Magdalene St. Michaels is a critically acclaimed adult film star, mainstream actress, director and producer who has been performing in porn since 2007. Famous for her Girlfriends Films and Mile High Media movies, Magdalene continues to attract an avid international fan following as well as receiving numerous “MILF Performer of the Year” and “Best Actress – All-Girl Release” nominations at the AVN and XBIZ Awards.
So where did it all begin? Born in Malta but raised in England, Magdalene is a natural born performer who pursued singing, acting and dancing as a child. Talking about these early years in , Magdalene recounted how;
“I started off in school, doing school plays and musicals. We did Oliver!, and I was in that in school. Locally, in my small town in England, there was a melodramatic theater company. It was very good, actually. Everything they did was pretty much musicals, and my first musical for them was South Pacific. I played the young girl in that, so I got to sing and dance. I did about 4 or 5 in my town. I played Hodel in Fiddler On The Roof. That was actually (laughing) my first experience in trying to get functional. It’s kind of a fine line. It’s one of the major parts, and there was a scene where I was saying goodbye to my father at a train station. I was like, “How do I get emotional about this? How do I get emotional?”. This was before my days of studying acting while I was in Los Angeles. I remember getting an onion and going backstage, trying to peel this onion to get emotional. It worked to a point where I actually had tears in my eyes when I went out to sing. I love to dance. It’s within me. I never studied professionally to dance. My mother, actually, was a professional dancer until she got married. From the age of 3 until 16, when she left home, and 18, when she met my dad and settled down, she danced professionally, and HER mother was an opera singer. She performed stuff like Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates Of Penzance, and HER father played the piano. From my mother’s side, I inherited those things. I love to sing, but I’m a nervous singer. I love to sing, and I love acting as well”.
Magdalene St. Michaels : Mainstream Acting Career
Magdalene moved to the United States when she was in her early 20s and pursued a mainstream acting career. In fact, Magdalene joined SAG (Screen Actors Guild) in 1984 and has appeared in many mainstream movies and TV shows including The Love Boat, Dynasty and Dallas but to name a few! As Magdalene explained in ;
“I did a lot of work in movies and television in the 80s. Around 1982, I joined what was at the time called the Screen Extras Guild, which was for extras and stand-ins. It was kind of a big deal. It was so hard to get into…At that time, there were only two or three casting companies that provided extras. Once I got my foot in the door and joined that union, it was great…I got a few visible roles with those in the 80s. Some of the things that came my way at the time were just the result of being in the right place at the right time. I started acting lessons with a really great teacher who has since passed away. His name was Anthony Ponzini, and the method that I studied was the Sandford Meisner technique. In the mid-80s I did work in just about every episodic from The Love Boat to Dynasty to Dallas…
I appeared in movies like Body Double with Melanie Griffith. I had a lot of fun, even though I worked long hours. I learned a lot from talking to actors. It was a good time…There were another couple of movies I did. One was called Vasectomy: A Delicate Matter (laughing), which was around 1986. I met Paul Sorvino, Mira Sorvino’s dad, and he was a good friend of the guy I was with in the 80s. He was in that movie, and I was given a line or two in that. There was another movie I did, the follow-up to Fast Times At Ridgemont High called The Wild Life. That is how I got into the Screen Actors Guild in 1984. I was “upgraded” on set. I played a customer in a department store. I also did some stand-in work. I stood in for Daryl Hannah and Sean Young in Wall Street when filming on Long Island. Besides those mainstream parts, I’ve done theater here in L.A and British pantomimes, which aren’t miming. They’re more farcical with singing and dancing. Pantomime is very British. The boy is actually played by a woman. It’s a long-standing tradition in England that the leading lady is actually the principle boy, the hero, dressed like an Errol Flynn-type character with the hat and the feathers, fishnet tights and boots above the knees. They’re swashbuckling types, and they have a princess who actually IS a girl, while the dame is played by a man in a skirt or dress. There’s a lot of cross-playing in those plays. As previously mentioned, I’ve done theater. I’ve done a bit of everything”.
