Sophie: Hi It’s good to hear your voice.
Xcitement: I was just going to say the same thing. You and I talk on twitter all the time, so I mentioned I was going to interview you and got lots of questions from our followers. I am going to mix them in with the stuff I wrote down to talk about. I noticed that a lot of the guys asking questions were from the UK. Did you do porn over there?
S: I did two movies in England. I actually shot one with Kieran Lee. And then we came here and shot together and I said ah, I remember you.
X: How is it different shooting porn in England?
S: It’s not as much fun. When I shot there the make-up artists were terrible. It was in a very small room. They had an audience.
X: An audience?
S: Yeah. It was so weird. And the pay is much less.
X: I wonder if the audience had to pay admission.
S: That’s what I was thinking. That would be a good way to pay the talent, you charge everybody to watch. It was actually my first scene so I didn’t know any better. But I thought it was kind of funny.
X: So let’s start at the beginning. You were born in Wales.
S: Yes. I went to a Welsh school and then we moved to England for a few years, and then we moved back to Wales for me to finish high school.
X: Do you speak Welsh?
S: I can count to ten. But that’s about it.
X: What kind of jobs did you have while you were in high school and right after you got out?
S: I had so many jobs. I was a waitress, delivered newspapers, was a chambermaid, making beds in the hotels. I worked at a bakery. I served tea & scones on Sundays. I worked in clothes stores, sold phones from a warehouse.
X: Did you like any of those jobs?
S: Not really. As soon as I started modeling that was the only fun job that I ever had. I always wanted to model and my friends were saying that I couldn’t.
X: Cause you’re not that tall.
S: No I am pretty short. So the only modeling I got to do was flashing my boobs.
S: (Laughs) So I worked for the Daily Sport Newspaper. I was very excited on the first day that I got the job with them.
X: What did you do there?
S: It’s like “page three”. It’s when you flash your boobies for the newspaper. I did that for about a year and a half.
X: So you are the girl on the page everyday?
S: Not everyday. We do fun stuff. Like we visit pubs and have our picture taken with all the customers with our tits out. And the pictures of that go in the newspaper. And on a different day we would go to building sites and do the same thing.
X: That’s funny that they can do that in an English newspaper and here forget about it.
S: Oh yeah, the newspapers over there are like porno mags.
X: So how did you go from doing that to doing porn?
S: Well I did the newspaper, and one of the photographers said you would be very good at doing porn, and I said really? He said you should watch this and see if you can take these cocks in your ass. And it was Mr. Marcus and Lexington Steele.
X: Oh geez (Laughs)
S: Yeah. I remember sitting with him drunk and I was trying to fit this huge black rubber cone in my asshole. And I said, I don’t think I will be able to fit those in my ass because I can’t fit this in my ass, not even the little top part. He said well you can just stick it in your pussy instead and I said, well I can do that!
X: Sounds like you were pretty open-minded at a young age.
S: Yeah. I knew I didn’t belong in a little village. I wanted to adventure out.
X: So how did you get your first porn role?
S: A friend of mine was in porn out here and when I was in England she set me up with a job. I tested it to see if I liked it and it was good. So I contacted Jim South and flew out to LA in ’05.
X: So you did two movies in England and then came to LA. Is Jim still your agent?
S: No, Lee is, my husband. Lee and A-List Talent.
X: I want to know more about Lee. How did you meet him?
S: I had his number for so long because I did a job with one of his models and she gave it to me. And one day I just thought let me try this Lee Bangs guy out and see how good of an agent he is. He picked me up to take me on “Go Sees” and then I didn’t go home. I moved in with him. (Laughs)
X: Well he is very good looking.
S: Yes he is very handsome. I think we became very attracted to each other because we were from different places. He’s from Oklahoma and I’m from the UK. And when we came here we didn’t have that many friends, so when I joined his agency I had a lot of free time and we did a lot of stuff together, like dinner and movies and we became really close.
X: Well he got lucky.
S: Yeah, that’s what everyone says (Laughs) I think I got lucky too. It’s good to have someone older and wiser than I am.
X: That’s sweet to say. Do you get any grief because he is black and you are white?
S: Not really.
X: I wanted to mention that because there is always so much controversy about interracial sex scenes, and I wanted to talk to you about it. You are definitely considered one of the experts on this. You even won the Urban Spice award for Best Interracial Star.
X: How do you feel about interracial porn in general?
S: I think it’s great. I think agents often pressure girls not to do it. A lot of big name porn stars do interracial; Gianna Michaels, Tory Black, Bobby Starr, Belladonna. Nina Hartley’s first ever scene was interracial.
X: The excuses are; I don’t want to do interracial because it will hurt my career, or I don’t want to do interracial because it will lower my rate and I will make less money.
S: Which is stupid, because they will make more money.
X: There is proof that it doesn’t hurt a career, like with all the girls that you mentioned.
S: I like the one when girls say I am just not attracted to black guys. Well are you attracted to Ron Jeremy if you have to work with him? No, your not.
X: Well I like Ron Jeremy, but I get your point. Most of the time you don’t get to pick who you work with and you’re not always going to be attracted to him. The only exception might be a Vivid contract girl who actually picks each guy she is going to do a scene with. And off the top of my head, Janine, Monique & Savanna who are Vivid girls have done interracial. It hasn’t hurt their careers.
S: Right. It’s acting.
X: Why is it that only white girls with black guys is considered interracial?
S: I don’t know. I think it should include Asians with white guys…
X: Right, if an Asian girl is with a white guy isn’t that interracial?
S: I think so.
X: I do to. But those scenes aren’t titled that way.
S: Maybe it’s the contrast of black and white.
X: Yeah, maybe. I think that’s hot. The skin contrast is the hottest thing about interracial to me.
S: Yeah. It looks really hot. And it is very big selling too. I would hope that more girls don’t look at it in a bad way. I wish they would think about it more first before saying that it will hurt their career
X: I have never heard a girl say, I shouldn’t have done that interracial scene because it hurt my career. Have you?
S: No. Or you hear it stretches my pussy too much. Well so does having babies but you still have them.
X: Well if you said, I don’t want to do guys with monster cocks, that would be different. I am sure there are black guys in the industry who don’t have “coke cans” attached.
S: Oh yeah, there are tons of them.
X: And there are white guys that are huge. One of your fans says- “Some people say that black girls don’t make as much money as white girls in the adult business, do you agree?”
S: Yeah, I do agree. I don’t know why that is though. Unfortunately. It kinda sucks.
X: It might be that black girls work for black niche companies that do don’t big budget movies so they pay less.
S: Yeah, unless you are Misty Stone.
X: Misty is an “it” girl right now, she is huge! She was on an Xcitement cover.
S: I like Nyomi (Banxxx) too. She is very, very pretty.
X: She is. I did an interview with her too.
S: Nyomi is a very good actress too.
X: Well you are a good actress and you are gorgeous.
S: Thank you.
Part 2 will be up soon.
