Traci Elizabeth Lords (born Nora Louise Kuzma on May 7, 1968) is an American actress, singer, model, writer, producer and director. Born in Steubenville, Ohio, she first became known for her underage appearances in pornographic movies. Initially accepting a job as a nude model at the age of 15, she then became a movie actress. After being featured in the September 1984 issue of Penthouse magazine, Lords appeared in dozens of illegal videos between 1984 and 1986, and became one of the most sought-after pornography actresses of the era. During May 1986, when authorities discovered she had been underage while making all but one of her pornographic movies, distributors were ordered to remove all her material to avoid the risk of prosecution for trafficking in child pornography. The withdrawal of her movies cost millions of dollars and her case became the biggest scandal to affect the pornographic movie industry.

After quitting pornography, Lords had a career as a mainstream actress and enrolled at the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute where she studied method acting. She made her mainstream movie debut during 1988, when she was offered the main role in the remake of Roger Corman's classic Not of This Earth. Lords followed with the role of Wanda Woodward in John Waters' teen comedy, Cry-Baby (1990). Her other acting credits include the television series MacGyver, Married... with Children, Tales from the Crypt, Roseanne, Melrose Place, Profiler, First Wave, Gilmore Girls and Will & Grace. She also appeared in movies such as Virtuosity (1995), Blade (1998), Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008) and most recently Excision (2012) and Devil May Call (2013).

Besides her movie career, Lords is also a recording artist. After her song "Love Never Dies" was featured on the soundtrack to the movie Pet Sematary Two (1992), she got signed to Radioactive Records and subsequently released her debut studio album, 1000 Fires (1995) to a critical acclaim. Despite the poor sales of the album, the main single "Control" had a moderate commercial success. It managed to peak at number two on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart and was included on the soundtrack to the movie Mortal Kombat (1995), which was eventually certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). During 2003, Lords published her autobiography, Traci Lords: Underneath It All, which received positive reviews from critics and debuted at number thirty-one on the The New York Times Best Seller list.
