Abella Danger, real name Rosa Luisa Cruz, is a Jewish-American adult film star, born in Miami Florida on November 19th, 1995, and is of Ukrainian-Jewish descent. She made her adult film debut in July 2014 at 18 years old, and since then has become one of the most popular, in-demand stars of the industry. She’s known for her buxom figure, natural breasts and bubble butt. She’s worked for all well-known studios like Bang Bros, Evil Angel, Brazzers, Girlsway and many others. In 2016 she won the ‘Best New Starlet’ awards for AVN, XBIZ and XRCO, and has won awards each year since then. She has her own fleshlight, and has also enjoyed mainstream success, appearing in a story for Elite Daily, and appeared in the Kanye West video for the song, ‘I Love It’. Kanye West, as part of a partnership with Pornhub, also had a t-shirt made of her likeness and several other stars.
Rosa Luisa Cruz, better known as Abella Danger, was born on November 19th, 1995 making her a Scorpio. She was raised in a strict, Jewish household. Her parents divorced when she was young, and she was raised by her mom and stepdad for most of her childhood. She enjoyed the art of dance and was a trained ballet dancer for many years, starting at 3 years old. She still dances to this day but keeps it to herself mostly. She told Hot Movies in 2016, “Dancing makes me express my emotions without words, it’s an art I keep private I do it just for myself. I don’t gain anything except peace.”
When she was 18, she was in college and intending to become an international flight attendant. She was dating a porn star, and after a few months he had asked her to film a scene with him. She was hesitant at first, but after some thought she decided to give it a try and she shot her first scene with him for Bang Bros. She enjoyed it immediately, telling Adult DVD Talk, “I truly loved that once the camera started rolling, this alter ego came out, this slutty little thing and the best part is no judgement for it. In fact, I got praised for it. I may have fell into porn on accident, but it was meant for me.”
She shot five scenes with her boyfriend at the time for Bang Bros and she decided she wanted to make it a career. The unnamed star did not like the idea of her filming with other men, so they eventually parted ways. She contacted Mark Spiegler, one of the industry’s top talent agents and she joined his Spieglers Girls agency. She dropped out of college and moved to Los Angeles to chase her dream shortly after.
Her porn career officially started in 2014 and as a Spiegler Girl, Abella Danger immediately had the opportunity to work with major companies and directors right out of the gate. After the initial scenes with Bang Bros, she shot her first scenes with Evil Angel for director Manuel Ferrara’s Raw series, as well as an intimate, hardcore lesbian encounter with Maddy O’Reilly for Fetish Fanatic 15, directed by Aiden Riley. From there she was recruited by director Greg Lansky for her first interracial scenes with IR website Blacked. Abella told Fleshbot about working with Lansky; “Greg is my favorite director, he’s so innovated and analytical, perfection is a must. I always want to impress him and do well for him because he truly brings it out of me.” She shot two interracial scenes with Blacked that year; a threesome scene alongside Keisha Grey, and a one on one scene with Rob Piper. “I liked how they stand out from any other site, not only as an interracial one”, she continued, speaking of Blacked in particular. “It’s classy and more tasteful than anything else on the market. It’s almost a timeless look.”
2015 was her first full year in the business and she made it a busy one, appearing in over 150 films and scenes. On January 1, Evil Angel released the movie ‘Enter her Exit’, directed by Mike Adriano on their website. In scene 4, Abella stars alongside Kelsi Monroe for her most hardcore scene yet, sucking Adriano’s dick after he fucks Kelsi’s ass. This was a sign for things to come in 2015 where Abella officially makes her mark on the adult industry.
Abella did her first anal scene for Brazzers in the scene ‘Abella’s Ass is in Danger’ which was released in February 2015 and followed it up with a lesbian anal scene with on of her industry idols, Carter Cruise. Now that the landmark of her first anal scene was behind her, Abella starred in several anal films for Evil Angel that year including Anal Angels, Anal Hotties, Analmals and Anal Corruption 3.
But the big news came later that year when she was named Brand Ambassador for Airerose Entertainment. Airerose vice president Adam H commented on the partnership; “In less than a year, Abella Danger has built a loyal fan base and reputation upon a foundation of hard work, dedication and graciousness. Not to mention those stunning curves, unforgettable face and uninhibited, mesmerizing performance style.”
With this news came the announcement of the movie ‘All Access: Abella Danger’, her first showcase movie. The movie also starred Phoenix Marie in a lesbian scene that was nominated for an AVN award for Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene, and it included Abella’s first double vaginal penetration scene with Toni Ribas and Ramon Nomar. Abella commented on her first showcase movie; “I was stunned, I could not believe that out of all the girls they’ve shot in the past and all the girls in the industry they chose me. I really hope I represent Airerose in the best way possible.”
