Alia Janine Dailey Willis grew up in Wisconsin with her mother, a registered nurse; her stepfather, a warehouse manager; her father, a retired Vietnam Veteran Sergeant; her step-mother, a C.P.A.; three step-brothers, and a half brother. Alia's parents were never married, and with both of their other marriages, Alia moved a total of twenty-eight times and went to twelve different school in three different states.
Alia always had a passion for dancing that had led her to become an exotic dancer in her early twenties. Before she had fully learned the feature dancing and burlesque circuit she had fallen in love, and decided to settle down only after a year and half of performing. She then attended college at a local technical school to study on of her other passions, the law, and went for a degree in Criminal Justice. In her first year, she made the honor roll, by her second year she was a member of two honor societies, her last year she was certified for law enforcement, and obtained her private security license for the state of Wisconsin.
After a horrible break-up, Alia decided to try to pursue dancing one more time. On her thirtieth birthday, she moved to Florida to attend dance school. Dancing wasn't the only art she explored in Florida, however, and she soon gave performing in adult movies a try. She debuted in February 2009 with "Mamazon" and later that year moved to Los Angeles, where she completed her full-time leap into performing in the pornographic film industry. She has since appeared in more than a hundred scenes for most of the biggest companies in the business, and has been nominated for different pornographic industry awards for her work. Though she is most popularly known for her work against Measure B, the mandatory condom law in Los Angeles.
Alia has also appeared in magazines such as "Score", "Gent", "D-Cup", "Busty Beauties" and is in Lainie Speiser's book, "Confessions of the Hundred Hottest Porn Stars." Alia has also hosted Foursome for Playboy T.V. and has tried things on the main-stream side of the entertainment industry by performing in a cable movie, having an extra part in a feature film, and has had a cameo in a music video. Although her career in the pornographic industry was a short four years, she made quite an impact.
Christopher Hunt decided to become an actor in 2005 at the age of 20. At the time, he was in his second year of college at Vincennes University studying computer networking, but had the summer off. One night due to boredom, he decided to watch an episode of Smallville on the CW Network to pass the time when a scene starring John Schneider came on. Immediately Christopher was hooked and knew what he wanted to do with the rest of his life.
Instead of finishing up his last year of college, Christopher decided to drop out and pursue his new found dream. His first job was being a production assistant and an extra on a local independent film. His time behind the camera only made his urge to be in front of it that much more prominent. His next project was a small role in a short film. It was his first speaking role where he played a ticket taker at an old movie theater. That small role drove him to find new and exciting roles to play and expand himself on.
Whenever Christopher wasn't working on a film, he continued to grow as an actor through practice and reading anything about acting he could get his hands on. He supported himself by working odd computer and electronic jobs for the next three years. In 2008, Christopher came to the reality that if he was ever going to move out to California and thrive as an actor, that he would have to have a backup plan under his belt. That year, he re-enrolled in college at Vincennes University to complete his courses and graduate with an Associate of Applied Science degree. After his enrollment, he discovered that he could also take theater classes and jumped at the opportunity. In 2009, Christopher graduated college and was eager to start acting again.
Immediately after graduation, he landed a supporting role in an independent feature length film where he perfected his role. He was so involved in the film and character that he performed his own fight stunts.
In December of 2009, Christopher made the honorable decision to support his country and join the United States Air Force. Although he committed himself to the Air Force, it didn't changed his ultimate goals or dreams in life.
Christopher's dream is to one day work with actor John Schneider.
