Tom ByronDate of birth: April 4, 1969
Bio: Tom Byron is without a doubt one of the best-known and most prodigious porno studs of all time. He's seen and done it all in this business, pretty much growing up in front of the porno-viewing public. Tom started off in the industry as a lanky, somewhat geeky young man whose only real claim to hardcore fame was his extra-large love organ. His first feature was 1983's 'GVC: Anything Goes 119,' and he quickly became one of the hardest-working guys in the business. Tom landed lots of roles as young virgins coming of age during this period of his career, capping this era with his performance as the debauched high schooler in 1984's 'Kinky Business,' for which he and Ginger Lynn won an AVN Best Couples Sex Scene Award.
The late 80's saw Tom undergo something of a metamorphosis, as he grew into a pretty sleazy looking long-haired rocker type. His greasy hair, fresh new tattoos and expanding paunch gave him the look of just what he was off-screen -- a struggling wannabe rock star. On screen, though, Tom didn't miss a beat as his image changed from young virginal geek to sex-crazed roughnut. Tom's best performance from this era would have to be his AVN Best Actor-winning performance as a ribald rock star in 1991's 'Sizzle.'
The mid-90's saw Tom undergo yet another look and image change, as he chopped his hair off and grew a goatee. He lost his spare tire and emerged as a newly-energized 'alt.rock'-looking stud. Tom's on-screen performances got even more torrid and out of control as he steamed his way through the fresh-faced young starlets of the 90's. He moved behind the camera to direct the hugely popular 'Cumback Pussy' series for Elegant Angel, proving himself to be every bit as talented a filmmaker as he is a performer. With appearances in over 1500 features and a reputation as one of the scene's hottest up-and-coming directors, Tom Byron is a true legend of the porno business. He's a quite deserving member of the AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame. more info »
