Ashlyn Gere (born Kimberly Ashlyn McKamy on September 14, 1959 in Cherry Point, North Carolina) is an American pornographic actress who performs in both straight and lesbian films. She is also an actress in mainstream film and television, best known for her work on the television series Space: Above and Beyond.
She was a cheerleader in high school and graduated from the University of Nevada in Las Vegas with a double major in Theater Arts and Communications.
In the 1980s she was an actress in several B-movies: for example, 1987's Creepozoids, in which she plays the character "Kate" and is billed as Kim McKamy. She was a body double in the films Basic Instinct and Indecent Proposal. Gere began working in adult films in 1990, becoming renowned for her very athletic performances. She acted under the name Kimberly Patton in the television series Space: Above and Beyond from 1995 to 1996; she also appeared under that name in episodes of Silk Stalkings and Millennium.
Gere began acting in pornographic films during the same time frame as her bit part career in mainstream acting. She continued her pornographic career while playing on the shows listed above, becoming one of the few actresses to successfully balance both mainstream and pornographic careers (as opposed to the usual tactic of focusing exclusively on one aspect or the other). She has also appeared under the Patton name in the films The One and Willard, and was credited as Kimberly Ashlyn Gere for an appearance on The X-Files.
Ashlyn's first anal sex scene was possibly in a showcase movie for the event - Ashlyn Gere - Put It In Gere : Put It In Her Rear. However, in the first installment of Ashlyn Gere - Realities she claims the anal scene with Tom Byron was the first recorded instance.
She has been married to Marshall Patton (a.k.a. Layne Parker) since 1988 and they have one child together.
Ashlyn Gere interview
You are, without a doubt, one of the most popular porn stars of all time. Have you ever been recognized in public at a time when you would have much rather just not been bothered?
No, I have been lucky in that respect, and I don't wear as much makeup in my every day life, so I am not as easily recognizable.
I met you at the East Coast Video Show one year and I remember seeing am asshole you were posing for a picture with put his hands all over you, much to your obvious displeasure. You kept moving his hand off your butt and he kept putting it back there with this big shit-eating grin on his face completely ignoring the fact that you obviously didn't want it there. Did circumstances like that ever turn into an ugly situation?
No, not really. I've had mostly good luck dealing with people - I have only had to kick two or three men out of a club that I danced at.
How did you handle those two or three guys?
Usually, I slap their face and yell "You're out of here!" and the bouncers do the rest.
My all-time favorite porn is in the movie Malibu Spice, in which you play a relatively conservative woman with glasses that does not wear much makeup or dress the "porn star" part. What are you more like outside of the porn world - glamor queen or "down-to-earth" girl?
I'm down to earth... the girl next door. I like having a life!
We've interviewed a lot of porn stars over the last several years and have raved about movies they have done while they sat there in front of us, only to have them ask "Ummm, which movie was that? I don't remember any of the movies I have done." What percentage of films you have done could you actually recollect if someone was to mention the title?
I would say approximately 70%. You have to keep in mind that I've been making adult films now for 11 years, so that is a lot of movies to remember!
Do you remember filming Malibu Spice? Was it particularly more or less fun than other films you have done?
Malibu Spice was enjoyable, and that is when I met Jeanna Fine. She's awesome! I don't really remember it other than her, because originally I was not supposed to be in it. Someone turned it down at the last minute and I stepped in to help out.
A lot of porn folks live as wild a life off camera as they do on - wild sex parties, swinging, etc. How different is your off-camera life from your on-camera one?
Making movies is a part of my career as an actress. If I didn't love it, I wouldn't do it. I love to act. My real life, away from stage and film is fairly normal. I've been to some outrageous clubs and parties, but that is only once in a while.
Considering your huge porn profile, I would imagine your family knows what you do for a living. Are they supportive?
My family is important to me. They come first! They know what I do and have been supportive. We are still close.
Has your porn work been a stigmata of sorts in getting non-porn acting work?
I started in theater, then low budget movies, then adult films and still do regular TV and films. Both are and have been very enjoyable and I've never had a problem getting cast. I've done the X-Files, Silk Stalkings, Millenium, and just finished a part in the new Jet Li movie, "The One."
What strikes me about the performances of yours I have seen is that you never seemed to be going through the motions - you always looked as if you genuinely enjoyed the sex. Have you ever had to do a scene you just straight up did not want to do from the get go that you were not into at all?
I always O.K. the script and the actors I work with, so I have never had that situation occur.
What do you prefer: feature dancing or making movies?
I prefer making movies. My first love is acting!
Have you ever dated a fan or met someone at a club you were dancing that you hit it off with and hung out with after?
I've hung out with a few people on the road. It depends on them and how comfortable I feel. Generally, I enjoy meeting the people who watch my films and saying "Thank You" to them.
When was your first sexual experience with a woman?
It was on camera, with Selena Steele. She claims possession of my cherry!
Are you bisexual in your real life?
I've heard it said that, in general, women are better at cunnilingus than men. Your opinion?
I think it depends on the person. Selena is great, but some men I know are awesome too, like director Layne Parker. What do you consider to be a real kick-ass meal?
Lobster, rice, and a salad with extra blue cheese... and, of course, chocolate mousse for dessert. But, usually, I like simple food. Pizza's always good!
A woman after my own heart! Any mainstream celebrities you would like to fuck?
Al Pacino, Sylvester Stallone and Ricky Martin!
