Biography: Lauren Phoenix is a Canadian porn star. Phoenix grew up in the Toronto area. She says she studied music at the University of Western Ontario. She started stripping at age 20, working in the various cities (such as Windsor) because she didn`t want to run into someone who knew where she was from. She has also spent time dancing in England and Las Vegas.
She entered the adult film business in spring 2003 at the age of 24. She has stated she began toying with the idea of becoming more involved in the industry during her dancing days because she saw lucrative opportunities in creating her own websites, as well as producing and distributing her own adult materials. However, she realized that California is where she needed to be to further her ambitions. She moved there and after spending a couple days trying to figure out her next move, Phoenix was discovered by World Modeling. This encounter led to a hasty interview with Ed Powers. Powers was so enamoured with her, that he shot her the same day. Phoenix further explains "I needed money. He was offering."
