Traci Lords Cry Baby
Traci Lords in Cry Baby
Traci Lords stars as Wanda Woodward in John Waters’ new movie, Cry-Baby. Lords has been a porn star before breaking into mainstream film. She’s a fierce and tough woman in this film. The director is known for creating tough female characters and Lords’ character is no exception. The film is a dark comedy about a girl who grows up in a suburban home and makes trouble for her yuppie parents.
Lords was only sixteen years old when she started appearing in pornography, and she used a fake birth certificate and photo ID to avoid getting caught. Despite the legal trouble, Lords managed to reinvent herself as a model and actress, and she landed the role of Wanda in Cry-Baby. Although some casting directors and agents were wary of her past, she believed that she could shed her old identity and be successful.
