The actress Raven De La Croix was born on August 24th, 1947 as Lynn Christie Martin in New York City. She was discovered working at a club in Los Angeles by the director Russ Meyer, and she began appearing in various films without any acting experience.
Born to a lower-class family in New York, she worked first as a nurse and then as a waitress. She broke into the acting scene, appearing in risqué roles in low-budget films in Hollywood, and became somewhat of a scream queen. She was at one point engaged to the wrestler Greg “The Hammer” Valentine.
