Vivid Signs Lanny Barby

Vivid Entertainment Group has signed Lanny Barby to an exclusive performance contract, making her the newest Vivid Girl.

Barby’s multi-year deal begins on April 1, Marci Hirsch, vice president of production for Vivid, told Monday. The green-eyed, French-Canadian stunner from Montreal is a former blue jeans model that has been performing periodically for over three years. Recently, she has become in more demand than perhaps ever before, as producers have had to book her services several weeks in advance.

“It’s great to have somebody with a different look. She’s beautiful,” Hirsch said. “She’s also very sweet and very nice, and she’s extremely sexual.”

Barby will begin filming her first Vivid feature for director Paul Thomas on April 22. She performed almost exclusively in wall-to-wall and gonzo productions until now, with over 50 videos on her resume for companies such as Anabolic, Diabolic, New Sensations, Devil’s Films, Zero Tolerance, Third Degree, Gina Lynn Productions/EXP Multimedia and Jules Jordan/Evil Angel, among others. She has also been a favorite of photographer/director Suze Randall, who was among the first to shoot her and has done so numerous times for both print and video.

Hirsch said that her current group of Vivid Girls, which includes Jenna Jameson, Tera Patrick, Savanna Samson, Briana Banks, Mercedez, Tawny Roberts, Monique Alexander and Lexie Marie, is one of her best ever.

“This is a great group. Everybody is pretty much in it for the same reasons,” Hirsch said. “They want to make great movies. They love what they do. It’s not a fight to get anybody on the set. They really enjoy sex and enjoy the movie-making process, and they’re really easy for me to deal with.”

Hirsch said that Barby would also be performing in the next volume of Vivid’s popular Where the Boys Aren’t series.

Barby was unavailable for comment at press time.
