Career[edit]

Karter began erotic dancing while in Missouri and was named the state's Déjà Vu Showgirl of the Year in 2007.[4] She later moved to California to pursue an acting and singing career. Karter fell out with her manager when he discovered she had been working as an exotic dancer.[2] While continuing to dance in California, she eventually moved into modeling and, after signing with the agency LA Direct Models, posed for shoots with erotic photographer Holly Randall.[2]

Karter entered the adult film industry in September 2008,[5] starting with an Internet boy-girl scene for the production company Naughty America.[2] In regard to her stage name, Karter has stated that Kagney was her real first name (her father named her after James Cagney) and Linn was her real middle name.[citation needed] She chose Karter as her surname because it "just fit perfectly."[3] She was chosen as the Penthouse Pet of the Month for June 2009,[2] and appeared on the covers of Hustler in April 2009 and Adult Video News in June 2009.[2][5][6]

She also was featured on the cover of Holly Randall's photo book Erotic Dream Girls, which was published in October 2009.[7] In January 2010, she signed an exclusive performing contract with the production company Zero Tolerance Entertainment.[8]
