Misty Meadows (born Zelda Silverman; Oct 19,1964 – Jan 5th, 1998) was an Israeli-American pornstar and is often considered to be the “Queen of Interspecies Porn” with a XXX film career spanning 10 years and dozens of XXX appearances from 1982-1992.
Misty Meadows is often regarded as one of the most influential performers in the modern Adult Industry. Stars Tanya Winters and Anne Tayven both credit Misty Meadows with inspiring them to get into the XXX industry.
Misty Meadows first attempted to get into more mainstream films, however early on was becoming frustrated by what she was being presented with.
She first debuted in the 1982 Adult Western/Exploitation film “Sunburn Road”. The film bombed at the box office, was panned by critics and was largely forgotten by audiences within the same year.
Her next role was a brief cameo in the film “Deer Friends” appearing as an unnamed prostitute for 2 scenes in a dorm room. Misty claimed that the experience behind the scenes was awful and it would be her last role in a mainstream film for a decade.
Feedback from film critics/general audiences where almost non-existent however, Misty made quite an impression in the 2 scenes she had, Although short.
Feedback from male viewers was consistent, dying to see more of that beautiful busty mare. The response was enough for her to begin pursuing adult film roles rather that skirting the mainstream. Figuring she could easily break into the adult industry with her ample assets she was almost immediately proven right with an influx of constant work.
