Interview With Chanel Preston
Up And Coming Adult Film Star Chanel Preston
Do you come from a background of training in the arts?
Growing up I was always into the arts. I acted in local plays. I took acting classes and any art class I could when I was a kid. I was also very involved in music.
What music first captured your ear and got you interested in music?
To be honest there wasn't ever a time, when I first started, that I was captured by music. As a kid it was just something that came so easy to me and I never had to try that hard. Once I got older is when I really learned to appreciate and value the talent that I had. Although I played a lot of jazz it was always the classical music that caught my attention and made me love what I did.
You were on the high school wrestling team, what was that like?
I'm not sure what possessed me to join the wrestling team, but I'm always challenging myself. At the time I had never really challenged myself physically, so I think thats what I liked about it. There was only a couple of us girls on the team. In junior high that was okay, but once I played in high school, it was a little more difficult since you could tell the coach did not want girls on the team. At times I felt I had to prove myself more to show that I was serious about what I was doing and not just there as a joke.
Do you find that training comes in handy today?
I don't really utilize the knowledge anymore but it definitely gave me the confidence I needed to push myself to do other things.
How did you get started in adult entertainment?
I was traveling and stripping around the US and I came upon someone that asked me if I would be interested in getting into the industry. Initially I said no, but when I thought about it some more, I came back to her and said yes.
You recently worked with Kink.com what did you do there and what was the experience like?
I worked on the "fucking machines" site which was a lot of fun. It's definitely an experience to fuck a robot. I got crushes on a couple of them. I also recently worked on the "Whipped Ass" and “Everything Butt" sites. I had a lot of fun with all of them, and they are definitely different and challenging. The company is amazing though, and I love working for them.
How do fans of your more vanilla / mass appeal scenes react to scenes you do for fetish sites and vice versa?
I'm not really sure. I haven't had any negative comments, and I like to show people that I have fun doing all kinds of things.
What fetishes are you into?
I am just getting familiar with different fetishes, so I'm still exploring what I like. I definitely love to be dominated by men and I love ass play.
You've received NightMoves Magazine's Best New Starlet Award, what was your reaction to that announcement?
I was so honored and excited, especially since this is my first year in the industry. It gave me a lot of confidence to continue on my path and do my best. Now I'm nominated for AVN's Best New Starlet award in January.
What do you have planned for the future?
This year has been so crazy for me and I'm just expecting it to continue. The AVN Awards is probably what I am looking forward to most. In addition to having four nominations, I am one of the Trophy Girls, and I know it will be really exciting to be a part of it.
Do you think fetish is becoming part of the mainstream culture?
I definitely do. There are a lot of mainstream porn companies that will incorporate a little fetish stuff here and there and I think people are becoming much more open and accepting of it. I just did a movie called "Nylons 8" for Third Degree, which features me on the cover. It focuses on a nylon, panty hose and leg fetish, which is a bit milder than some of the stuff I've done. It helps ease people in, and I think anyone would enjoy it.
What's your favorite movie?
I'm assuming you mean my favorite non-porn movie, which is "Closer". It's one of the only movies I can watch over and over.
What do you like to do for fun?
I'm so busy with work, so I don't get a lot of extra time. I love to stay active, especially when I'm home in Hawaii. Hiking, swimming and simply going to the gym are what my day consists of. I'm also a big foodie, so I love to go with friends to eat.
