Born Linda Ann Hopkins Shapiro on July 25, 1976 in Great Falls, Montana, pornstar Tera Patrick's exotic Thai and English good looks make her one of the most popular adult movie stars today. Discovered by the elite Ford Modeling Agency at the age of 13, Tera (aka Tara Patrick and Terra Patrick) began appearing in nude and softcore films in the late 1990s (including bondage and foot fetish under the name Brooke Thomas). In the year 2000, Tera made the jump to hardcore porn in Andrew Blake's Aroused. A Playboy model and Penthouse "Pet of the Month," Tera's voluptuous 36DD-24-34 figure is a knockout on her 5'9" frame. Tera has won numerous honors for her film work including the AVN Award for Best New Starlet in 2000, and was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2009. In her 2010 book Sinner Takes All, Tera details her life and career so far, as well as her plans for the future.
