Gay Porn Star Cameron Fox Dead at 36
Gay porn star Cameron Fox, known for his work at Falcon Studios, died June 12. He was 36.
As Gay Star News reports, Fox, whose real name is Shane Eugene Davis, died last Thursday. A cause of death has not been reported.
According to Pink News, officials from Falcon Studio confirmed the actor's death in a Tweet Thursday:
"RIP Cameron Fox," the porn studio's official Twitter account wrote. Porn insiders also took to Twitter and confirmed Fox's passing.
Fox entered the gay porn industry in 1999 when he was 22. Hailing from Texas, he started his career as a Falcon Studios model but left the industry in 2006 after appearing in nearly 50 adult films. As Queerty points out, the actor "quickly became known for his performance and endowment, racking up at least two awards before leaving the industry." In 2001 he won an AVN Best Group Scene award for the Falcon film "Out of Athens."
"I never once felt as though Cameron was phoning in a performance," a gay porn reviewer for the blog Chronicles of Pornia wrote of Fox. "He was virile, engaged and present at all times. He gave more than 100% to his action scenes. Fox knew how to give his partners and his fans what they wanted to see. The mark of a real porn star.
