Linda Wong (September 13, 1951 – December 7, 1987) was an American pornographic actress[1] and one of the first Asians to become a star in the adult film industry.[2] In 1999, she was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame.[3] She was Japanese by ethnicity.[4]

Career[edit]

Wong, a former homecoming queen,[5] first broke into the adult film business in 1976 with Oriental Babysitter and The Jade Pussycat, in which she co-starred with Georgina Spelvin and John Holmes. According to Playboy's October 1977 pictorial "Ladies of Joy" and Playboy's 1980 Girls of Playboy 4, she worked as a legal prostitute in Las Vegas[6] for a short time under the name "Linda Ching".

In 1981, she decided to retire.[6] She returned four years later[6] to star in The Erotic World of Linda Wong. She was planning yet another comeback in 1987 when she died of a drug overdose.[5][6]

In 2011, Complex magazine ranked her at #25 in their list of "The Top 50 Hottest Asian Porn Stars of All Time."[5]
