This is post I’ve been waiting to write since Monday, when I first heard that she was dead, via a post on Twitter. I wanted to know for sure before I posted anything, but I couldn’t find any confirmation or details on the news. I still don’t know much, although it does seem to be confirmed that she is gone, possibly due to a stroke, which would be quite surprising as she was only just about to turn 56. But I’ll take it as a fact for now, and just thought I’d pay my respects.
This woman used many names during the course of her acting and modeling career, which IMDB lists as lasting from 1990 to 2010. Lisa Comshaw is the name I mostly recognize her by, as that’s how she was credited in most of her softcore roles, although it looks like she may have the most credits under Tory or Tori Sinclair, which she primarily used for her appearances in boxing/wrestling/fetish videos. She also frequently used “Fawna” as a name, along with a couple of others that were only used once or twice. But whatever name you knew her buy, I’m sure she made an impression on you, as she did on me, as she was one smoking hot woman!
To date, I have posted reviews of seven softcore films and TV shows that she appeared in. Starting with 1997’s Confessions of a Lap Dancer, and continuing with Sexual Matrix, Playboy’s Secret Confessions, Lolida 2000, Passion’s Desire, The Erotic House of Wax and Casting Couch. Whether her role was big or small, she always stood out. Not only was she gorgeous, with her fiery red hair, she came from the era where softcore actors were generally required to act, not just look good and be willing to get nude on camera. She was a good actress, equally convincing playing an innocent young woman or a conniving seductress. I think if she’d chosen to pursue it she could have made it in “mainstream” films. I see her credits include roles on the TV shows Silk Stalkings and Renegade. But the mainstream’s loss was the softcore genre’s gain, as she is definitely a Hall of Famer in that industry, as far as I’m concerned. And I am definitely sad to hear of her passing. I just hope that her final days were happy, and I offer my condolences to her family and friends.
