Mini Bio (1)

A very popular performer in 1980s porn, Trinity Loren was an instantly recognizable figure with her large natural breasts at a time when silicone implants were beginning to dominate the adult film industry. More voluptuous than your average porn princess, Trinity's ample figure and relaxed presence made her a sought-after performer, and she graced over 180 productions. Unfortunately, like too many others in the business who get mixed up in the fast lane of Hollywood (whether in porn or "legit" films), Trinity suffered from overwhelming depression, and died of a drug overdose in 1998.

Trinity first gained notice from her spreads in men's magazines and further solidified her reputation on the strip-club circuit, flaunting her striking figure and frizzy amber hair. She graduated to hardcore features in 1985. On screen she was a natural, appearing fresh yet relaxed with her co-stars, who often became friends off set. Performance-wise she was just as adept, showing the kind of control and energy that women half her size would have envied. Halfway through her career she married porn star Barry Wood (aka Barry Woods), but the marriage ended in divorce after the birth of their daughter, Tess, near the end of the decade. Soon afterwards Trinity left porn, moved to Texas and tried to make a new life for her and her daughter, but an ongoing legal dispute with Hunter over custody of the child soon put a damper on her plans for a quiet life. Lengthy (and expensive) court proceedings followed, with the unfortunate result that Trinity lost custody of her daughter. After the proceedings, she moved to California to be able to be near her child. The combination of her marital problems, legal troubles and her ongoing clinical depression resulted in her developing an addiction to both prescription and non-prescription drugs. Her fight against the addiction ended on October 24, 1998, when she died of an accidental overdose. She was 35. Ironically, before her death Trinity had been working, as part of her recovery therapy, on her autobiography. She is buried at the Chatsworth Oakwood Memorial Cemetery in Chatsworth, California, under her real name, Roxanne McPherson.
