Gianna Michaels (born Terah Wicker[1] on June 6, 1983) is an American pornographic actress.[2]

Early life and career

Michaels was born in Seattle, Washington.[1] Her first job was at a hamburger restaurant in Seattle called Dick's Drive-In.[5] After being approached about modelling, she eventually tried it, figuring that if she did not like it, she could stop.[5] Her modelling eventually led to nude photo shoots and then pornography.[5] She has also filmed under the aliases "Becky" and "Gianna Rossi".[2]

Michaels performed in her first anal scene in Elegant Angel's Big Wet Asses 15, which was released on June 30, 2009.[2][6][3] She has made cameos in the 2010 horror film Piranha 3D, Look: The Series, and the Do Something video by Dyme Def.[7]
