2003), and Steve Taylor's Sludge (2005). She has also appeared in two films by New Jersey filmmaker Dante Tomaselli: Horror (2002) and Satan's Playground (2005). In addition Felissa co-hosted the 2005 Village Halloween Parade in New York City with fellow scream queens Debbie Rochon and Raine Brown. She also had a cameo role in the sequel to the original Sleepaway Camp titled Return to Sleepaway Camp. In the sequel, she reprises the role of Angela Baker. The movie had a straight to DVD release on November 4, 2008. She also appears in Hotdog Casserole, written and directed by Chris Raab, as the mother in a dysfunctional family. Rose starred in a role as Mother in the segment "Dinner Guest" in the anthology horror film, The Perfect House. She also portrayed forensic pathologist Amy Short in the Francis Xavier thriller Poe. In 2016, Felissa starred in the paranormal horror film Family Possessions, written and directed by Tommy Faircloth. The film also starred Mark Patton. In May 2017, she helped produce and acted in the horror film, Death House. Rose recently acted in Adam Green’s Victor Crowley.
Rose lives in California with her husband, former CKY singer/guitarist Deron Miller, and their two daughters, Bianca Rose (born June 8, 2005) and Lola Marue (born March 4, 2007) and son, Thomas Carver (born August 29, 2009). Rose and Miller were co-stars in Dave Campfield's 2008 horror comedy Caesar and Otto's Summer Camp Massacre.
