Erica Boyer – Nickname
The Ultimate Goddess of Erotica
Lovely and slender brunette stunner Erica Boyer was born Amanda Margaret Gannt on December 22, 1956 in Andalusia, Alabama. Her father Joseph Breckenridge Gannt was a former attorney for the state of Alabama. Erica was raised in a strict household and was raped in her early teens by a boy she trusted. Boyer appeared in her first hardcore movie in 1974. She moved to San Francisco, California in the late 70s and worked as a dancer at the O’Farrell Theater. Erica caught the attention of Marilyn Chambers, who encouraged Erica to be in her next picture. Boyer’s adult film career subsequently took off after this; she did well over one hundred and fifty movies within a twenty-five year time span. Erica specialized in lesbian scenes and received a XRCO Award for Lascivious Lesbian Scene at the first annual XRCO Awards show in 1985. Boyer took a hiatus from the adult film industry in 1994, but made a regrettably briefly comeback in the late 90s prior to retiring from the adult film industry on a permanent basis and settling down in Panama City Beach, Florida. She was inducted into both the AVN and XRCO Hall of Fame. Moreover, Erica was married twice and was the mother of a son, Davis. Boyer’s life came to a tragic abrupt end when she was struck and killed by an off-duty Florida Highway Patrol Officer driving a 2001 four-door Hyundai on December 31, 2009 in Panama City Beach, Florida; she was only 53 years old.
