Lane was born in Schenectady, New York,[3] and is of Polish and Italian descent.[2] She worked as a bartender at a club called The Elbo Room on Ft. Lauderdale Beach.[4] She also worked at a sex shop[5] and as a stripper in local Florida strip clubs.[citation needed]

Lane started in the pornographic film industry in 2004[2] after being scouted in Florida by Peter North, and she then flew out to California and signed with the then-new agency LA Direct Models.[3] After signing with LA Direct Models, Lane's first scene in a pornographic film was with Ben English and Marco[4] in 2004. She has since gone on to appear in over 600 films.[2] In May 2007, Lane signed a two-year contract with Sin City for both acting and directing.[5] In 2006, Lane was a finalist on the second season of Playboy TV reality show Jenna's American Sex Star,[6] but she lost the prize in the final round.[7] She was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2017.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Lane is a personal friend of Jennifer Ketcham and features in her 2012 memoir I Am Jennie. Ketcham stated that Lane used the money she made in the industry to provide for her sister, extended family, and self and described her as "one of the few responsible girls in the biz".[8]

In February 2015, Lane was arrested and removed from a Delta Airlines flight for allegedly attacking members of the flight crew and other passengers.[1][9] She was later sued by a flight attendant for injuries from that incident.[10]
