Dora Venter is the pseudonym of the Hungarian pornographic film actress Melinda Gál.[1]

She was born October 1, 1976 near Salgótarján (Hungary). She moved to Budapest, and studied to be a nurse, receiving her CCRN (critical care registered nurse) certificate in 1998. She auditioned for pornography in late April 1999, and shot her first films several weeks afterwards, her second at the Cannes Hot D'Or. This was initially intended to supplement her low pay as a nurse, but ended up being a full time career for years.[2]

Early in her career, she starred in Swedish movies for director Mike Beck, under the stage name Claudia Wennström. She also appeared in Italian, German, French, and Hungarian films. From 2001 through 2004, she worked for Catalan director Conrad Son, in more artistic pornographic roles. Much of her work includes anal sex.

She was nominated for the Barcelona Erotic Film Festival 2003 Best Actress "Ninfa" prize at the for her role in Laura está sola (Laura is Alone),[3] and won the 2004 prize for Best Supporting Actress for her role in La Memoria de los peces (The Memory of Fish), both for Conrad Son Company.[4]

She returned to nursing in September 2003, while continuing to make occasional films. She has been cited as saying that her friends know of her film work, while most of her patients do not, due to the limited penetration of international pornography in Hungary.[1]
