Samantha Fox (a stage name) is a New York City girl. Born and raised in the Big Apple, she came under the Broadway influence and studied dance throughout her childhood and teens. These young years of continuous practice developed her into a dancer's taut, slim body, which was fashionable at that time. She began dancing professionally before graduating from high school. The exposure led her to into the entertainment business, and soon she was co-hosting a New York City television show. After that, she began working small parts in the adult film industry. Her break came when she was noticed by director/producer Chuck Vincent, who cast her in the starring role of Bad Penny (1978). This established her as leading role actress and launched her into several films. In 1980 she won the Erotica Award for her work with Jack Wrangler in _Jack 'n' Jill, Part 1 (1979)_. The following year she was recognized with the Erotica Award again for her role in Tramp (1980). Thus she had established herself as one of the leading stars in adult films during that time, capable of a full range of roles from sweet innocence to hard domination. The influence of the Video Camera Recorder (VCR) on the adult film industry was not kind to Samantha. As adult videos grew in popularity and social acceptability, the market enlarged as well. Samantha's slim, natural body was not as favored as as her silicon-enhanced sisters of the late 1980s on into the 1990s. Her self-integrity stopped her from joining the fad. Her noticeable New York accent also worked against her. Consequently her roles diminished. However, her long-time friendship with Chuck Vincent and a few others in the industry, such as Gloria Leonard and Jane Hamilton (aka Veronica Hart), brought her numerous small roles and walk-ons in the late 1980s, but we've seen very little of her since then. Due to her stage name, Samantha is now often confused with the British pop-rock singer with the legal name of Samantha Fox. However, only the name, the suggestive lyrics of several of the singer's recordings, and a sultry modeling career launch as a Page Three Girl come close to resembling what the actress Samantha Fox has done to forward the human right of self-decision, sexual expression and freedom, acceptance of alternative lifestyles, and offering of love.
