Meghan Elizabeth Wren (September 19, 1984 – April 2, 2016),[3][4] known professionally as Amber Rayne, was an American pornographic actress. She died in April 2016.

Biography[edit]

Rayne was born in Detroit and raised in Northern California.[5] She was of mixed Italian, Scottish and Native American descent.[2][6] She attended California State University, Los Angeles.[7] She worked as an extra in mainstream films and television shows prior to her adult film career.[7]

Rayne entered the adult film industry in 2005.[1] Early in her porn career she resided in Santa Monica, California.[7] In April 2015 she announced her official retirement from adult films.[8]

She came out of retirement to shoot her final adult film, Wanted, later that year.[9] She had already promised the film's director, Stormy Daniels, that she would be part of the film six years prior to shooting it.[8] Besides performing, she had also worked in the adult-film industry as a director, producer, and editor.[8]

Rayne was a BDSM lifestyler both on-screen and in her personal life.[10] She owned a horse farm and was a riding instructor.[8] She had battled both non-Hodgkin lymphoma and uterine cancer.[1]

Death[edit]

Rayne collapsed and died at her home in Los Angeles, California on April 2, 2016. In late June 2016, the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner's office announced that her death was caused by an accidental drug overdose through the consumption of a combination of cocaine and alcohol.[4]
