Barbara Dare (born February 27, 1963) is the stage name of an American former pornographic actress. She was one of the industry's initial contract performers with Vivid Entertainment,[2] and is an AVN and XRCO Hall of Fame inductee.

Career[edit]

Dare began appearing in adult films in the mid-80's and also made appearances in magazines such as Hustler, Swank, and High Society. In 1989, she joined fellow adult film actress Stephanie Swift as authors of a monthly article for Swank.[3]

Dare was one of the top adult film stars of the 80s.[4] She appeared in scenes with several (at the time) top adult films stars, including Tracey Adams and Ginger Lynn.[5] She became one of the first women in the industry to sign an exclusivity contract with a studio and would later leave that studio to sign with Vivid Entertainment and become one of the earliest Vivid Girls.[6]

Dare appeared in her last film in 1994.[1] She continues to appear in new releases via compilation videos of archived footage and the use of previously unreleased video.[7][8][9]

Appearances[edit]

Dare was interviewed in 1987 for the episode of the television news series Frontline regarding the death of Shauna Grant.[10]

She also had minor roles in mainstream productions such as the Roy Scheider and Ann-Margret film 52 Pick-Up in 1986[11] and the live-action/animated Comedy-Horror B-movie Evil Toons[12] in 1992.
