Vivid Girl Savanna Samson won the award for Best Erotic Actress in the World at the 2005 Erotic Line Awards in Berlin on Oct. 23.
Samson was on hand to accept her award, which came as a complete surprise, since she was already in Berlin with Vivid Girl Lexie Marie for a signing appearance at the Venus Expo. Vivid director Paul Thomas, who has directed her in several films, presented Samson with her award.
A classically trained ballerina who has acted in about 30 adult films since the start of her film career, Samson plays Miss Jones in the just-released The New Devil in Miss Jones remake from Vivid, which has already set records for DVD sales. Jenna Jameson plays the Devil in the film.
In honoring Samson, Venus judges said: “As a Vivid Girl Savanna Samson is known to fans worldwide. In more than 30 films this fantastic blonde has proved that nothing about sex is foreign to her. And now her star will rise even further with her top role in The New Devil in Miss Jones!"
The new film is directed by Thomas.
