Lezley Zen is a fan-favorite adult film star, feature dancer and glamour model who has been thrilling fans since 2001. Best known for her sensational Brazzers, Vivid and Wicked Pictures productions, Lezley won “Best Supporting Actress: Film” at the 2005 AVN Awards and she has received numerous “Best Group Sex Scene”, “Best Oral Sex Scene” and “Best All-Girl Sex Scene” nominations at the AVN and XRCO Awards.
So where did it all begin? Hailing from Charleston, South Carolina, Lezley has Cherokee and Irish heritage. Lezley’s first ever job was training horses in South Carolina and she mentioned in her January 2014 Barelist interview that;
“First job was training horses in South Carolina…I lived in a barn for 2 years while doing that.. It was amazing!”.
You may be interested to learn that Lezley attended college for three years, graduated with a degree in Business and was in a pre-law program. Lezley worked in the restaurant industry for many years prior to making her porn debut – she was a bartender in Charleston for 8 years and she was also the manager of a Westin Hotel as well as an Italia Trattoria restaurant in South Carolina. Reflecting on these early years during her January 2014 Barelist interview, Lezley divulged that;
“If I hadn’t gotten into the biz I would probably own my own restaurant by now.. I was a restaurant and hotel manager for years and loved it.. I’m hoping to find my way back to that soon :)”.
Lezley first started working in the adult entertainment industry as an exotic dancer and she also took part in various bikini and wet T-shirt contests. Lezley primarily performed at the Crazy Horse club in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. In fact, it was whilst Lezley was dancing at the amateur night of a club that she met a feature dancer who suggested she should pursue a career in porn. Spurred on by this recommendation, Lezley contacted Wicked Pictures and discussed her options with Brad Armstrong and Jonathan Morgan. Before you know it, Lezley was flying out to shoot her porn debut. And the rest is history! As Lezley explained during her October 2002 Pornstar Empire interview;
“I managed restaurants for ten years, worked 120 hours a week, and walked with about 1,200 dollars a week before taxes. Just not worth it. Originally the reason I got in was to spite my fiancée. Then I found out how much money I could make, so I just stayed in it…I love to be the center of attention, and I love people watching me. I like to put on a show. Even in my own sex life I’m really exhibitionist. It’s not really acting. It’s just part of who I really am”.
Lezley Zen : Adult Film Career
In 2001 Lezley filmed her first ever sex scenes with Brad Armstrong for the Wicked Pictures production Serenity’s Roman Orgy (2002). Lezley also starred alongside Kylie Ireland and Nikki Loren in Jonathan Morgan’s Wicked Pictures movies New Girls In Town #3 and #4 (2002). Talking about shooting her adult film industry debut during her March 2006 Luke Is Back interview, Lezley recounted how;
“I needed to do something different. I needed to shake things up in my life…I called Wicked Pictures and Brad Armstrong and Jonathan Morgan. I asked a lot of questions. Then I flew out for the weekend and did Serenity’s Roman Orgy and New Girls in Town…I wanted to pay off my debts from my divorce. I bought a new car. I bought furniture. I put my kids through private school. I got a lot accomplished. I helped my mom out…It wasn’t the attention. I could give a —-. When I want attention, I get it…I enjoy being in front of the camera. I enjoy being seductive. I enjoy teasing in a dark way”.
Wondering about the original of her seductive stage name ‘Lezley Zen’? Well, Lezley revealed in her January 2014 Barelist interview that;
“I came up with my stage name my first weekend in LA I had a bi curious friend named Liz and by the end of the night we were calling her lezzy Liz and in a slightly buzzed state turned into Lezley Liz.. So we all decided Lezley was perfect and zen went with the tattoo on my back”.
Over the years Lezley has appeared in a wide range of best-selling Wicked Pictures productions. We recommend checking out Lezley’s steamy scene with Devinn Lane in Women In Uniform (2002) that was nominated for “Best All-Sex Video” at the 2003 AVN Awards, her thrilling three-way with Avy Scott and Brad Armstrong in Something So Right (2002), her saucy scenes with Devinn Lane, Lee Stone and Mike Horner in Sex On Film (2002) which was nominated for “Best Sex Comedy” at the 2003 AVN Awards and her epic orgy with Ashley Long, Flick Shagwell, Zana, Alex Sanders, Lee Stone, Randy Spears and Steve Hatcher in Hercules (2002) that was nominated for “Best Sex Comedy” at the 2003 AVN Awards.
