Adult to mainstream and back again, crossover sensation Ginger Lynn www.gingerlynn.com is back in mainstream waters once again, this time in a recurring role for the new FOX television drama, “Skin,” produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Hoosier Karma Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television Productions, Inc. The show, helmed by a team of iconic executive producers — Jerry Bruckheimer (“Pearl Harbor,” “Without a Trace”), Jonathan Littman (“C.S.I.,” “Without a Trace”) and Jim Leonard (“Thieves,” “Night Visions”) — is a dynamic and visually compelling series that exposes a world of forbidden love, naked ambition, family betrayal and the business of moral corruption.
Lynn, now in her fourth week of shooting, portrays the character, Amber Synn – a retired porn queen whose popularity helped Larry Goldman (Ron Silver) launch his adult entertainment empire in the late 1980s. The first “Golden Girl,” she was an exclusive contract player who made over 300 films for Golden International, quickly rising to stardom and just as quickly adopting a self-destructive lifestyle. Drugs and alcohol took its toll, but Amber pulled herself up by her bootstraps and got clean for the sake of her son. Amber Synn’s once notorious and glamorous persona is now replaced by one of a caring mother. She has no regrets for her career choice and both loves and hates Larry Goldman, the man who made her a star.
“Skin” premieres on FOX Monday night, October 20th, though Lynn’s character is not introduced until the second episode following the pilot, airing on Monday, November 3rd. Lynn has thus far shot four episodes for the series and will continue to play an intricate role in the show’s plot for the remainder of the season.
This is by no means Ginger Lynn’s first appearance on television. Aside from being profiled on nearly every major news show and appearing on a variety of television talk shows, Lynn has appeared in guest starring roles on “Silk Stalkings” and “NYPD Blue.” At one point, she was considered the queen of late night cable, starring in campy classics like “Vice Academy,” “Dr. Alien” and “Buried Alive,” before going onto appear in mainstream motion pictures like “Young Guns II,” “Bound & Gagged: A Love Story,” “Whore” and most recently, 2002’s “The Independent,” opposite Jerry Stiller and Janeane Garafollo.
