Kagney Linn Karter grew up in the Midwest and before entering the adult industry was named a regional Déjà Vu Showgirl of the Year for 2007 while based out of North Hollywood, ultimately taking 2nd place in the national competition.
She began performing late in the summer of 2008 and made the cover of New Sensations' She's Got Boobs!, as well as the cover of the April '09 Hustler magazine with a photo set shot by Holly Randall. Kagney also landed the starring role as Kelly Bundy in X-Play/LFP's Not Married With Children XXX, after which director Will Ryder pronounced her "the next big thing."
That assesment proved prophetic when Kagney was crowned AVN's 2010 Best New Starlet. And literally just days beforehand, she signed an exclusive contract with Zero Tolerance Entertainment/Third Degree Films, for whom she's appeared in hit releases including Official Jersey Shore Parody, Kagney Linn Karter: Superhero Sex Therapist, Delinquents and Vajazzled.
Prior to going contract, Kagney headlined major titles for Digital Playground, Evil Angel, Jules Jordan Video, Hustler Video, Penthouse and more. In early 2011, she returned to a non-exclusive status with ZT, but still gave the company her very first anal and interracial scenes in the showcase vehicle All About Kagney Linn Karter.
