John Leslie, John Leslie, the multi-award winning actor and director, died Sunday of an apparent heart attack at his home in Marin County. He was 65 years old.

Leslie began her film career in the mid 1970′s, and had his first major role in the production of the Mitchell brothers Autobiography of a Flea (1976), where he shared duties as legendary stars as Annette Haven, Jean Jennings, John Holmes and Paul Thomas.

Hdcr Leslie continued to serve until the late 80′s hdcr scene even tried a few after-especially one with the star of her film, Naomi … There is only one, in 2006 and had several non-sexual roles thereafter. In 1988, however, had turned his attention to the direction of one of the first artists to do-the creation of 27 films for VCA Pictures and later about 100 for his own production company, Productions John Leslie, all of which were distributed by Evil Angel Productions.

During his career, Leslie has received 10 awards for acting and directing of the AVN, and several others of the X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO), the Adult Film Association of America (AFAA) and the Adult Film Association of California (CAFA), and was inducted into the AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame and the Legends of Ertca.

When not engaged in the production of adult films, Leslie was a prolific painter and photographer, and a blues musician out after playing blues harmonica and has been vocalist for the band The Brooklyn Blues Busters. It was also well known in adult circles as a gourmet chef.

“John was one of the very, very, very few that I looked up with something to teach me,” said another actor-turned-director Paul Thomas, who worked for the first time in 1977 with Leslie’s Baby Face. “It was the best prnographer, the best ertc film director first things he did, the gonzo first he did in Evil Angel and films made by AVC, were just the best. And as an actor, I think it was we had better, adding intelligence and darkness of his work, was not only an artist in many ways, from painting your kitchen to your movie. ”

However, when it was suggested that Leslie was a “good guy,” Thomas bristles.

Could be diverted, could be bad, he did what he had to do to get what he wanted. But he was much more than a good guy. It was an exceptional artist. ”

Actors who worked with Leslie “back in the day” certainly shares that view.

“Oh, my God, no!” “Said Randy Spears, the first time reported the death of Leslie.”John was my mentor. He is the guy I looked up before I got into this business. I said, I want to be John Leslie. Oh, man, that’s sad. God Rest his soul.”

All who knew him Miss Leslie intensity?

“I’ve been very, very sad,” said Thomas. “I was expecting to see John in Las Vegas.” [His death] makes it a staff of little more than an era has passed. We’ve all had the feeling that the business is definitely changing, and it is not possible, I think the most poignant statement I could make, I’ve been sitting here, being one of the few filmmakers in the business that still wants to tell a story and make a movie. I’ve been thinking, obviously, if my time has passed, and the death of John in some way seems to put a point at which, a time that has passed. ”

“He died at a young age, and so unexpected, an embarrassment,” said Hampshire. “John was just a great person in general. A great director, great actor, and a great person we loved him.”

Although no memorial service for Leslie has been set, AVN has learned that his body will be cremated. again for details of what the funeral will take place.
