Tricia Devereaux (AKA: Trica Devoroux, Tricia Devero, Tricia Deveraux, Trisha Devereaux) is one of the most interesting figures in porn – not on account of her stunningly beautiful physical features, but because of her journey inside the adult entertainment industry. Devereaux was born in a small town a couple of hours outside of Chicago on January 12, 1975, and she grew up under a strict upbringing and attended a private Catholic high school that didn't allow for a lot of personal expression. This buxom brunette
was a studious and highly intelligent student who would go on to attend college and attain a bachelor's degree in Biology in Missouri. She then attended one year of medical school, which is where her story takes a fascinating twist. Tricia's husband worked at a strip club
while she was putting herself through school, and naturally this got her thinking about showing her cans to the general public. The dancers at the club encouraged her to enter the amateur contest which she won, and Devereaux was soon a regular stripper at the establishment. The newlyweds sent off some photos to Hustler magazine for the amateur Beaver Hunt feature, and these helped land her a film gig in Los Angeles. Tricia started shooting adult films in 1995, and one of her first appearances was in Anabolic Video's Nasty Nymphos 11
where she starred alongside the stunning Rebecca Lord
. After Tricia had appeared in a number of films, she was promptly expelled from medical school after being accused of cheating on a test. Devereaux claims that the charge was bogus and due to her involvement in pornography. In 1998, Devereaux was tragically infected with HIV during a scene with Marc Wallice, which forced her to work as an award-winning editor. She was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame in 2011 due to her amazing performances in 126 titles.
