Blue Blake has died at the age of 52.
The legendary British gay porn star who spent nearly 20 years in the adult industry was found dead in his apartment in London.
Friends had not heard from him so a couple went round on Monday night (12 October) and let themselves in. They discovered the body in a chair and immediately called 999.
A Met Police spokesperson has confirmed that they are not investigating and are not ruling the death at this time as suspicious. An inquest will follow.
Blue Blake starred, written, directed and produced many pornographic movies in his life, and in 2005 was inducted into the GayVN Legend Porn Hall of Fame.
Blake, who reportedly died in London, performed in several gay porn scenes between 1993 and 2003 before taking a more active role behind the scenes, according to the website. Blake, whose real name is Glenn Marsh, ran his own studio, Big Blue Productions, and in 2008 published an autobiography “Out of the Blue; Confessions of an Unlikely Porn Star.” […]
Blake was a former Royal Marine (the U.K.’s amphibious light infantry force) and hailed from Nottingham, England, according to Al’s Gay Porn Stars directory, which also notes he studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts and appeared on stage in the U.K.
‘Blue was one of the first gay porn stars (and later porn directors) that I became a fan of back when I started exploring my sexuality,’ one of the people who paid tribute said on Blake’s Facebook page.
‘He was one sexy bloke, beefy and boisterous, and I was pleased to find that in real life, he was just as full of life and pleasure. He was a generous, passionate man and the world is a less exuberant place without him.’
