Christy Canyon Porn Star Biography

Born Melissa Kaye Bardizbanian, Cristy Canyon is half Armenian and half Italian; at age 17, she moved out of her house and worked two part-time jobs. In 1984 she met adult star Greg Rome, who introduced her a respected agent in the industry, Jim South, at World Modeling Agency. South immediately took Christy under his wing and arranged for her to do exotic photo layouts and a loop for Swedish Erotica with Ron Jeremy—with their assistance, she quickly established herself as a superstar in mid-80s XXX movies. At the height of her career, Christy was working a full schedule while under contract to Vivid, touring as an exotic dancer, and yet managed to earn a post-secondary Marketing degree from Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and be named F.O.X.E. Female Fan Favorite in 1991 and 1992.

Top Rated Films and Sexy Partners

Despite her initial reservations about becoming a sex performer, Christy's concerns evaporated once cast opposite industry pros Ginger Lynn, Tom Byron, and Jamie Gillis in back-to-back Michael Phillips’ Paradise Visuals projects: The Night of Loving Dangerously (1984)—a spoof of the mainstream 1982 Mel Gibson movie The Year of Living Dangerously in which Christy plays Harrison’s (Jamie Gillis) daughter Louise—and On Golden Blonde (1984)—a feature loosely inspired by the storyline in Heaven Can Wait (1978) in which she played Alice, a gorgeous young woman furious that her young life was cut short as a result from a mix up in heaven. After these films, she worked almost continuously; releases such as Dirty Letters (1984), Hollywood Starlets (1985), and Wild Things (1985) are but a sampling of her filmography (directed by Michael Carpenter, Bruce Seven, and Alex deRenzy, respectively).

Career

Christy took a break from performing for a few years after these successes; her decision came on the heels of a toxic relationship she experienced with boyfriend Michael Paulsen, who didn’t appreciate the fact his girlfriend was a porn star. She worked for her father from 1985 to 1989 in the Christmas tree business. However, she still had unfinished business in the porn part of her life, and staged an comeback in June 1989 with her own video line aptly christened Canyon Video. Within a year, she became one of the very first and most celebrated contract girls for Vivid Entertainment, signing an eight-year deal. One of Christy’s more well known performances was made with Vivid—Paul Thomas in the director’s chair—and was the 1991 release A Portrait of Christy costarring Rick Savage, Peter North, T. T. Boy, and Joey Silvera. Once again, she left the business in December 1992 before returning in February 1995 and reconnecting with Vivid. Upon this retun, she made a parody for Vivid that mirrored her comeback, suitably titled Comeback. Her final movie role come in 1996 for Vivid Video with Janine Lindemulder: Where the Boys Aren’t 9; it was released in 1997. Depite the cessation of filming, she continued her dancing career until she retired for good in 2001.
