Silvia Saint interview
PRIVATE: Silvia, please tell us a bit about your background.
SILVIA SAINT: "After school, I studied management for two years at an institute in Brno. After that I was employed as manager in one of the biggest hotels in the city of Zlin. From there I moved into a private firm where I was responsible for accountancy and marketing. The job was hard though, and I didn't make a lot of money. That's why I accepted a proposal to do modeling. I started doing underwear shows and then came up proposals for soft nude pictures. I tried it and I liked it. "
PRIVATE: How did you get involved in the porn industry?
SILVIA SAINT: "My then-boyfriend took me to a casting for an American porn production. From all the girls present I was the only one who was selected. They gave me a few days to think about it, and finally I said yes."
PRIVATE: What was your first film?
SILVIA SAINT: "It was directed by Frank Thring, and I believe it was called 'Lee Nover: Search for the perfect breasts'. I did one scene there with Czech actor Robert Rosenberg."
PRIVATE: You kept on modeling for magazines at the same time?
SILVIA SAINT: "Yeah, I did lots of it. Mostly soft single or couple photo's. I was Penthouse Pet of the year 1996 in the Czech Penthouse. And I was competing for that in the US edition as well, in 1998. I did many photo's for Czech magazines like Fontana, Leo."
PRIVATE: Do you have a boyfriend?
SILVIA SAINT: "No. I had one before - he was also in this business but he was not happy that I did this job. That's why we split. But we're still good friends."
PRIVATE: What's the best movie you made so far, you think?
SILVIA SAINT: "That would be the Uranus Experiment, for Private It was a really interesting job to do, with a great team, lots of fun, nice scenes and of course zero gravity sex."
PRIVATE: Do you have any favorite actors to work with?
SILVIA SAINT: "Not really, no. I like to work with professionals only in the first place. They know what to do and how to do it, they're 100% clean and are careful and tender. I liked working with guys like Philippe Dean and Andrew Youngman. With women I liked to work with my good friend Dolores Nero, American Missy or Dutch Helen Duval."
PRIVATE: What about Rocco?
SILVIA SAINT: "I only worked with Rocco once. That was with 'Rocco and Miss Erotica in Prague'. We did 4 scenes only, and he cut them into other films. What I remember is that we did a scene in a limousine. Rocco became very wild, because he liked working with me. I saw him a couple of weeks ago and he was proposing to me a role in one of his new film, in September. "
PRIVATE: Are you bisexual?
SILVIA SAINT: "No, I'm 100% hetero. But I don't object to having sex with other women. "
PRIVATE: What do you like best: filming in Europe or the States?
SILVIA SAINT: "I prefer working in the States. Because in the USA they do not shoot hard sex like in Europe. They just do a couple of sex scenes and at maximum you do anal. That's it. And they're much faster than the Europeans. A scene in LA usually takes up to four hours. In Europe sometimes one scene takes 20 hours.
"PRIVATE: Why are there so many Czech girls in adult films?
SILVIA SAINT: "I don't know. In any case I'm sure their number is much smaller that Hungarian girls. It's fine with me, as long as the girls are beautiful, know their price, and know what they do and do it professionally. "
PRIVATE: Are you well known in your country?
SILVIA SAINT: "I know that some people do know me, they saw my pictures in a magazine or they watched my movies. Some of them like me and support me, others hate me for doing porn and making big money. I guess they're just jealous. "
PRIVATE: How long do you want to continue in this biz?
SILVIA SAINT: "Probably for another 4 to 5 years, I don't know really. It depends on who wants to work with me. But I would like to do more soft photos, that suits me the best."
PRIVATE: Silvia, In “Dangerous Things”, you play Ether, a famous erotic novel writer who can’t stop making love. How often do you have sex?
SILVIA SAINT: Well, every day. Working in this business is the most common thing.
