For over 30 years, Kevin Yagher has established himself as an award winning prosthetic and special make up effects creator with credits in film, TV and commercials. From the iconic Freddy Krueger to the terrifying Chucky, Kevin has left his mark with exciting and memorable characters. Having worked for directors as varied as Ang Lee, Tim Burton and John Woo, Yagher knows how to distill the story’s essence into a character design that then comes to life via actors or animatronics. Recently, Kevin completed a 12-season run on Bones in which he created the scarred facial make up for the serial killer, Christopher Pelant, as well as various decomposing victims. Based in Los Angeles, with a full workshop, Kevin is available for work worldwide.
