Billy Dee was born William Randell Daniels on September 25, 1951 in San Diego, California. Dee has four brothers and a sister. Billy first started working at age eleven (he often worked on his grandfather's farm milking cows). Dee lost his virginity in a barn at age fourteen. Dee started out in the adult entertainment industry in the early 1970's doing 8mm hardcore shoots with his then girlfriend while still holding a weekly day job. In the early 1980's Billy's career in porn really took off with the advent of video and he went on to become one of the most prolific and popular top black performers in X-rated fare. Dee was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame in 2002 and the AVN Hall of Fame in 2011. Long since retired from the adult film industry (he went on to attend Bible college after quitting porn), Billy now primarily resides in Bristol, South West England.
