Linzi Drew was born on 11 May 1958 in Bristol, Gloucestershire, England. During a varied career in the UK sex industry Drew worked as a Page 3 girl, stripper, glamour model and porn actress and was at one time the editor of the British edition of Penthouse magazine. In the 1980s, she appeared nude each month in the softcore magazine Club International.
In the 1990s she was arrested for illegally distributing pornography, something which she and then-boyfriend, Simon Honey aka Ben Dover, discussed in a BBC Open Space documentary entitled "More Sex Please, We're British" (1993). This documentary, which argues for liberalisation of censorship laws, was made by Isobel Koprowski, the former editor of Forum magazine.
Drew retired from the porn industry at the age of 35. She later had a son, Tyger Drew-Honey, who became known for playing Jake in the BBC television sitcom Outnumbered. She and Dover subsequently split up.
Drew has also had minor roles in a handful of mainstream films, including An American Werewolf in London (1981) and The Rainbow Thief (1990), and a number of Ken Russell films, including Salome's Last Dance (1988), The Lair of the White Worm (1988) and the Nessun dorma segment of the multi-director film, Aria (1987).
In 1993, she published her autobiography, Try Everything Once Except Incest and Morris Dancing: The Intimate Autobiography of a Dangerous Lady. The book chronicles her time as a groupie and latterly her career as a glamour model and porn star.