2015 Also saw Abella Danger’s first scenes with lesbian porn site Girlsway, as well as other popular brands such as Arch Angel and Mile High Media and top fetish site Kink. After her epic first year in the industry, it came as no surprise that Abella Danger took home the ‘Best New Starlet’ awards from AVN, XBIZ and XRCO, as well as the AVN fan award for Hottest Newcomer at the beginning of 2016. She told Jelena Jenson on the achievement “It was awesome, it was the best moment of my life and really great to see my hard work pay off.”
The firsts kept coming for Abella Danger, most notably in 2016 when she shot her first anal interracial for Dark X, directed by the respected, Mason. “Mason and I had this easy chemistry working together from the first time I ever shot for her” Abella said. “Some of the best sex of my life has been in front of her, and I wanted my first interracial anal to be one of those experiences.” The scene was included in the appropriately titled DVD, Interracial Anal and her scene partner was the famous Lexington Steele. Abella also filmed her first DP/DA scene with Mason later that year in her second showcase DVD; ‘Abella’.
Abella has also done many scenes with esteemed lesbian porn site, Girlsway, and was even their Girlsway Girl of the Month in March 2016. Throughout the years she filmed Girlsway scenes with stars like Adriana Chechik, Angela White and Keisha Grey. When asked in interviews, Abella has stated that she identifies herself as bisexual and that she always liked girls from an early age, and her first relationship was with a girl.
Shes also shot another showcase movie with Devil’s Film for their ‘Seduction’ series in the movie titled, ‘The Seduction of Abella Danger’, which featured an all-girl orgy with Kagney Lynn Karter, Katy Kiss, Sasha Heart and Kat Dior, all having their way with Abella Danger. Devil’s Film vice president Steve Volponi told AVN, “This gangbang will definitely go into my personal spank bank as one of the hottest all-girl orgies myself, and my cock, have ever witnessed!” She also starred in features from Mile High Media and director Jacky St. James, starting with 2017’s ‘The Obsession’, which she said was her favorite project of that year. Abella starred in the film as a woman with an unhealthy obsession with her female roommate. “Abella was coming up with some great ideas for her character”, director St. James told AVN. “The subtext and little nuances that she did…a lot of people don’t know that side of her. She’s very sexual and flirtatious, but there’s more to her.”
A year later, Jacky St. James brought back Abella Danger to star in another feature titled, ‘Paparazzi’, about a young girl trying to make it in Hollywood as a photographer. “She shows us the seedier side of showbiz as her character loses herself to her passion and ambition as she plays opposite our talented cast, who perfectly embody these gorgeous but flawed people in this erotic drama” St James said.
Abella told fellow pornstar Jelena Jenson that Paparazzi was “one of my greatest highlights. Me and her (Jacky St James) just know how to get to that core of each other, like there’s no bullshit between me and her. I always feel like I do so good when I’m in her presence. I love that woman.” Recently Abella worked with Jacky St James yet again for the erotic studio Bellesa Films in a series called ‘Holding Out & Giving In’ in which she starred with another hugely popular name, Riley Reid.
As busy as she’s been since her debut, it doesn’t look like Abella Danger will be slowing down any time soon. She recently appeared in the season finale of Lady Gonzo, a series directed by Joanna Angel for the Adult Time network that saw Joanna shooting old school gonzo porn her way, with the stars she wants. “This is a special scene” Joanna told AVN. “The sexual chemistry between Abella and myself has always been kind of magical. That, combined with the large cock of the handsome Juan Lucho in our asses, was truly something amazing.”
Recently celebrating her fourth year in the business, Abella Danger sat down with AVN to reflect on the last four years. “I’ve definitely learned how to really love myself because if I don’t love myself, no one else is going to” she said. “It’s given me more confidence than anything else in the world can.” When asked if she had any goals left that she wanted to accomplish in her adult career, she expressed interest in directing. “Right now, I’m working really hard toward directing for a company and shooting brand new-girls and making them look super cute. I want to make girls feel pretty and make them have amazing sex and all these amazing things that all these amazing directors have done for me, I want to do that too”
It seems she’s going to get that opportunity as she recently signed an exclusive one-year contract with Brazzers who intends to give her that freedom and she plans to have her directing debut out in the next 12 months. “I’m in the process of getting the most knowledgeable that I can with the cinematography before I finally start shooting.” She continued on the Brazzers partnership; “I’m so excited to give Brazzers 1,000 percent of me. I can’t wait for all the interesting opportunities presented with the brand both in adult and mainstream. This year is going to be epic!”
