Tera Patrick Tera Patrick was born in Great Falls, Montana, on July 25, 1976 named Linda Ann Hopkins. Daughter of American father and Thai mother, she has become one of the most important porn actresses, directors and producers in history.

At the age of 13 she was discovered by a Japanese photographer who enrolled her in the Barbizon Modeling School. She then signed with the agency Morning Sun and became a fulltime model, working her teen years in Japan, Europe and New York. After five years modeling she enrolled in Boise State University to take classes in biology and medicine, earning a certificate as an emergency medical technician and a degree to be a registered nurse. As a nurse she worked in Simi Valley, California.

Even though Tera loved nursing, her friends convinced her to get back into modeling. So she found herself at an audition for Playboy where she was selected for both the magazine and for Playboy TV. This was her beginning as an adult model, a career that has seen her become one of the most important models ever, being the only woman to be on the covers of Playboy and Penthouse simultaneously and is also the only erotic performer to be on the cover of FHM. She became Penthouse Pet of the Month in February 2000 and was the runner up for Pet of the Year.

Eventually she decided to enter the adult film industry and her debut was in Andrew Blake’s movie Aroused, in a softcore lesbian scene. Her first heterosexual hardcore scene was in the movie Fire and Ice. Her performances in that debut year led her to wide recognition and several awards for breakthrough actress, including the Hot d’Or, AVN and XRCO awards. Between 2003 and 2004 she took a year off cameras, had breast increase surgery, on January 9, 2004 she got married with Evan Seinfeld, singer and bass player of the metal band Biohazard, and with him they founded their own producer, Teravision. From that moment on she only filmed girl-girl scenes or straight scenes only with him until 2006. In 2005 they also founded The Tera Patrick Agency to seek for new talents.
