Deep Throat Actor Harry Reems Dead At 65 From Cancer After Changing The Adult Film Industry

Deep Throat Actor Harry Reems Dead At 65 From Cancer After Changing The Adult Film Industry Forever

Harry Reems, the actor made famous from the porn film Deep Throat, has died today at the age of 65. According to E! News, the actor has reportedly been battling pancreatic cancer for some time now, but to no avail.

Reem’s wife Jeanne confirmed to the NYT times that her husband indeed passed away, and it’s not just a hoax as some people originally thought.

Reems has had an incredibly unique and interesting career, and in the light of his death, we look to some of the barriers he broke down in his career. Reems had always wanted to become an actor, but he tried to do that first through off-Broadway plays and other theater productions. When that didn’t exactly work out, he ended up being drawn into the porn industry.

And lucky he did – his film ‘Deep Throat’ changed the porn industry forever, and it ended up making a massive $600 million. The porn industry, which was previously the laughingstock of the entertainment world, changed into the billion-plus dollar industry it is today after the success of Deep Throat.

However, his own career took a downturn after the film came out, after he got embroiled in a legal battle for conspiring to ‘distribute obscenity’ across state lines. Keep in mind, the porn industry back in the heyday wasn’t considered a legitimate business, so trying to distribute porn was almost like trying to distribute crack.

Eventually, the case went away but Reems’ struggles continued, this time with alcohol. He did eventually sober up and get married, and live happily until his demise today, albeit out of the spotlight he seemingly craved early on in his career.

However, we haven’t yet seen the end of Harry Reems. The fictionalized portrayal of the making of Deep Throat is being brought to the silver screen in the form of the movie ‘Lovelace’, where Amanda Seyfried is portraying the leading lady and Adam Brody will be playing Reems himself.
