Legendary Director/Performer/Author Blue Blake Passes

LONDON—One of the most famous gay adult actors of all time, Blue Blake, passed away over the weekend here, though at press time, the cause of his death was not available. He was 52. Born in the U.K., Blake appeared in 66 movies for such studios as All Worlds, Rawhide Entertainment, Stallion Video, HIS, Colt, Leisure Time Entertainment, and eventually his own company, Big Blue Productions, which he formed in 2000, and for which he directed 24 features. "Blue Blake and his brother Gage began their careers in the adult film industry as Colt models," according to his profile on AVN.com. "Together, they made their debut performances in The Blake Twins: Raw And Uncut. Afterwards, The Tom of Finland Company approached Blue Blake, for which he starred in The Wild Ones. It became a worldwide hit, giving him porn star fame." A former Royal Marine, Blake created several memorable films, including a trilogy for director Gino Colbert which he wrote himself: Black and Blue; Red, White, and Blue; and Men In Blue, which led to Blake's appearance with Colbert in the 1997 documentary on the adult industry, Shooting Porn, which the Dallas Voice declared to be his "finest on-screen appearance." After the formation of his production company, Blake received five GayVN nominations for Big Blue's first release, Demolition Daddy, and later, his Cowboy got 10 nominations, including Best Director and Best Screenplay. In 2005, Blake was inducted into the GayVN Hall of Fame. Blake is also known for the autobiography he authored in 2008, Out of the Blue: Confessions of an Unlikely Porn Star. Blake said of the book, "I wanted it to be a funny, light read. I tell people they should read this while sunbathing and drinking Mojitos. What did you expect anyway?" he asked Dallas Voice correspondent Daniel Kusner. Blake was proud of his work in the adult industry, and was outspoken regarding those who claimed to have been diminished by that work. "I have no sympathy whatsoever for people who do porn and regret it later. After they sign the release, they whine and complain about getting ripped off. Please!" Blake said. "I don’t have any regrets. I believe you end up in life where you’re supposed to end up." Blake had posted to his Facebook page, which he kept under his real name, Glenn Marsh, on Oct. 4, though only to change his profile photo.
