ABOUT WHITNEY WRIGHT:
Adult performer Whitney Wright is one of the newest faces in the industry, and her reputation as a star on the rise is no surprise: the 26-year old raven-haired, green-eyed, all-natural beauty of Native American-Welsh descent has quickly become a favorite of porn fans – and Porn Valley studios – in a remarkably short period of time.
The star of more than 60 adult films for the industry’s top studios and content sites, launched her onscreen career in September 2016 after pursuing an education in the medical/nursing field and feature dancing at clubs in her native Oklahoma City. The shift in professions has so far paid off, and Whitney has quickly built a solid fan base and respected status amongst her industry peers, earning a Best New Starlet AVN Award nomination for 2018. “This business has been a whirlwind of excitement and opportunities,” says Whitney. “I’m just enjoying the ride.”
