Traci Lords; her career and controversies

Traci made the headlines years back as she performed in many hardcore films in the 1980s. After she was featured in the Penthouse magazine, she elevated herself in the field of pornography at an immature age.

She arrived in several illegal videos between 1984 and 1986 and got a big name and fame. Law enforcement discovered the fact of her early age and soon removed every related video from the market just to avoid child pornography. 

That was her departure from pornography to the mainstream and presented herself on the screen Not of This World and Cry-Baby.

The former adult film actress also appeared in many television series like Profiler, First Wave, Married...with Children, Tales from Egypt, First Wave, and Will & Grace.
