Kai Cruz – Former International Porn Actor
It’s an honour to be on the judging panel for the British Porn Awards this year – especially following in the footsteps of other international porn star judges like Dean Monroe. I started my career in porn when I was 20 and working in Bristol, doing my first shoot for English Lads and It all took off from there. Over the years I’ve worked for some great companies and some talented directors, all over the world! Since my last shoot for Young Bastards in Berlin in 2015 I’ve been taking a bit of a break and breeding pedigree dogs, but it’s good to be chosen as a judge this year – it’s a hard job watching all this amazing porn, but I’ll do my best.
