— 20-Year-Old Porn Star Found Dead In LAS VEGAS
— Latest in string of deaths to rock adult industry
Adult film actress Olivia Nova was found dead in Las Vegas on Sunday. Her passing marks the third death of an adult film actress in two months.
WHO IS OLIVIA NOVA?
Olivia Nova is an adult film actress who was originally from Minnesota. She launched her career in March 2017, and was considered to be rising in the adult film industry.
She was only 20 years old at the time she died.
Before entering the porn industry, Nova was a child model; she booked her first job at the age of 12. During a September interview with photographer Dave Naz, Nova said that her interest in porn began after she was approached by an adult film agent in early 2017. “I don’t exactly know what attracted me to [pornographic] modeling,” Nova said. “I was actually scouted one day. A woman just gave me her card, and then I was kinda just rushed into the industry.”
Confirming her death, LA Direct Models, her agency, released a statement on Monday:
“While only represented by Direct Models for a short period of time, we came to know Olivia as a beautiful girl with a very sweet and gentle personality,” the statement read. “Another one, way too young. We are beyond shocked…Rest in peace, sweet angel.”
