Veteran of 2000 Scenes and Directing Nearly 200, He Joins Exclusive Club
VENICE, CA – Since entering the adult business in 1998, Mark Wood has performed in more than 2000 scenes, directed nearly 200 others and is now known as one of the hardest working and most dependable performers in the adult business.
That’s why it’s little surprise that AVN has chosen to induct him into the Hall of Fame at its show in January in Las Vegas.
“This was certainly the furthest thing from my mind when I first entered the business,” the low-key star said. “I spent months in Jim South’s office sitting on the couch waiting for my time to come. It wasn’t an easy start, but once the ball got rolling, things have continued to improve over the years. I’m very happy with my decision.”
Over the years he has performed for just about every company in the business and directed for Red Light District, Juicy Entertainment, Visual Images, Devil’s Film and several others. He has also produced movies for his own company, NxTLvL, as well as the company he and wife (and fellow AVN Hall of Famer) Francesca Lé, LéWood.
“Between performing, directing, producing, booking and all the rest of it, I haven’t even had time to think about awards,” Mark said. “It’ll be nice to take a moment one day soon and reflect on it. It really is a fantastic honor. Plus now Francesca can quit boasting about being in the Hall and making fun of me for not making it in!”
He also has several titles/lines he directed up for awards:
Best Ethnic-Themed Release – Latin: Young Tight Latinas 17
Best Ethnic-Themed Series – Latin: Young Tight Latinas (Red Light District)
Best Young Girl Release: Don’t Let Daddy Know 7 (Red Light District)
