Charmane Star (born May 5, 1979) is a Filipino pornographic actress who has appeared in over 300 films since 1998.[1] She has also performed as a feature dancer[3][5][6] and an automobile model.[7]

Early life[edit]

Star came to the USA with her parents when she was less than two years-old. Although her current home is considered to be California, her native soil is the Philippines.[2] Her sister, Leah Santiago, was briefly in the adult film industry as well.[8]

Career[edit]

She has appeared in both Hustler and Club magazines[9] as well as in various forms of Penthouse,[10][11] including in The Girls of Penthouse in May/June 2014.[12]

In 2011, Complex magazine ranked her at #8 in their list of “The Top 50 Hottest Asian Porn Stars of All Time.”[3]

Mainstream appearances[edit]

Star and several other adult film actresses appear in the 2009 blaxploitation film Black Dynamite as one of Black Dynamite's "Ladies of Leisure".[3][13] In a 2008 interview, Black Dynamite director Scott Sanders stated that these adult film actresses were cast in the film because they had not undergone any plastic surgery or enhancements and therefore fit into the 1970s theme.[5][14]

She starred in the video for the 2009 song "That's How I Go" by Baby Bash featuring Lil Jon and Mario.[5]

Star has appeared on Night Calls in 2005 & 2006,[15] Zane's Sex Chronicles in 2010,[16] Co-Ed Confidential in 2009-10,[17] and in the 2014 horror movie Face of Evil.[18]

Star has also appeared on her own dining show, Eating Out With Charmane.[19]

In January 2015, Star stated on her Instagram account that she now only made mainstream films.[20]
