Devon (born March 28, 1977) is an American pornographic actress.

Early life[edit]

Devon was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania.[citation needed] At age 19, she was a stripper at Al's Diamond Cabaret in Reading, Pennsylvania.[1] As a young girl, her dream was to become a gymnast. However, due to her height, she was not able to participate at a competitive level, so she was forced to look to other careers.

Career[edit]

Her first foray into the adult film industry came in 1998, when she appeared in the film New Breed.[2] It was immediately after making this movie that she went to the Vivid Entertainment offices and told them that she wanted to be a star.[citation needed] She also appeared in a photo spread for Stuff, a men's magazine.[citation needed] She was the Penthouse Pet of the month in January 2001.

After her Vivid contract, Devon signed with Digital Playground.[3] In 2004, Devon appeared in the first WMV-HD DVD porn movie ever made, Island Fever 3, filmed on Tahiti and Bora Bora.[4] Devon has performed with over thirty-five male stars, and her first anal scene was in 2005's Intoxicated.[5]

Devon appeared, alongside fellow Digital Playground contract performers Jesse Jane and Teagan Presley, in an episode titled "I Love You Too" from the HBO series Entourage, which aired on July 31, 2005.[6] That same year, she co-starred in the adult film Pirates. Devon has also appeared on MTV's Pimp My Ride.[citation needed]

Devon left Digital Playground in September 2005. By January 2006, she signed with a new company, Ecstasy Mobile.[7] In March 2006, she signed with Black Kat Productions, which never produced any films with Devon.[8] Devon then formed her own production company.[9] In October 2006, she signed a contract with Shane's World to appear in films and direct film scenes for the company.[2] She made her directorial debut for Shane's World in April 2007 with the title Devon Does Baja.[10]

In 2010, Devon was inducted into the Adult Video News Hall of Fame.[11]
