Shauna was one of the most beautiful pornstars of all time. Definitely one of my Top 2 or 3.

She definitely (and literally) was a beautiful, corn fed girl from the farm belt who just got off the bus in Hollywood. Certainly back in the early 1980s, she stood out simply because she looked so much more wholesome than the average girls who were doing hardcore (as opposed to Playboy Playmates or Penthouse Pets Of The Month - basically softcore) back then. Prettier than most young girls in hardcore back then in a wholesome girl next door way.

Yes, but do remember that Shauna was born in California, and only moved to Minnesota with her family when she was around 10.


I agree that she was one of the most beautiful porn stars ever (the most beautiful, in my opinion). When I first saw her on the cover of a magazine, I thought "surely she's not inside the magazine too", because at that time, pretty girls often appeared on the cover to rope in the buyer, but didn't appear inside. Imagine my delight when I saw that she was also inside the magazine, and in a very explicit set too. (I think it was her first "Velvet Talks" appearance as "Creamy Carla".)


Imagine my further excitement when I heard that she was in hardcore as well. She quickly became my favourite hardcore star ever, and remains so to this day.


I was devastated when I heard of her death. Rest in peace, Colleen.

To be sure, she was born in California. Her formative years, however, were spent in Minnesota.

She had some fairly serious emotional and psychological issues that had developed during her 8-odd years in Minnesota. In retrospect, it seems fairly easy to conclude that becoming involved in the adult film industry wasn't the best thing she could have done. I say it's easy to reach that conclusion because, really, does anyone honestly think becoming a porn actress is a wise choice? Outside of the money, there's not a whole lot of upside (or, put it this way, would anyone here feel a sense of happiness if they found out their little sister decided to make fuck films?).

It would take a woman who was really street smart and a survivor to make it through that environment and emerge fairly unscathed. Sadly, Shauna Grant wasn't too street smart, or self-aware. As well as was to be expected, because her upbringing wasn't such that it lent itself to giving her street smarts, and how many teenagers are self-aware? She made a tremendous amount of money for an unskilled girl in her late teens in a short time period, proceeded to snort virtually all of it away, quit porn and moved in with a coke dealer, and when that relationship ended she really didn't have many options left other than to return to the Minnesota community she came from (who, outside of her parents, wanted nothing to do with her) or go back to porn. I'm certainly not saying she did the right thing by killing herself, and nobody can say what the future would have held for her had she remained in the industry, but she obviously hot rock bottom. Think of all the other young girls doing porn during that same era who remained in the business: not many of them learned how to use the business to their advantage. For every one actress who did, thousands of others didn't. The odds were too long, and Grant couldn't beat them.

She WAS a beauty, though. However, if you watch footage of her at the 1984 adult film awards about a week before her death, she didn't look well.
