Lisa De Leeuw was born on 3rd July, 1958 in Moline, Illinois, USA was an American pornographic actress.
Biography and Career
Illinois-born Lisa De Leeuw got into porn because of a boyfriend who managed a movie house that showed X-rated films. At first reluctant, she eventually decided to give it a shot, and made her debut in the classic 800 Fantasy Lane (1979).
She quickly became a favorite with fans, who appreciated her lush body, wild mane of red hair and voracious performances. She appeared in many films from what is now called the "Golden Age" of porn, and was one of the first performers to sign an exclusive contract with major adult production company Vivid Video.
She won the Adult Film Critics Award for Best Actress in Amanda by Night (1981) and again
for Blonde Heat (The Case of the Maltese Dildo) (1985), and was inducted into the X Rated Critics Hall of Fame. She left the business in 1987. Sadly, she passed away in 1993, one of the first in the industry to fall victim to AIDS; she was known to be an IV drug user, and reportedly contracted the disease from contaminated needles.
Headpress 25 (2003) noted that DeLeeuw died of complications from AIDS on November 11, 1993. But in the book Skinflicks: The Inside Story of the X-Rated Video Industry (2000), writer and porn producer David Jennings, describing the stigma and rumors surrounding AIDS in the porn community in the late 1980s and early 1990s, wrote, "Reputed to be dead of AIDS, Lisa DeLeeuw and Brandy Alexandre, now out of the industry, proclaimed themselves alive and healthy."
