Candy Samples' life story

Candy began her career as a dancer and toured as an exotic dancer for many years. But her path changed dramatically when a photographer recognized her and wanted her to work with him as a nude model. At this stage, she was already in her 40s. This in itself is remarkable since many girls involved in this field are not more than in their early 30s.

Candy's voluptuous body and large chest made her look quite desirable despite her age. She seemingly enjoyed this work, and soon after this began her professional career as a buxom model in AV entertainment, which was the beginning of her decades-long career.

During the 1960s, the entertainer appeared in numerous black and white magazines in 'cheesecake' poses. She was one of the most sought-after models for magazine and poster work. Candy had a mischievous, friendly look that made her stand out from other models. She would sometimes pose for private photographic sessions for fans, who she encountered when dancing in clubs around the country. Throughout her career, she appeared in pornographic movies and some B-movie 'campy' roles. She also took part in some “sexy wrestling” short-footage films.

Candy Samples' boyfriends and relationships

From our research, it seems that the actress and model had many relationships throughout her life, but, unfortunately, she did not have the same luck in her romantic life as she did in her professional life. One of her husbands, who became her manager, bodyguard, and business partner reportedly took money from her and forced her to go back into hardcore movies when she was in her 50s. He was arrested twice for selling drugs and committed suicide in prison.

After Candy left the industry, she married again and moved to Texas. It is rumoured that she married a few more times after this, with each relationship not ending well. She spent her last days being looked after by a close friend, who has been a fan.
