Performer/director John Leslie passed away yesterday, Dec. 5, from an apparent massive heart attack he suffered while at home. He was 65-years old.

Leslie began his performing career in 1973, in “Sensuous Delights,” and went on to perform in more than 300 movies. Perhaps his most well-known role was as the seductive lead in 1980?s “Talk Dirty to Me,” directed by Anthony Spinelli.

Later, he was one of the first performers to move into the director’s chair, with 1987?s “Nightshift Nurses.” When he passed away yesterday, Leslie was a long-standing member on the Evil Angel roster of directors, alongside good friend and performer/director Joey Silvera.

Suave and sophisticated, Leslie was a legend of the Golden Age of erotic film and a pioneer in the adult industry. He will be missed. – jc
