Exploitation Women Spotlight #2

Gail Harris
Best known for:
"Sorority House Massacre II" (1990)
"Hard to Die" (1990)
"Cellblock Sisters" (1995)

Born in December of 1964, Gail Harris found a career as a young woman in modeling and film. Gail was one of the most memorable 1990s scream queens. She was truly a bombshell blonde, with a voice and a smile that really made her stand out from the crowd. The English actress was one of the many busty femme fatales Jim Wynorski constantly used in his horrible, but sometimes entertaining movies.
1990's Hard to Die brought itself some attention when it received the NC-17 rating that few films had.
Her softcore/horror career lasted a few more years but died off, for the most part, eventually. She was able, however, to rack up several producer credits along the way. Ms. Harris went by other names too like most of these actresses did. Robyn Harris was one of her pen-names and Gail Thackray was apparently her real name.


  1. Nice write-up. Always wanted to see Hard To Die.

  2. Hi, I was wondering if Gail Thackray the actress shown here is perhaps the same Gail Tackray involved with Spiritual Healing and john of god stuff. Their photos look alike.

    1. Oh really? they still do really look like each other. I would bet they're the same person.

  3. Mr Xploit,
    Gail Harris and Gail Thackray are definitely the same person! She runs an online pornography business in association with Hustler's Larry Flynt. Recently, she has transitioned into the lucrative New Age Spiritual business, promoting faith healer john of god in Brazil, running tours, selling psychic healings, etc. Quite an enterpeneur!
