Where Are They Now - Friday, June 30, 2017
I've been watching some rather forgettable '80s horror flicks as of late. The latest one was a dub entitled 'House II: The Second Story' which starred Lar Park-Lincoln which some prime-time soap fans and Friday the 13th fans may recall. She was Linda Fairgate on Knots Landing and the telekinetic psychic Tina Shepard in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood.
What's she been doing these days? Let's see what she's been doing.

CLAIM TO FAME:
Lar Park Lincoln is an American actress. She's best known for appearing on Knots Landing for several seasons as "Linda Fairgate", the daughter-in-law to "Karen Fairgate" (played by series star Michele Lee), and in the 1988 horror film Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood as Tina Shepard.
Lincoln was married to Michael Martin Lincoln on December 5, 1981 and remained married until his death on December 4, 1995. She has two children and lives near Dallas, Texas.

Lar decided to return to her native state of Texas to raise her children. Since that move, she rapidly became Texas' most elite career coach for actors, models, pageantry.
With a script from her then-17 year-old, film-student nephew Austin, Lar executive produced "Static," a film about teen heroin abuse.
She co-directed and competed in the Dallas twenty-four hour film race with a serious piece about racial discrimination, "Black and White."
Her book, "Get Started Not Scammed, from Finance to Fame" was published in 2008.
