Jessica Drake: I don't want to be one of those chicks that becomes a director just because she wants to see her name on the box cover. I decided to start seeing what I thought I would be good at in the business. I have worked on a few sets where I was not in the movie and I try to learn every aspect of the business. I've done a lot of art direction. I don't want to be the person behind the monitor telling people, 'That looks terrible. Fix it.' I want to be the person that says, 'I don't like the way this is. Let's do it this way.' I want to really understand every aspect of the business before I can call myself a director.
Jessica Drake: Once you decide to get into porn you really can't take it back. To their credit, everyone that I talked to before getting into the business were very clear with me. Things were thoroughly explained to me. I understood the consequences of what I was thinking about doing.
Jessica Drake: I was a house dancer in Texas. It was very stereotypical. I was stripping my way through college. I had about two and a half years of college under my belt and I was a psychology major. I went to community college in El Paso and I was then going to the University of Texas at El Paso, UTEP. I worked at a club, especially on the weekends so I could have time during the week to study. I kept on seeing these feature entertainers come through. They are the girls that have set stage times and they have these incredible costumes and they have done magazine and movies. I have a real knack for being on stage. (on how she got into the adult industry)
Jessica Drake: I love Wicked Pictures. I don't think I could have made a better choice in this industry. My contract came up in April 2006 for renegotiation and we haven't released an official press release but a lot of people do know that it was a successful renegotiation. I don't see myself ever working for another company as long as I am in this industry. They have been that good to me.
Jessica Drake: When I find out about a role I will be playing in my next movie, the first thing I do is get online and do some research. A great example is when we shot Curse Eternal I went to the King Tut exhibit which happened to be touring in Los Angeles as we were shooting the movie. That was a great coincidence. I like to do a little extra research because I like to see all the characters a bit more in depth.