During this time Magdalene appeared in the action/drama feature film Turk 182 (1985) starring Timothy Hutton, Kim Cattrall and Robert Urich. Magdalene divulged during how;
“I was told they needed several reporters at the stadium where they had a scene. I remember they said you’re going to have this line. I had this line, but I’m not sure if it made the cut because, quite often, people who have really made it now, in the beginning will have a line or two and it’ll end up on the editing room floor. I think you can see me in the movie still, but I do remember being around Robert Urich, who was really, really nice. I remember speaking with Kim Cattrall, who’s actually originally from England. Timothy Hutton was a nice guy, too. I remember briefly talking to him. It was a hot Summer. I can’t remember if it was in Queens or in Manhattan or someplace else that we shot those scenes, but it was interesting”.
You may also recognize Magdalene from her role in the Steven Seagal action-packed thriller Executive Decision (1996). Magdalene has mentioned in that;
“It was another one of those things where they needed someone who had an English accent and the director chose me from my picture & resume.. At that point, I’d been in the country since 1980, so my English accent was with me, even though it was Americanized. I remember an ex of mine said, “You don’t sound English anymore. Why do it?”. I said “It’s a couple of lines. I can do it” and I did. I went down to Long Beach for the scene in the restaurant, where a terrorist comes in and sets off a bomb. The scene was supposed to take place in London, but they filmed it here. The director was really nice. He said, “Okay. You do this. You do that. There’s going to be a Steadicam”. I actually didn’t see any of the lead actors on the set that day… I did, however, attend the premiere of the movie. I made a call to Warner Brothers, said I was in the movie, and got to attend the premiere at Westwood. I think I spoke to Kurt Russell briefly. I don’t know if I saw Seagal, but I’ve heard that all along”.
Wondering how Magdalene progressed from mainstream acting to performing in porn? Well, as fate would have it, Magdalene attended the 2007 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was here that Magdalene stumbled upon the Girlfriends Films booth and met owner Dan O’Connell. Captivated by Magdalene, Dan asked if she would consider filming for Girlfriends Films. Before you know it, Magdalene was booked to shoot her adult film industry debut! Dan O’Connell reminisced on this fateful meeting during , revealing that;
“I was…lamenting that I hadn’t met the much-needed MILF I’d hoped to find at the show…Then, all of a sudden, I looked up and there she was! She looked like the perfect sexy MILF and I soon saw that she was a class act, much like Kay Parker. Maggie is full of energy, is a lot of fun to be around, is reliable, is a great performer, an accomplished actress, and loves women. It takes all that to be a great porn star…
I love working with Maggie because she has great acting skills and I can play her in a variety of parts. She is one of the few performers to get her own Girlfriends Films series, Imperfect Angels, which is perhaps our best series ever in regard to acting and story line. We always know we’re going to get a terrific scene out of her. Her first film for Girlfriends Films, I Like to Kiss, which has just three actresses in it, still remains my very favorite GFF movie of all time”.
Magdalene St. Michaels : Adult Film Career
Magdalene filmed her first ever sex scenes in 2007 with Lena Nicole and Zoe Britton for the Girlfriends Films movie (2007). This role was actually written exclusively for Magdalene by Girlfriends Films owner Dan O’Connell. Magdalene discussed shooting her porn debut in , divulging that;
“I believe in things happening for a reason and I believe that the universe has a plan for you and you don’t know it. Sometimes you’re put into places you’re meant to be at that time…It was a movie where I was in every scene. It was shot in order, the way it appeared in the movie, which doesn’t always happen that way. I’m more nervous with the mainstream stuff because I’m a perfectionist. It stems from that, that I want to get it right…
We started the scene and it just came so naturally to me. It was just so beautifully done. I did my thing. I did what I think most women want to see, foreplay and lots of kissing and not being rough and I loved the aspects of sensuality and being erotic. We did the scene and at the end I remember saying “Oh, wow. I got through my first scene”. The camera woman said, “That was the first scene you’ve ever done?”. I said, “Yes” and she said, “Oh, wow”. Dan was very excited and he called a friend and said, “The scene was amazing”. I came home and I was really happy. I said, “This is my thing. I’m a natural at this”. It was just a weird chain of events that led to this. I kind of have to say this…It just changed my life so much. I cannot tell you how good it was for me and then to apply my acting to these roles was great”.
