Linda Wong (September 13, 1951 – December 7, 1987) was an American pornographic actress[1] and one of the first Asians to become a star in the adult film industry.[2] In 1999, she was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame.[3]

Career

Wong, a former homecoming queen,[4] first broke into the adult film business in 1976 with Oriental Babysitter and The Jade Pussycat, in which she co-starred with Georgina Spelvin and John Holmes. According to Playboy's October 1977 pictorial "Ladies of Joy" and Playboy's 1980 Girls of Playboy 4, she worked as a legal prostitute in Las Vegas[5] for a short time under the name "Linda Ching".

In 1981, she decided to retire.[5] She returned four years later[5] to star in The Erotic World of Linda Wong. She was planning yet another comeback in 1987 when she died of a drug overdose.[4][5]
