CHRISTY CANYON (1980’s)

Canyon has performed in over 100 adult films and effectively retired from performing in front of the camera three times, as she shot films from September 1984 to March 1985; June 1989 to December 1992; and 1995 to 1997 (as an exclusive/contract performer for Vivid).

In her autobiography, Canyon stated that porn actor Greg Rome approached her while she was waiting for a ride in Hollywood, and told her that she would be a terrific figure model. He gave her the business card of adult magazine and film recruiter/agent Jim South, of World Modeling Agency. After visiting South’s office she posed for men’s magazines and began her video career shortly thereafter. She has stated that her first on-screen performance was with Ronald “Ron” Jeremy (Hyatt) in 1984’s “Swedish Erotica 57,” and that Jeremy soon became a close friend in the business.
