Traci Lords considered by many to be the most influential, competent underage porn star of the late twentieth century.

It just lacks an e. Not nice.

This name conjures up the image of a middle-aged secretary with frosted blonde hair and long, pointy red nails. I know there are probably many young Tracis out there, but that's just my mental image. I feel like a younger woman named Theresa would choose at least Tracy, but more likely Tess, Tessa, or Terri as a nickname. They're just more current.

This is my name. Popular in the '70s and '80s but dropped off after that. Guess it could be worse... I could be named Ashley, Jessica or Amanda.

Traci Elizabeth Lords (born Nora Louise Kuzma) is an American actress, singer, model, writer, producer, and director. She achieved notoriety in the mid-1980s after authorities discovered that she was underage when she posed nude and appeared in numerous pornographic films. A native of Steubenville, Ohio, Lords initially landed a job as a nude model at the age of fifteen by using a fake driver's license. After being featured in the September 1984 issue of Penthouse magazine, she appeared in dozens of illegal videos between 1984 and 1986, and became one of the most sought-after pornographic actresses of the era. During May 1986, when law enforcement discovered she had been underage while making all but one of her hardcore films, distributors and video rental stores were ordered to remove all her videos to avoid the risk of prosecution for trafficking in child pornography. The withdrawal of her films cost the industry millions of dollars and her case became the biggest scandal to affect the adult film industry. After her departure from pornography, Lords enrolled at the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute where she studied method acting with the intention of becoming a mainstream actress. She made her screen debut in 1988 (two years after quitting porn), when she had a leading role in the remake of Roger Corman's sci-fi classic Not of This Earth. Lords followed with the role of Wanda Woodward in John Waters' teen comedy, Cry-Baby (1990). Her other acting credits include the television series MacGyver, Married... with Children, Tales from the Crypt, Roseanne, Melrose Place, Profiler, First Wave, Gilmore Girls and Will & Grace. She also appeared in films such as Virtuosity (1995), Blade (1998), Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008) and most recently Excision (2012), which earned her the Fangoria Chainsaw Award for Best Supporting Actress as well as the Fright Meter Award and CinEuphoria Award. In addition to her film career, Lords also pursued music. After her song "Love Never Dies" was featured on the soundtrack to the film Pet Sematary Two (1992), she was signed to Radioactive Records and subsequently released her debut studio album, 1000 Fires (1995) to critical acclaim. Despite the poor sales of the album, the lead single "Control" had moderate commercial success. It managed to peak at number two on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart and was included on the soundtrack to the film Mortal Kombat (1995), which was eventually certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In 2003, Lords published her autobiography, Traci Lords: Underneath It All, which received positive reviews from critics and debuted at number 31 on The New York Times Best Seller list.