Wait, there’s even more! Lezley also shared a sultry scene with Julia Ann in Love And War (2003), she shot a sizzling scene with Randy Spears for Fluff And Fold (2004) which earned her a “Best Supporting Actress: Video” nomination at the 2005 AVN Awards and she filmed a scintillating group sex scene with Jessica Drake, Monica Sweetheart, Tommy Gunn and Trevor Zen for Eye of the Beholder (2004) that was nominated for “Best Group Sex Scene: Video” at the 2005 AVN Awards and “Best Group Scene” at the 2005 XRCO Awards. Lezley also starred alongside Kaylani Lei in Between The Sheets (2005) and she shared a steamy scene with Chris Evans in The Closer (2005) that was nominated for “Best Feature Film” at the 2006 VOD Awards. Not to be missed!
One of Lezley’s most popular Wicked Pictures productions has been The Collector (2004). Directed by Brad Armstrong, Lezley shared a compelling three-way with Jessica Drake and Brad Armstrong that was nominated for “Best Group Sex: Film” at the 2005 AVN Awards. This sizzling scene was even honoured as one of “AVN’s 10 Terrific Oral Sex Scenes” at the 2005 AVN Awards. Lezley has loved collaborating with Brad Armstrong on these Wicked Picture productions and she eagerly expressed in her October 2002 Pornstar Empire interview that;
“I love working with Brad [Armstrong]. He was the first person I had ever had sex with on film. I like working with Brad because Brad and I have that same sadistic sense of stupid humor. We like to just pick at each other, and it comes through in our scenes”.
Another of Lezley’s most popular Wicked Pictures productions has been Curse Eternal (2005) within which she shared a sensational group sex scene with Eva Angelina, Gia Jordan, Ice La Fox, Jessica Drake, Kelly Kline, Brad Armstrong, Joey Ray and Kris Knight. Directed once again by Brad Armstrong, and also starring Alyssa Knight, Kaylani Lei, Keri Sable, Tiffany Taylor and Tory Lane, Curse Eternal was an instant hit which won “Best Release” at the 2006 XRCO Awards. What’s more, Curse Eternal received a rave review from XCritic column writer Don Houston who stated in his March 2006 film review that;
“Curse Eternal: Collector’s Set had a lot of fuck for the buck, solid extras, and perfect casting to combine for a rating of Highly Recommended for anyone who likes feature porn. If you’d rather enjoy a disposable gonzo flick, there are many to pick from in any given week but Jessica Drake and Kaylani Lei were both superb as they provided some fine entertainment (sexual and as part of the story). I’m pretty sure that this will be one of the titles on everyone’s short list for various awards later on in the year for all it had to offer, never skimping on the sex or story, allowing fans to see both or skip ahead if they so choose. Oh, and for Jessica, I can tell you that there are indeed a number of people that listen to the entire audio commentary (like me) and if you compare your commentaries to those of other performers (primarily at other companies), you should know you do a great job (a great job being the operative phrase for the entire production this time). To sum it up, Curse Eternal was cursed with the high quality Wicked Pictures has long been known for, raising the bar yet again for others to try and surpass”.
You’ll be happy to hear that Lezley has continued to collaborate with Brad Armstrong on several sensational Wicked Pictures feature releases such as Countdown (2012). Featuring Alektra Blue, Dana DeArmond, India Summer, Jessica Drake, Kaylani Lei and Misty Stone, this star-studded movie was nominated for “Best Drama” at the 2013 AVN Awards, “Adult Movie of the Year” at the 2013 Sex Awards, “Feature Movie of the Year” at the 2013 XBIZ Awards and “Best Epic” at the 2013 XRCO Awards. Fans of Lezley Zen will also love watching her thrilling three-way with Lexi Belle and Paisley Parker in Girls Night (2015) and her amazing group sex scene with Jessica Drake, Katrina Jade, Remy LaCroix and Vicki Chase in Massage School Dropouts (2015) which was nominated for “Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene” at the 2016 AVN Awards. Lezley and her fellow Massage School Dropouts cast members all received high praise from director Brad Armstrong who stated in an April 2015 XBIZ News press release that;
“Massage oil movies are one of the hottest things out there right now. Let’s face it — nothing looks better than a hot girl covered in oil, her glistening flesh writhing in ecstasy as she’s getting fucked. I wanted to take that sensation and build a story around it. So I decided on ‘Massage School Dropouts’ — a band of sexy, quirky characters who do what they can to get by. Massage girls by day, thieves by night. It’s a fun movie that turned out really well, and the girls are all great in it. And most importantly, it has a ‘happy ending’”.
