Looking Back: An Interview with Samantha Fox, Porn Star
She was appearing at the Lee to promote one of her films showing there. Part of my research for the story I wrote for the Extra section of the paper was to watch the film. I have no specific recollection of anything she said to me, nor do I remember any of the movie.
Difficult assignment, but then Features was never a place for the faint of heart.
The autograph, appropriately written with a red pen, reads, "Dear Dan, Thanks for the intelligent, mellow interview. Now what? Love, Samantha Fox."
Sam was really Stasia Therese Angela Micula, a Brit who was in about 100 porn movies between 1977 and 1984 and is in the porn hall of fame. I found her to be bright, energetic, playful, funny, outgoing and good company. From what I read of her later, she was an excellent business professional and a talented legitimate actress. She was not especially pretty, but had a thoroughly attractive air and apparently had a screen presence not unlike that of some big stars. I liked her.
This is the only autographed photo of anybody I ever asked for. Samantha kissed me when she handed the photo to me. I've haven't washed that spot on my cheek since.
