of Racquel Darrian
Darrian (born Kelly Jackson on July 21, 1968) is an American
pornographic actress. Born in Hutchinson, Kansas, Darrian
moved to California with her family when she was seven years
old. She started her career as a nude model posing for lesbian-themed
photoshoots. When she crossed over to adult film, she initially
performed only in "all-girl" scenes. As offers increased for
her to participate in heterosexual scenes, she began working
onscreen with Derrick Lane (whom she married in 1994). She
signed an exclusive contract with Vivid Video; eventually
tiring of constantly working with Lane, she insisted on working
with other men. Darrian divorced from Derrick Lane in 2000.
She has a daughter, Brooke, born in June 1997. Racquel
Darrian is sometimes referred to as the "brunette goddess
of porn" and her most celebrated attribute is her derriere.
She made about 100 adult films between her first film Warm
Bodies, Hot Nights in 1988 and her final film Kink (also published
under the title Girlfriend) in 1999. Darrian has appeared
in Penthouse and Playboy magazines. She was the October 1990
Penthouse Pet of the Month, as Kelly Jackson, and in Playboy's
1996 pictorial "Strippers". Darrian has also appeared in numerous
solo, lesbian, straight, and group pictorial spreads in Velvet
magazine between 1990 and 2002 (including at least 20 covergirl
or co-covergirl appearances) including several centerfold
spreads and fold-out posters, as well as a "Dear Racquel"
section in many issues containing letters from fans with responses
by her. She currently lives in Las Vegas and works as a feature
dancer at clubs across the U.S.
