Tom Byron (born
April 4, 1961in Houston, Texas) is an American Pornographic Actorand director. He is of Italian descent. He is sometimes credited as Tom Byrom, Tommy Byron, The Icon, or The Great White Hope. A member of the XRCOcite news|title=XRCO Hall of Fame | url =http://www.bwdl.net/XRCO-2/hall.htm| accessdate = 2007-12-27 ] and the AVN Halls of Famecite news | title=AVN Hall of Fame | url =http://www.avnawards.com/index.php?content=halloffame | accessdate = 2007-12-27 ] , he is one of the most recognizable actors in the business.
When Byron first started acting in hardcore films, in May 1982,cite news | title=Tom Byron May 2000 interview | url =http://www.rogreviews.com/interviews/tom_byron.asp | accessdate = 2007-12-27 ] he played mostly the young schoolboy or "coming of age" roles due to the fact that he looked like a teenager even though he was in his early to mid 20s. He starred alongside
Traci Lordsin many movies including her first one in early 1984, " What Gets Me Hot!" He was also known to have had an ongoing relationship with Lords, who was underage at the time.
Has appeared in small uncredited "mainstream" motion picture roles, the most recent of which is a performance as a homeless man in Miracle Mile.
He has changed his image several times throughout his career, going from clean-shaven adolescent to hard rocker look (complete with long hair, tattoos and piercings) to clean cut businessman appearance. Unlike the majority of male porn stars, Byron apparently doesn't work out extensively and has never maintained a muscular physique, instead relying on his ability to perform consistently and his name recognition.Fact|date=January 2008
Since his return to performing in the fall of 2005, Byron has performed in numerous scenes, most notably his "House of Ass" series for his own company Evolution Erotica. Byron has also performed for other companies as well.
Byron has directed over 70 films, his most notable being the "Cumback Pussy" series for
Elegant Angel. Along with fellow directors Van Damageand Rob Black, and performer Tiffany Mynx, Byron left Elegant Angel in 1998 to form a new company, Extreme Associates.
IMDb lists 1400 movies but it is assumed that it must be more than 2,500
pornographic movies. His earliest video that can be dated with certainty is "Tuesday's Lover" from 1983. His most recent video is the 2006 "The Anal Life".
IAFDb lists 2137 movies acted in and 88 directed.
