Blue, to whom a tribute was printed by her husband in Washington’s Kitsap Sun here (under her real name), died on July 19.
In April of last year I was sent a re-released copy of Max Hardcore’s Hollywood Hardcore 7, (originally filmed and released in 1999 when Blue was 18), and wondered who Blue was. The article I wrote sparked a lively debate concerning shady agents and vitaligo.
Someone claiming to be Anastasia Blue even wrote in, saying that she had left the business seven years ago to get off drugs and that she was living a peaceful life “on the water” in Washington (the obituary said she worked at a marine construction firm). It sounded true enough, and I decided not to pursue it. The comment was left in May of this year, two months before the woman formerly known as Anastasia Blue died.
On July 22, an anonymous poster (who earlier had confirmed Blue’s birthdate) wrote to say she had passed away three days before. No one responded to confirm, but later comments to that story backed up the anonymous poster’s assertion that she had died. “Not of natural causes,” one poster said. “Drugs” another said.
Seemingly to that end, the picture supplied with the obituary reveals a still-beautiful woman, Slavic in features, but the choice of picture seems like it might have been the best choice out of a poor group. It doesn’t seem to be a happy picture.
I have deliberately not associated Blue’s real name with this porn site, and her family requests that they be left alone. But Blue’s fans will miss the person her husband described as “a wild and free spirit with an intensity and zest that could never be tamed,” and we can close the book on wondering where she is.
The sleuthing was done by a young man who calls himself Serf Tewl who is a presence on many adult chatboards and who says he “has a knack for tracking down lost porn stars.” Indeed, he dug up photos of Blue when she was performing under her actual maiden name (this site publishes a few real names of established performers, so beware) and received initial confirmation under a strange quid pro quo agreement with a man named Killray.
