Sharon Kane was without a doubt one of the single most prolific and ubiquitous actresses in hardcore porn. Born on February 24, 1956 in Ohio, Kane grew up as a tomboy in a rural community with her mother and grandparents. Sharon briefly worked as a secretary for the Salvation Army before beginning her career in the adult entertainment industry in the mid-1970's as an exotic dancer at the theater The Screening Room in San Francisco, California. After making her hardcore debut in Alex de Renzy's Pretty Peaches (1978), Kane went on to act profusely in a slew of X-rated features over the course of several decades that encompass gay, straight, bondage, and even transsexual fare as well as 8mm loops and video productions. Outside of her acting credits, the versatile Sharon also worked on adult movies in a variety of behind-the-scenes capacities that include director, writer, producer, set designer, make-up artist, art director, set decorator, production assistant, and even composer (she often sang and played multiple instruments for the latter). Kane has since retired from the adult film industry and now resides in a remote rural area.
