Tina Tyler (born July 16, 1965[1] on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada) is the stage name of a former Canadian pornographic actress and director.

Career[edit]

Tyler started working as a feature dancer for eight years before entering the adult film industry.[3] She filmed her first scene in September 1992 with Sean Michaels and Jake Steed.[1] She created her stage name by combining the first name of actress Tina Louise and the last name of Aerosmith's lead singer Steven Tyler.[3]

In 2009 Tyler started appearing again as a performer for limited number of scenes that she directed.[4] Tyler said of the scenes, "There's a rush knowing that you are going to be everyone's object of desire and that people you've never met are going to be aroused by what you do." "It's a very powerful feeling, and it's something I'm looking forward to regaining during my brief stint back on camera."

Over her career Tyler has worked for a number of production studios that include Adam & Eve, Legend Video, Leisure Time Entertainment, Sin City, VCA Pictures, Vivid Entertainment, and Wicked Pictures.[2]

Appearances[edit]

Besides appearing in adult films, Tyler has also appeared on the TV shows 21 Jump Street, Booker and Wiseguy and was an extra in the movie Star 80.

Personal life[edit]

Tyler grew up with her mother's family in Germany for the first three years of her life. She has said she was "painfully shy" and a bookworm in her childhood. She worked as a shoe salesperson and a receptionist at a modelling agency before becoming a stripper at age 19.

She was previously married from 1984 to 1985 and later married fellow porn star Tony Tedeschi from 1993 to 1994.[1] She remarried in October 1999.[10]

Tyler was diagnosed with skin and breast cancer in the late 2000s, and she later reflected upon her experiences via a blog.[11] In 2009, after a brief return to the porn industry,[12] Tyler returned to her native Canada to undergo treatments for the cancer. "The prognosis is excellent," she said.[13]
