Biography

No matter what path actress Traci Lords attempted when her career finally came to an end, she would for better or for worse be remembered for being one of the most famous and successful - not to mention underage - adult film stars in history, having done roughly 100 XXX-rated movies while under the age of 18. Since that unfortunate time, when the scandal of her being too young for porn rocked the industry to its core, Lords was one of the few porn stars to legitimately go mainstream, appearing in several television series, low-budget movies and the occasional studio film, including the Wesley Snipes vampire vehicle, "Blade" (1998). Not content to stick with features, Lords broke off into other avenues - music, television, even video games - making sure that despite her sordid past, perhaps someday she would be associated with something more respectable.

Bonus Trivia

.

"I hate the phrase former porn queen. That part of my life was a long time ago. Think of something else to call me...I'm successful in spite of my past, not because of it." --Traci Lords to Entertainment Weekly, January 27, 1995.
