LOS ANGELES - Vivid Entertainment has issued a press release introducing new contract girl Meggan Mallone, who signed an exclusive one-year contract with the company Jan. 18.
Of Cherokee and Irish-German descent, the 21-year-old brunette hails from Houston, Texas. A former high school cheerleader, Mallone worked as a mainstream fashion model. During a visit to L.A., she posed for photographers Steven Hicks and Earl Miller and met agent John Stevens, who showed her photos to Vivid director B. Skow. Soon thereafter, the company offered her a contract.
Mallone's mother, a full-blooded Cherokee from Oklahoma, gave her the Indian name "Moonstar." Her father, who died when she was 18, instilled her with a strong work ethic and taught her to make her own decisions, she says.
As a child, Meggan was a Girl Scout and attended church regularly. In addition to cheerleading in high school, she was on the swim team and in the French Club, and worked on the student TV news channel as both a producer and on-air reporter. She said she intends to take college journalism courses in L.A. while shooting for Vivid.
Like AVN award-winner Sunny Lane, Mallone once aspired to be a professional ice skater. "Maybe I could be the first nude ice skating star in the adult industry," she joked. "My friends say that I'm bubbly and animated, and I think they're right. I have a lot of energy and love sports and definitely have a positive attitude towards life. I'm certainly excited about being a Vivid Girl and hope to break some of the stereotypes people have about adult stars."
Mallone has already completed her first scenes under the contract for director Paul Thomas. No release date has yet been set for Mallone's first Vivid title.