From this point onwards Magdalene started to shoot as an exclusively solo and girl/girl performer for Girlfriends Films. We recommend checking out Magdalene’s sultry scenes with Bobbi Starr and Faye Reagan in (2008), her kinky group sex scene with Aiden Starr, Avy Scott, KC Kelly, Lilly Lovely and Nicole Moore in (2009), her saucy shoot with Sophie Dee in (2011) which was nominated for “Best Older Woman/Younger Girl Release” at the 2012 AVN Awards and her steamy scene with Riley Reid in (2012) which has since been showcased in the compilation title (2017).
Hold on, there’s even more! In recent years Magdalene has shared a scintillating scene with Sovereign Syre in (2014), she filmed a raunchy scene with Alex Chance for (2014) that was nominated for “Best Taboo Relations Movie” at the 2015 AVN Awards and she shared a sensational scene with Samantha Ryan in (2015) that has recently been featured in (2018). Magdalene has loved shooting these sensual girl/girl scenes and conveyed in how;
“Women are beautiful, pure and simple. They are soft, curvy….the hair…the skin. Women are like delicate flowers that need to be made love to, not man handled (pardon the pun)…I think a woman understands what another woman wants because we want the same thing. As a woman, I want to be made love to. I love the romance, the candles, the romantic baths the soft touch, the holding of my face while I’m being kissed, the running of fingers gently through my hair & LOTS of kissing. I think you get the picture and let’s not overlook the fact that I love, did I say love breasts……the bigger and more natural, the better. It doesn’t hurt if the girl/woman has a bush either [she says, with a wicked grin on her face]”.
Want to know the best part? Alongside her best-selling Girlfriends Films DVDs, Magdalene has collaborated with award-winning director Dana Vespoli on a wealth of critically acclaimed Sweetheart Video movies. Some of Magdalene’s fan-favorite Dana Vespoli collaborations include (2010-2011), (2012) within which she shared a saucy scene with Misty Stone, (2013) that was nominated for “Best Older Woman/Younger Girl Release” at the 2014 AVN Awards, (2015) that showcased Magdalene in a saucy scene with fellow British babe Samantha Bentley and (2016) within which Magdalene shared a steamy scene with Sarah Vandella. Magdalene has loved collaborating on these Sweetheart Video/Mile High Media movies, highlighting in how;
“Mile High Media makes the kind of movies that I want to be involved in. I’m the kind of performer who loves a story line and I not only take the sex scene seriously, but the acting part of it as well…Although I am in porn, I don’t like to do the “hello mam…here’s your pizza” kind of scene with ridiculous and unnatural sex positions. I would say half of my Boy/Girl scenes have been those type of scenes, but I prefer to do the more romantic ones. I want to film the “making love” type scenes that are more realistic and where there is a connection between me and my partner. That is what Mile High Media’s studios “Sweetheart Video” & “Sweet Sinner Films” are known for and that’s why I love working for them…
I go into a scene with three objectives. Firstly, to make love to my partner, to do everything I can think of to please her and give her, hopefully, an amazing orgasm. Secondly, to let myself get lost in the scene and have a great time myself. Thirdly, I think of the viewer who will be watching the scene. What turns them on? What would they like to see? I make love to my partner the way I would want someone to make love to me. You can’t plan chemistry. It is like real life. Some people you have chemistry with and some you don’t. It’s the same with performers. You don’t have chemistry with everyone you shoot with. You don’t decide who you get to have sex with on film and most of the time you’ve never even met the person before. Sometimes you have to work at it but when it does happen on film it’s magical and I think the viewer senses it”.
