If Savannah Gold seemed to just pop up on the porn scene overnight it's because she did. Well as Savannah Gold at least. She's actually been around since 2005 but as Natalie Heck.
She worked mainly in Britain as Natalie Heck (and she had a C cup back then too but she is a natural A) and had made a HUGE splash there. She had her own personal web site, had made over 140 movies, worked as an escort out of London, and had won the 2006 BGAFD Best Female Award at The UK Adult Film Awards. She also had an exclusive contract with Bluebird.
So what happened to Natalie? Rumour has it that she cut another actress with a broken bottle in a fight AND broke her contract with Bluebird, hence the name change to Savannah Gold. I checked her Natalie Heck site and it opened in 2005 and closed mid-2007.
In July 2010, Savannah was attacked in her home and had her throat slashed by an intruder. She survived the attack and the attacker got 8 years in jail.
On October 17th, 2011 she died of a brain aneurysm in her home in Yorkshire. She was 26 years old.
