Bobby Astyr's Porn Star Biography

A Star Is Born

Classic actor Bobby Astyr grew up in New York in the 40s and 50s. His was a conservative Jewish upbringing that never prepared him for the life he would one day have working in the adult film industry. Prior to appearing in XXX movies, Astyr was a musician, a struggling musician. He made his film debut in 1974 and worked in the industry for a decade before retiring. A well liked performer, Astyr was able to work with some of the best production companies of the time, such as Caballero Home Video, VCA, Metro, CDI Home Video, and many more. While he never became quite as popular as porn legends John Holmes or Jamie Gillis, Astyr made a name for himself by being genial, professional, and a talented actor. He is easily one of the more recognizable actors from the golden age of porn.

A Funny Man's Notable Films

Besides being known for being an all around good guy, Astyr also became known for his sense of humor. Nicknamed the "Clown Prince of Porn" due to his on-screen antics, Astyr wasn't afraid to look foolish to get a laugh. He is remembered for his performance in Barbara Broadcast as the goofy maitre d'. His sense of humor also came across loud and clear when he played a swashbuckling pirate in the 1977 film Captain Lust. Astyr appeared in more than 140 films over the course of his career, and likely many more loops that are just waiting to be rediscovered. Other notable films for Astyr include Amazing Dr. Jekyll (Video-X-Pix), Babes in Joyland (Command Video), Double Your Pleasure (Metro), and Hot Child in the City (VCX).

Love in Porn

In 1978, Astry met fellow porn star Samantha Fox. The two quickly fell in love and continued in a long term relationship for almost 24 years. They shared side-by-side apartments in New York City and were very devoted to one another to the end; Bobby Astyr lost his fight with a long term illness and passed away in 2002, Samantha Fox at his side. He was a good man who always did his best to help those around him. Astyr considered himself a "mensch," someone who tried to help his fellow performers with their various personal issues. "If I'm in a cesspool, I may as well be nice in the cesspool. When I first got into the business, I felt the least I could do was to get the dopers off dope and to help where I could. I thought that I'm doing something wrong, so while I'm doing it, I'll also do something nice. Selective morality."
