HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. - Adam & Eve has signed 22-year-old Kayden Kross to an exclusive performance contract.
The one-year contract calls for the Sacramento native to perform in 12 movies in 2008.
“It was a natural,” Kross said. “Adam & Eve produces some of the best adult material out there today for women and couples. They really focus on their contract stars as individuals. It¹s the only place I’d want to be.”
“We were impressed with her immediately,” said Peter Reynolds, vice president of sales and marketing for Adam & Eve. “As soon as we met her we were not only taken with her beauty, but we were very impressed with how she presented herself and how smart she was. And we felt that she would be an ideal representative of Adam & Eve.
"... I’m excited to unveil her signing flyer at [the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo], because it’s a beauty. I’ve seen a lot of signing flyers over the years and this one is truly phenomenal.”
Reynolds revealed that Kross's first Adam & Eve movie would be a western-themed project called Kayden's Krossfire, which will begin shooting by February.
"It's a woman who carries a badge and it has a western theme but it's set in the modern day," he said.
Kross gained notoriety as a print model for magazines such as Penthouse, Hustler and Club before signing a contract with Vivid Entertainment Group in November of 2006. She starred in Kayden's First Time, Hard Time and Be Here Now for Vivid. The former exotic dancer was a senior at Sacramento State College when Vivid scooped her up. Her most recent starring role was in Ninn Worx_SR's Meet Kayden, which was released earlier this month.
Kross began her career dancing in order to raise money for a pony that was scheduled to be slaughtered. Her love for animals is notorious.
“My ultimate goal is to one day own a horse farm,” she explained. “I have always wanted to rescue animals and create a safe place for them to live out their days.”
But Kross can quickly go from demure to dangerous.
“I hear ‘action’ and I start getting wet,” she joked. “There¹s just something about the lights and the sets, something primal in me just takes over and everything is heightened.”
Her energy on camera caught the attention of Adam & Eve.
“Kayden is simply amazing,” explained Adam & Eve executive producer Meredith Christopher. “She can come across as sweet and shy or desperate and depraved. But that¹s exactly what you want in a contract star. She’s a chameleon and the camera and fans love her!”
Kross can also be seen in Bree’s Slumber Party and Bree & Kayden.
The 5-foot-5 starlet joins an Adam & Eve contract girl lineup that already includes Carmen Luvana, Ava Rose and Bree Olson. All four girls will be meeting fans at the Adam & Eve booth Jan. 9-12 at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas.