Magdalene St. Michaels : Popular Porn Productions & Award Nominations
A landmark moment in Magdalene’s adult film career occurred in 2011 when she was cast in Nica Noelle’s Sweet Sinner film (2011). Magdalene shared a sizzling scene with Joey Brass and the movie was nominated for “Best Adult Film” at the 2011 Virtual Awards as well as “Feature Movie of the Year” and “Couples-Themed Release of the Year” at the 2012 XBIZ Awards. Magdalene also received ardent endorsements from prominent porn critics such as who stated in his January 2011 film review that;
“Even though Joey Brass is the main star of this film, the person who has the most memorable acting performance is Magdalene St. Michaels. Her temptress character with no endearing qualities is one of her best roles in her career and she acts it out with ease and believability. As to the sexual performances, the Angelina Armani-Johnny Castle lovemaking scene is the most sensually romantic whereas the Zoe Voss-Joey Brass one is the most heated and intense. The non-sex roles are also very effective to the storyline too with the appearances of Veronica Hart and Jay Crew as Joey’s parents. There will be very good replay value. I highly recommend this film to couples everywhere”.
Magdalene enjoyed tackling this raunchy Sweet Sinner role and recounted in how;
“Nica Noelle wrote the part with me specifically in mind and it was her version of “The Graduate” so yes, I was very excited about getting this role because it was “right up my alley” & by that I mean something I can sink my teeth into…I didn’t have any say in who my partner would be in the film because she chose Joey Brass to play the Dustin Hoffman type character and it was perfect casting. I loved playing my character…
I don’t think many people know that I come from a mainstream background. I have appeared in several films and I’ve been a member of the Screen Actors Guild for 30 years now. I take the acting part very seriously ( even though its porn ) and that’s why I love doing features. My character was a smoker and a drinker. I had been a one pack of cigarettes a week smoker and I quit in 2000…However, for this role I had to light up cigarettes for the character, so that’s what I did. I wanted to make the character believable. It was a lot of fun to be her”.
You’ll be happy to hear that Magdalene has continued to collaborate with Nica Noelle on several sensational Sweet Sinner, Sweetheart Video and Girl Candy movies. Our top picks? They’d have to be (2011), (2012) which earned Magdalene a “Best Actress – All-Girl Release” nomination at the 2014 XBIZ Awards, (2012) that was nominated for “Best Older Woman/Younger Girl Release” at the 2013 AVN Awards and (2013) which was nominated for “Best Older Woman/Younger Girl Release” at the 2014 AVN Awards.
Another definitive moment in Magdalene’s adult film career occurred in 2015 when she was cast in Nica Noelle’s TransSensual Studios movie (2015) alongside Chelsea Poe, Sunday Valentina and Rob Yaeger. My TS Student was Magdalene’s first TS movie and it was nominated for “Best Transsexual Release” at the 2015 Nightmoves Awards. Magdalene was keen to shoot My TS Student and mentioned in that;
“For me it was important because … from what I have heard there’s not too many women willing to do TS scenes. It was not only important for me to experience that as a person but it was important for me to get that out there to the world. People get stigmatized and it’s not a big deal to me, someone’s sexuality. By me doing this I’m hoping I’ll get other performers to do it…
I think it needs to be accepted more and so I’m hoping by me doing it as a performer and as an individual person, and even with this interview, it will get others to think about it in another light. I see past the physicality of someone. I see their energy and their essence and their being and their soul as who they are as a person. People need to be who they are and I’m hoping by me doing it, it will have some impact”.
In fact, Magdalene received high praise from director Nica Noelle who eagerly expressed in how;
“Magdalene did a brilliant job in this movie and it was an honor to shoot her first TS scene…It was clearly a very emotional moment for her to finally realize her dream to shoot with a TS woman and her scene with Chelsea Poe is really something special.”
Magdalene’s performance in My TS Student was also praised by her co-star Chelsea Poe who stated within that;
“I had a great time shooting with Magdalene…Our scene was a girl/girl scene where the things we did in the scene would be something you would see in any girl/girl film. I am thankful that Nica wanted to show how I have lesbian sex which is [rarely] shown in mainstream trans porn, and really fits the trans-positive vibe of the series. It was really great for me as a new performer to work with someone who has a history of shooting girl/girl porn and I think it is by far my most sensual scene I was ever involved in”.

