Kelly Nichols’ Porn Star Biography

Early Years

Kelly Nichols was born into a strict Catholic family; she was the oldest girl with five younger brothers. She moved from home when she was 19 to attend art school on a partial scholarship. Needing to pay the rest of her tuition, and after a series of low-paying dead-end jobs, she answered an ad in Sunset International for nude models, which led to her first professional modeling job. Suddenly she was doing nude shoots for Hustler, Penthouse, Swank, and Genesis magazines, posing in solo, lesbian, and even softcore boy/girl shoots, and eventually becoming the Penthouse Pet of the Month.

Early Career

After her introduction to modeling, Kelly moved to New York to join her then-husband who worked in Show World, a live sex show theatre, and they started to do stage shows together. Despite the money they were making, by mid-1980 they had serious financial problems, at which point he suggested that she try performing in a porn film. Her first movie was Chuck Vincent’s Bon Appetit (1980). Nichol’s first sex scene was actually with Jack Wrangler, an iconic gay porn actor. With the ending of her first marriage, Nichols married Tim Connolly—a fellow Show World performer, also known as Dick Howard—and participated in a string of adult productions: Games women Play, Sexboat, and Ultra Flesh. However, she felt that she had to be in a really good film and stumbled into the role she is most known for in Roommates (1981).

Top Rated Porn Movies

Kelly appeared in some of the best adult films of the early 1980s. Apart from the classics, Roommates (1981) and In Love (1983), she also starred in Games Women Play (1980), The Mistress (1982), Society Affairs (1983), Puss ‘N’ Boots (1983), Public Affairs (1983) and Great Sexpectations (1984).

Quirky Facts: Marines Do It Differently

In 1982, Nichols and Connolly split up, at which point she joined the Marines; she went through the physical and got accepted. (Chuck Vincent’s Puss ‘N’ Boots (1983) actually mirrors these real-life events.) Her stint in the Marines didn’t last and she soon returned to the adult industry, as well as a number of mainstream B movies between 1983 and 1985.

Retirement...Parts One, Two, and Three!

In 1985, Nichols met her third husband—John Skipp, a budding screenwriter. She quit the adult business for the first time and had two daughters, initially settling in rural Pennsylvania, but eventually moving to Los Angeles in the late 1980’s (when Skipp’s screenwriting career began to take off with films such as Nightmare on Elm Street 4). Their marriage didn’t last, though, and she eventually divorced for the third time. In 1992, she returned to XXX films and over the next few years starred in a number of bondage and domination movies. However, Kelly quit filming once again in 1995 and spent the next 14 years working as a make-up artist for both adult and mainstream productions. In early 2009, she made a brief comeback to porn in Tom Byron’s Seasoned Players 8—leaving for the third, and probably last, time in 2010. She described her third reappearance as follows: “It was great...it was as if I had never stopped performing; it was so comfortable. I did it, and I had a lot of fun doing it.” Despite a somewhat turbulent time as a porn star, she has claimed she has no regrets: “The industry has given me the best clarity I’ve ever had. This industry, which has made so many people crazy, has made me sane."
