Leonie Saint (born 23 April 1986), also known with the stage names Leonie Luder or simply Leonie, is a German actress, TV-presenter and former pornographic actress.

Life and career[edit]

Born in Herne, North Rhine-Westphalia,[1][2] Leonie entered the adult industry in September 2005, at 19 years-old.[3] In 2006, she became an exclusive actress for the company Videorama, for which she made her own series called Leonie.[3] That same year, Leonie won the eLine Award in the category "Best Newcomer Germany"[4] and, in 2007, in the category "Best Actress Germany".[3][2][5][6]

In January 2008, Saint announced her retirement from the adult industry.[2][3][9] In a 2011 interview, she said that she was disillusioned with the porn industry, that she would not do it again, and that she believed to have been deliberately infected with chlamydia by a jealous colleague.[3][10]
