English actor Jason Isaacs, who stars in the NBC miniseries Rosemary’s Baby, talked about his history with horror movies and his time as a summer camp counselor in a recent interview.

In the interview with Daily Actor, Isaacs reveals that he and a friend once sneaked out of the camp where he was working as a counselor to see Friday the 13th III in 3D.
