Traci Lords is an American film actress, producer, film director, writer and vocalist with a net worth of $7 million dollars. An actress, director, producer, vocalist, and writer who started her career in the porn business, Traci Lords has since become an effective television and B movie actress.
Taking the porn business by storm as a sixteen-year old girl, she acquired notoriety for her underage appearances in pornographic videos that were as many as one hundred flicks. From the time she turned 18, authorities discovered she was underage and used her case to clobber the porn business. As a minor, she couldn’t be charged and was rather viewed as a a victim of the business who was drugged and got to do things against her wishes. Although she maintained she is attempting to flee from her porn past, she kept her stage name which was so associated to her ‘damaging’ marketing. Eventually, Lords became one of the few porn stars to legitimately go mainstream. She starred in several TV series, some low budget movies, including Frostbite, Blade and Princess of Mars. Not being happy to stick with big screen attributes, Lords broke off into other avenues like music, television and maybe even video games. All in an attempt to ensure Lords’ bitter past will undoubtedly be forgotten and she would be linked with something more decent.
