Cheyenne Silver was born in San Clemente, California. The daughter of a forest ranger, she spent a great deal of time in the wilderness. At age 18 she had a child. After graduating high school she began her career as a dancer in Las Vegas using the name Wildcat (as a tribute to the many years she spent growing up in the wilderness). Wildcat was also the name she used when she first began making adult films. Cheyenne became a contract girl for Vivid Entertainment in 1999. She built a name for herself through her appearances on The Howard Stern Radio Show (1998), The Man Show (1999) and Wild On... (1997). In December 2001 she was Penthouse magazine's Pet Of The Month. The next year she worked on the mainstream film This Girl's Life (2003), which inspired her to make a career change. She stopped making adult movies and began to pursue a mainstream film career. On July 23, 2005, she was married. In December of that year, while she was working on "Villikon Chronicles: Genesis Of Evil (2005)", she and her new husband were involved in a serious automobile accident. Cheyenne suffered severe fractures to her skull and was airlifted to the Englewood, Colorado, trauma center due to bleeding in her brain. After spending a great deal of time recuperating, Cheyenne was able to continue working on "The Villikon Chronicles" and even became a producer of that project. She is now acting under her real name, Cara Fawn.
