Who is Misty Dawn?

Misty Dawn is the pseudonym of adult video performer Laurie Rose. Rose worked in pornographic films and videos, and she danced as an exotic dancer. She married pornographic actor John "Johnny Wadd" Holmes in 1987, and, after his death, she published his autobiography and appeared in several films about his life.

Holmes stopped making adult films in the early 1980s. According to Rose, "John thought one porn person in the family was enough. And the AIDS thing was just starting to come out. Nobody had gotten it yet; but it was still in the back of our minds. He thought, ‘Well, if I’m going to take a chance, that’s enough.'"

In 1998, she appeared in the documentary, Wadd: The Life & Times of John C. Holmes.

In 1999, Rose made a return to adult films after a 15-year retirement. She returned again in 2003 in the film Voyer Vision.
