Traci Elizabeth Lords (born May 7, 1968) is an American actress, singer, model, writer, producer and director. Born Nora Louise Kuzma in Steubenville, Ohio, she first achieved notoriety for her underage appearances in pornographic films. Initially landing a job as a nude model at the age of 15, she quickly ventured into adult films. After being featured in the September 1984 issue of Penthouse magazine, Lords appeared in dozens of videos between 1984 and 1986, and became one of the most sought-after pornstars. In May 1986, when authorities discovered she had been underage while making all but one of her pornographic films, distributors were ordered to remove all her material to avoid the risk of prosecution for trafficking in child pornography. The withdrawal of her films cost millions of dollars and her case became the biggest scandal to affect the adult film industry.
