Shyla Stylez (September 23, 1982 – November 9, 2017) was a Canadian pornographic actress.[2]

Career

Shyla Stylez became interested in entering the pornography industry in her teens, and later moved to Vancouver where she worked as both a stripper and a webcam model, and appeared in nude pictorials. In her off-time, she would contact studios by email and phone to find out how to appear in movies.[3] She received her first AVN Award nomination as Best New Starlet in 2003.

Stylez was involved in a sex scandal with former Orange County assistant-sheriff George Jaramillo, where she was noted as having had several sexual encounters with him.[2]

Stylez signed on as exclusive contract performer for Jill Kelly Productions and later married its CEO, Bob Friedland, on October 25, 2002. The couple divorced in August 2003,[4] but Friedland held Stylez to her contract, making it impossible for her to shoot hardcore scenes for anyone else.[5] In September 2004, she met Michael Whiteacre, who cast her in a series of softcore late-night movies in 2004 and 2005.[5] In August 2005, Jill Kelly Productions filed for bankruptcy.[6]

Stylez was nominated at the 2009 XRCO Awards for the Best Comeback. Stylez hosted the Los Angeles independent TV show Un-Wired TV in 2007.[7][8]

The following year (2008), she was nominated for more AVN Awards, including Best Supporting Actress, for Best Tease Performance, and for her performances in My Plaything: Shyla Stylez and Pirates II. In 2010, she was named by Maxim as one of the 12 top female stars in porn.[9] Shyla Stylez was inducted into the Halls of Fame of the Urban X Awards and the AVN in 2011 and 2016, respectively.
