Gloria Charles starred mostly in television series such as vinrar “a-Team”, for example, but in 1982 he made his debut on the big screen in the slasher “Friday the 13th, Part 3”, thus becoming a part of this long iconic franchise.
Remember, that small but lively gang of bikers, which grappled the guys from “camp Crystal lake” in the city shop? Gloria Charles played their ringleader named Fox (Fox) and played as necessary. It turned out overdone, but memorable aggressive way. After a confrontation in the store, the bikers go to the camp to get revenge, but instead meet Jason Voorhees, well, then you know.
As it turned out, Gloria is no longer with us. She died in December 2016, after a long illness, but in a Network about it it became known only now. The unfortunate news was announced via Twitter the actor Larry Zerner, who also starred in the third “Friday.” Shelly, curly-haired fat man, a lover of practical jokes, that’s it. Actually, he also participated in the same scene in the shop.
I just learned that Gloria Charles (Fox in F13-3D) passed away in December. She had a great spirit and I’m so sorry to hear this. RIP.

After “Friday the 13th” Gloria played in the wonderful Comedy “Brewster’s Millions” and “European vacation”, in parallel to continuing the work in the series. Later she participated in the creation of two documentary films “His name was Jason: 30 years of Friday the 13th” and “Crystal lake Memories: the Complete history of Friday the 13th”. For horror fans she will always be a part of it, so let’s say Gloria, thank you.
In addition, you can see here is a wonderful video made by her fans. It contains photographs of Gloria Charles, and includes excerpts from “Brewster’s Million”, where she starred.