Lezley Zen : Vivid Collaborations (2002 – 2005)
Alongside her ongoing Wicked Pictures collaborations, Lezley has appeared in an impressive collection of Vivid movies. We recommend checking out Lezley’s steamy scenes with Briana Banks, Shauna Banks and Nick Manning in Swoosh (2002), her scintillating scene with Eric Masterson in Good Things (2002), her sizzling scene with Ava Vincent in 1 Way Out (2003), her raunchy group shoot with Cherokee, Dasha, Sunrise Adams, Eric Masterson, Eric Price and Dez in Nailed (2003) and her thrilling three-way with Jordan Haze and Rob Fontana in Debbie Does Dallas: The Revenge (2003) that was nominated for “Best Group Sex Scene: Film” at the 2005 AVN Awards.
Without a doubt, one of Lezley’s best Vivid movies has been Bare Stage (2004) within which she shared some seductive scenes with Savana Samson and Eric Masterson. Directed David Stanley and also starring Dominica Leoni, Nicole Sheridan and Wendy Divine, Bare Stage was a critical and commercial success which resulted in Lezley winning “Best Supporting Actress: Film” at the 2005 AVN Awards. Lezley was also nominated for “Single Performance – Actress” at the 2005 XRCO Awards and she received numerous “Best Oral Sex Scene: Film” and “Best All-Girl Sex Scene: Film” nominations at the 2005 AVN Awards due to her stellar performances with Eric Masterson and Savana Samson. Bare Stage was even highly recommended by XCritic column writer Disco Dirge who advocated in his November 2004 film review how;
“The fornication is energizing and fiery, with a plot that is strong and playful. Even the actual acting is flawless. On the Disco Dirge Peter Meter, this film deserves a 9.5 out of 10 and cannot be recommended too highly. Couples crave titles like this – pornography that is both entertaining and erotic…David Stanley is a skin savant, a man in touch with both wit and wantonness. Bare Stage is his hilarious homage to the hopes and dreams of all wannabe stars. While the smut is a powerful selling point, this is also an exceptionally risible film – especially for individuals who know by heart the performers appearing. When Little Girl, Big City takes its curtain call, it is not hard to imagine the audience leaping from their seats, adjusting their flies and giving the theatrical troupe a standing ovation. You’ll want to do the same for this sensational skin satire, and its certifiable genre genius David Stanley. Bare Stage is one of the best adult films ever”.
Following the success of Bare Stage, Lezley was cast in Paul Thomas’s Vivid movie Les Bitches (2005) and she shared some titillating scenes with Kira Kener, Roxanne Hall, Alec Metro, Dale DaBone and Nick Manning. Unsurprisingly, these compelling scenes earned Lezley some notable “Best Actress: Film” and “Single Performance – Actress” nominations at the 2006 AVN and XRCO Awards. Not to be missed!
Lezley Zen : PinkTV Spokesmodel & Popular Porn Productions
In June 2005 Lezley relocated from the San Fernando Valley in California, to Miami, Florida, where she signed a non-exclusive, one year performance contract with Pink TV. Lezley attended numerous industry events as a Pink TV spokesmodel. Lezley also hosted adult game shows on Pink TV and she was the star of their interactive BDSM soap opera Into The Mist. As well as these industry TV roles, Lezley has also appeared on various late night soft-core shows for HBO and Cinemax. Talking about these mainstream projects in her October 2002 Pornstar Empire interview, Lezley divulged that;
“I just did an audition for CSI. I’m starting to do a lot of HBO and Cinemax, the late night softcore stuff…I’m sure every adult star would want to do mainstream acting. I think it would be great, but I don’t want it to take me out of porn altogether. This is where I began so I would never totally walk away from that. Until it’s time”.
Lezley also discussed the biggest misconceptions that people have about the adult industry during this October 2002 Pornstar Empire interview, highlighting how;
“I think the biggest misconception people have about the industry is like the fluffing and the playing around. All this sexual activity goes on, on set, off set… No! It’s work. It’s a lot of work. I think a lot of people’s biggest misconception is, ‘Oh, god, how hard is it to do that?’ I don’t know. You tell me how hard it would be to walk on a set with forty people you probably don’t know, and have to have sex with someone you don’t know, that you might’ve never met before, and now you are thrown on a rock somewhere, and said, “Okay go! I’m going to tell you three positions I want you to have sex in, I need you to hold each of those positions having sex for thirty to forty minutes, until I tell you stop. Hold your leg here, put your arm there, make this face, come on make some more noise! Okay, pop right now!” If somebody thinks that’s fun and exciting and…[laughs]”.
