August Ames

 

 

Age: 23

 

Summary: Canadian pornographic actress and model who was a two-time AVN Award-winner with more than 270 credits since her debut in 2013, whose body of work included multiple performances for just about every major studio in adult entertainment and was sought after from the beginning of her career, who earned a nomination in 2015 for AVN Best New Starlet and was a nominee every year since for Female Performer of the Year, including this year for the upcoming 2018 AVN Awards, and who was at the center of controversy within the industry stemming from a tweet saying she was canceling her booking to perform in a pornographic movie because her scene partner had previously worked in gay porn, in which her decision was considered by many critics as "homophobic" and sparked an "online firestorm" following successive tweets.