This social media tournament started off with 64 porn star pairings and fans voted for their favorite pairs via Twitter, Facebook and email.
Magdalene and Giovanni represented Mile High Media’s Sweet Sinner region and made it into the Final Foreplay round. In this final round Magdalene and Giovanni emerged triumphant against fellow porn star pairings Lily Cade and Nina Hartley (Sweetheart Video region), Natasha Starr and Sean Michaels (Reality Junkies region) and Angell Summers and Keni Styles (Sweet Sinema region). Magdalene was thrilled to win this Mile High Madness social media tournament and enthusiastically stated in that;
“Thank you. I’m ecstatic about this win. To think that I beat out fellow performers with 22,000, 80,000, 100,000 and 110,000 followers on Twitter alone, is amazing. In the beginning I didn’t think I’d stand a chance because I only had around 10,800 followers and Giovanni had about 250. However, I began to see that I could really win this thing because of the loyalty of my fans and they didn’t let me down. They came out swinging. I believe that I have the most loyal & devoted fans in the world and I have told them that many times over. They come from all parts of the globe and I love them all. If it were possible to meet every single one of them in person, I would. They really mean the world to me”.
Magdalene St. Michaels : Directorial Debut
Magdalene is a multi-talented performer, director and producer who made her directorial debut in 2014 with Stranded – a self-produced aviation-themed movie that she released via MagdaleneVOD.com. Talking about shooting her directorial debut in , Magdalene divulged that;
“What I’m doing right now is I’m starting to shoot my own movies…I did a scene with Ela Darling, then I did Stranded 2 with Natasha Starr. Part three has Syren De Mer and Blair Summers, and there’s going to be another older/younger, then we’re going to make a DVD out of it. So that’s what I’m focusing on right now”.
Stranded was released in two parts – the first in 2014 with Ela Darling and the second in 2015 with Natasha Starr. Magdalene has received high praise for her directing skills from her Stranded co-stars Natasha Starr and Ela Darling. In fact, Natasha stated in that;
“I loved working with her…She was so professional. It is a great scene; we clicked right away and had great chemistry together. I’m looking forward to working with her again”.
Ela Darling also highlighted in how much she enjoyed;
“Watching an artist at work. She doesn’t spare passion when it comes to capturing the story she wants to tell. She knows nuances and details about her characters inside and out and when she performs, it’s easy to get lost in the experience. She’s dedicated, professional, and creatively complex. It’s inspiring”.
Magdalene has directed several films through her own production company Offworld. And yes, the name was inspired by Blade Runner! In fact, Magdalene mentioned in that;
“(Laughing) Yes, that’s where it’s from. That was the production company we started. Very good. (Laughing) That was another great movie. Harrison Ford would have to be my favorite actor hands-down. I mean, there’s a lot of favorite actors I can name, but if someone were to ask which movie star would you ever date, I’d pick Harrison Ford”.
Alongside her acting roles and directorial projects, Magdalene is an ardent LGBTQ+ advocate who continues to collaborate on various fundraising and awareness campaigns. Magdalene is also an avid supporter of suicide prevention charities and has shared her own personal experiences with depression in a September 2018 AVN article titled . As Magdalene puts it in her own words;
“Don’t suffer in silence. GO TO A DOCTOR. Talk to your family, husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, partners and friends. Reach out to someone. Don’t be afraid. Find a support group and make a note of the Suicide Hotline. Write that number down in large letters and put it somewhere that’s visible … like the refrigerator…
Let us be respectful of one another. Let us be considerate toward each other. Let us all have open minds. Let us have empathy for and be compassionate toward one another. Let us be kind to one another. Life is short. This life we live, this journey of life, is not an easy one. We all need each other more than we know. Love one another. In the end, that’s all that really matters”.
