“I love being in front of the camera. Point a camera at me and I’m on!”
Thanks to Facebook friend Joe for helping “point a camera” at the great career of Cult Movie Queen Laurie Wallace!
Celebrating Sex Kitten Laurie Wallace!
My “2022 Sex Kitten Countdown” is highlighting the careers of empowered women across all genres of film.
Laurie Wallace was born on August 25, 1975 in Baltimore, Maryland.
According to online bios, Laurie moved with her parents to a farm in Scotland when she was 7 years old.
Wallace studied ballet growing up – and won more awards in competitive Scottish highland dancing than any other American!
Wallace graduated from Loyola University in Maryland, and attended law school at George Washington University for a year – but an offer to Model in Miami led to a big career change!
After working in Miami for a year, Wallace went to New York and ended up in the pages of Playboy!
While she may not be known that well in cult cinema, Laurie has more than 70 screen credits!
She got her start in an un-credited role in this erotic thriller:
She made her film debut in a small role in “Wild Things” – which was a wild cult film with a revealing role for Denise Richards:
Richards was a “Bond girl”, married to Charlie Sheen and more – see her wildest film roles here:
Laurie got more involved in cult cinema and found her calling in erotic “direct to video” gems like these:
“Witchbabe: The Erotic Witch Project 3”
These erotic takes on popular films like “Blair Witch” were successful in the “direct to video” and “late night pay TV” world, and were fun, easy to watch romps, mostly in the nude:
She appeared in a slew of films with titles like these:
Wallace posed for Playboy’s “Real Sex 2” issue in April, 1999 – and went on to appear in a variety of Playboy special editions – more than twenty!
Laurie understood the business she was in – as she said:
“To be a Model or an Actress, you have to be an exhibitionist: you have to draw attention to yourself, and you’re inclined to enjoy being watched.”
And she was more than willing to be watched!
She made the leap to more explicit films in 2002, as DVD became the outlet of choice for many Actresses:
Laurie continued to work until around 2009, when her credits stopped.
Still, she racked up a number of roles in some fun, goofy films!
Bravo to Laurie for her great cult film career – she was one of a number of stars of that era:
Antonia Dorian was in a number of these parodies as well, and you can see all of her greatest hits here:
India Allen also appeared in a number of these films:
However, her work with Troma didn’t turn out as expected – see that story by clicking here:
Julie Strain also starred in this ill-fated project:
She was a legend, and sadly died last year – here’s a look at her life and career:
