Profile Bio Text
Grey was born Marina Ann Hantzis, in North Highlands, California. She grew up in a working-class family, with her mother working for the state of California. Her parents divorced before she finished middle school, and her mother remarried in 2000 when Grey was 12. Grey states that she felt miserable at home around her step father, and as a result at 16, informed her mother she was going to move out. She describes her relationship with her mother as "somewhat estranged". Grey attended four high schools before graduating, unhappy in each one. In autumn 2005, she attended junior college and took classes in film, dance, and acting. Grey contemplated stripping during college so she wouldn`t have to work as much, but eventually settled on porn. She waited tables at a steak house through March 2006 and saved $7,000 for a move to Los Angeles.Porn career
In May 2006 Grey moved to Los Angeles and started her career in adult films just after turning 18. Originally she toyed with the name Anna Karina (after the French New Wave actress) before deciding on her present name. The name "Sasha" was taken from Sascha Konietzko of the band KMFDM, and "Grey" represents Oscar Wilde's novel The Picture of Dorian Gray and the Kinsey scale of sexuality. Her first scene was an orgy with Rocco Siffredi for The Fashionistas 2 by John Stagliano. When she was younger, prior to her video career, she dated a cook at the steak house where she worked, who introduced her to slapping and other kinds of consensual degradation during sex. Nearly six months after entering the adult industry, Grey was featured in the November 2006 edition of Los Angeles where she was flagged as a potential major star, perhaps the next Jenna Jameson.
Less than a year after entering the industry, in January 2007, Grey was the recipient of awards for "Best Three Way Sex Scene" and "Best Group Scene" at the AVN adult movie awards. She was also nominated as "Best New Starlet", but lost to Naomi. Grey was named Pet of The Month for July 2007 and was photographed by fashion photographer Terry Richardson. In 2008, she became the youngest person to win the AVN "Female Performer of the Year" award. That same year she won the award for "Best Oral Sex Scene" for a scene in which she performed oral sex on four men.
In December 2006, Grey was interviewed on the syndicated entertainment industry news show The Insider. In February 2007, she appeared on The Tyra Banks Show, discussing teenagers in the sex industry. Grey was profiled in the Rolling Stone "Hot Issue" for the December 2008 edition. And in April 2009 she made a highly publicized visit to Brandeis University for an interview with Los Angeles Times blogger Scott Feinberg followed by a Q&A with 300 students.
Grey represents herself in the adult industry through her own agency, L.A. Factory Girls. while The Spread Group manages her mainstream affairs. Since 2006, she has been developing an autobiographical documentary, illustrating her experiences from the age of 18 to 21. Grey has indicated particular appreciation for the work of Andrew Blake and Kimberly Kane.
A. O. Scott of The New York Times described her pornographic career as "distinguished both by the extremity of what she is willing to do and an unusual degree of intellectual seriousness about doing it."
After making her name in pornography, Grey has moved into other areas such as modeling.Grey was featured in the artwork for The Smashing Pumpkins 2007 album Zeitgeist, and appears in their music video "Superchrist". Grey was also featured in the music video for the song "Birthday Girl" by The Roots.
She has modeled for American Apparel and Richard Kern as a part of Vice magazine`s anti-fashion layout, and appeared in a three-part VBS program, "Shot by Kern". She also appeared in Taschen's 25th anniversary reprint of Terry Richardson's Terryworld. Among other collaborations with Richardson, she has also appeared in Wives, Wheels, Weapons, a companion book to James Frey`s Bright Shiny Morning. She has also modeled for artists James Jean, David Choe, Frï¿½dï¿½ric Poincelet, and Zak Smith.
Grey appeared in an episode of James Gunn`s PG Porn with James Gunn, as well as a cameo role in Dick Rude`s independent film Quit, and stars in  the upcoming Canadian low-budget black comedy/horror film Smash Cut from the Ottawa-based Odessa/Zed Filmworks. She plays a TV news personality who goes undercover as an actress in a horror film production, only to discover her older sister`s murderer.
Most prominently, she plays the lead, "Chelsea", in Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh`s film The Girlfriend Experience. Soderbergh cast her after reading an article pro

Personal Quotes (1)
I was born in Sacramento, CA, and moved to [Los Angeles] when I turned 18 to pursue a career as a porn star. I grew up in North Highlands [a section of Sacramento]. It is a disenfranchised, lower-to-middle-class neighborhood. I never allowed myself to be a negative product of that environment. I used it as a source of inspiration to challenge myself. I began college in August of 2005, balancing school and work seven days a week. Around this time I started thinking about pornography as a career opportunity. I have a huge appetite for sex and self-exploration. I wanted to express my sexuality as a strong woman, to push my own boundaries and see which part of my psyche would take me to my next euphoric sexual experience. I wanted to do all of this in a sex-positive way. Despite the controversy that surrounds this industry, I felt I could ultimately bring an enigmatic quality to it. I decided that if my instinct continued to push me toward the reality of this, and the dissatisfaction with my education continued, I would seize the opportunity on my own. I began my research that month, making my decision absolute in October 2005. On April 17th, 2006 I moved to [Los Angeles], got tested at AIM and found an agent. I performed my first sex scene on May 1st, 2006 in Fashionistas Safado: The Challenge (2006). Although I have come a long way since then, many people in society believe that I am a victim. I was not sexually abused. I am not on drugs. The acts I perform are always consensual. I am a woman who strongly believes in what she does--it is time that our society comes to grips with the fact that "normal" people, women especially, enjoy perverse sex. I hope to inspire people from all walks of life, and to collaborate with innovative individuals--bohemians welcome. Many people mistake this thought and believe that I desire all women to do porn and fuck like rabbits, ignoring all health risks. This is not what I preach or believe. Like any business, I take risks in my profession. Anyone considering porn as a career should be fully aware of these risks before jumping in. I am ready to take on any opportunities and challenges that face me as a woman, porn star and artist.
