Savannah Actress

Shannon Wilsey, usually known as simply Savannah, (born October 9, 1970 - died July 11, 1994) was an American actress, starring in more than 100 pornographic films during her career.

Savannah was the perhaps the most high-profile porn star of her time. Although her career in the adult industry was short (1990 - 1994), she achieved notoriety both in and beyond the industry due to her on screen presence and her off screen life. One of the first contract girls in the adult industry, Savannah was, at various times, linked to a number of well known rock stars, including Gregg Allman, Billy Idol, Slash and Axl Rose. She was also linked to comedian Pauly Shore.

On July 11, 1994, at about 2 in the morning, she crashed her car and was injured. When she got home she shot herself in the head with a .45 Magnum revolver. She died after spending 11 hours in a coma. She was also reported to have financial and drug problems.
