Dani Woodward (born March 7, 1984)
is the stage name of an American pornographic actress. Her real name is
Sara Combest. She is noted for her enthusiastic acting, playful attitude,
and realistic orgasm scenes.
Born in Livonia, Michigan, Woodward graduated from Livonia Stevenson High
School. She began acting in porn films in 2003, taking her stage name from
Woodward Avenue in Detroit, Michigan.
She initially got into the adult industry by appearing in photos that
appeared on amateur sites on the Internet. A photographer at one of the
shoots suggested that Woodward try films, which prompted Woodward to fly
to Los Angeles for a one week trial; she ended up staying three weeks. She
returned to her apartment in Detroit, packed up everything and moved
cross-country to L.A. with her father helping with the driving.
Her first scene was with Mr. Marcus for a Simon Wolf production.
According to the Sky Television documentary Porno Valley (Episode A Penny
For Your Thong, World of Wonder Productions Inc., 2003), Woodward
attempted to join Vivid Entertainment when she first entered the adult
industry. She won the open competition, impressing the judges with her
endurance and energy but failed to secure the contract due to failing the
required drug test.
As of 2006, much of her work has been for Internet websites. She has
appeared in several scenes for Naughty America, including the Bookworm
Bitches and My Sister's Hot Friend series. Early in her career, she did
some work for Netvideogirls, helping to increase the popularity of the
website. Woodward has acted in lesbian and gonzo scenes, but has not
performed in more extreme genres such as anal-oriented scenes. She has
said this is because her popularity amongst her fans allows her more
control over the roles she chooses.
She had a boyfriend in high school, who she dated for two years. She has
said that "I like to date couples and have threeways in my personal life."
