Career[edit]

Angela White, which is her birth name,[2] began her career in the adult industry in 2003.[3] Her first scene was shot by Score just after she turned 18 years old.[3]

In 2007, White was named Score's Voluptuous Model of the Year.

White made her first boy/girl scene in 2011 for the DVD Angela White Finally Fucks.[3]

In November 2013, White launched her official website, angelawhite.com.[4] Later that month, White and Jessa Rhodes were named Official Trophy Girls for the 2014 XBIZ Awards.[5]

In October 2014, White signed a distribution deal with Girlfriends Films to release films. Her first film, Angela, featured her first anal, interracial anal, double penetration (DP), and all-anal threesome.[6] In the same month, Fleshlight, makers of a masturbation tool for men, named White their newest Fleshlight Girl.[7] She is the first Australian to be named a Fleshlight Girl.[8]

In September 2015, White was interviewed by XBIZ about the making of Angela 2, which featured her first all-girl threesome, blowbang, airtight and gangbang.[9]

In September 2016, in an interview with XBIZ, White said she had moved to the United States and signed with Spiegler Girls to shoot for companies like Brazzers, Naughty America, and Jules Jordan.[10]

XBIZ has called her "Australia's most well-known adult performer".[5]

In January 2018, White co-hosted the 35th annual AVN Awards Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, alongside comedian Aries Spears and webcam star Harli Lotts. At that same awards show, White was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame and named the 2018 AVN Female Performer of the Year.[11]

At the 36th Annual AVN Awards Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, White was named the 2019 AVN Female Performer of the Year, joining Tori Black as the only other performer to have been twice named the AVN Female Performer of the Year.

In January 2020, at the 37th Annual AVN Awards Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, White was named the AVN Female Performer of the Year for the third year in a row, becoming the only performer to have been named the AVN Female Performer of the Year three times. She also won the 2020 AVN Award for Best Leading Actress, joining Ashlyn Gere and Hillary Scott as the only other performers to win Female Performer of the Year and Best Leading Actress in the same year.

The Daily Beast has called her "The Meryl Streep of Porn."[12]

Webcam model[edit]

White is also recognised for her regular work as a webcam model.[13]

In an interview with AVN in January 2014, White discussed how she enjoyed connecting with fans through webcam and stated she didn't see a time when she would stop doing it. She said she felt the adult industry would move more toward live shows to get around the issues associated with piracy.[3]

Appearances in other media[edit]

In 2007, White made her television debut on the Australian comedy series Pizza.[14]

In September 2013, White appeared on the SBS 2 Australian news program The Feed.[15]

In November 2013, White appeared in the ABC 2 documentary The Vagina Diaries.[16]

In May 2015, White was the subject of the PLGRM short documentary The Porn Identity.[17]

In 2019, a clip of hers was featured in the pilot of the HBO comedy miniseries Mrs. Fletcher.

Education and academic work[edit]

In 2007, White enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts program at the University of Melbourne. She graduated with first-class honours in gender studies in 2010.[18] For her honours thesis, she conducted qualitative research into female experiences in the Australian pornography industry.[19]

In August 2017, the findings of White's honours thesis were published as a chapter entitled "The Porn Performer" in The Routledge Companion to Media, Sex and Sexuality.[20][21]

White has said she would like to go back to university to complete her PhD, stating she'd like to expand on her studies to include a broader cross section of performers.[19]

Politics[edit]

In 2010, White ran as a political candidate for the Australian Sex Party in the Victorian state election,[18] where she fought for the rights of sex workers.[22] She gained exposure during the election when she sent copies of her DVDs to Attorney General Rob Hulls in her bid to reduce regulations for X-rated films.[23]

In 2013, White and fellow Australian Sex Party candidate Zahra Stardust became the first political candidates to film a pornographic scene together.[24]
