Adult film legend Christy Canyon performed in more than 100 adult films and has appeared in photo spreads for Penthouse, Swank and other men’s magazines.

According to Canyon’s autobiography, the adult actress got her start when porn actor Greg Rome approached her while she was waiting for a ride in Hollywood, telling her that she would be a terrific figure model. Rome handed her the business card of adult magazine, film recruiter and agent Jim South, of World Modeling Agency. After visiting South’s office, Christy Canyon posed for men’s magazines, beginning her video career soon after. Her first on-screen performance was with fellow adult movie legend Ron Jeremy in 1984’s Swedish Erotica 57.

Canyon has won several “best female performance” awards and is a member of both the XRCO and AVN Halls of Fame.
