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

Porn and acting career[edit]

Devon was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania. She began her career at age 19 as 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. 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 she wanted to be a star. She also appeared in a photo spread for Stuff, a men's magazine. 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]

On July 31, 2005 she appeared in the HBO series, Entourage, appearing as herself in Season 2, Episode 9's "I Love You Too." The same year, she co-starred in the porn film Pirates. Devon has also appeared on MTV's Pimp My Ride.

Devon left Digital Playground in September 2005. By January 2006, she signed with a new company, Ecstasy Mobile.[6] In March 2006, she signed with Black Kat Productions, which never produced any films with Devon.[7] Devon then formed her own production company.[8] 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.[9] Devon ended her relationship with the company after making claims about inappropriate behavior from one of the actors in the film.[10]

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

Personal[edit]

In 2005, she dated Danny Ting, a Chinese-American adult movie rental entrepreneur.[12]
