Blythe was originally offered the part of Lynn, but demanded that she try out for Ruby instead.

Her last acting credit to date was the early 90s action item "Soldier's Fortune." Janus was interviewed in the nifty documentary "Invasion of the Scream Queens." More recently the still gorgeous and vivacious Blythe happily reminisced about her most famous role in the immensely informative and entertaining retrospective DVD documentary "Looking Back at 'The Hills Have Eyes' ."
