Career and personal life
Darrian started her career as a nude model posing for lesbian-themed photoshoots. When she crossed over to adult film, she initially performed only in "all-girl" scenes. As offers increased for her to participate in heterosexual scenes, she began working onscreen with Derrick Lane (whom she married in 1994). She signed an exclusive contract with Vivid Video; eventually tiring of constantly working with Lane, she insisted on working with other men. In fact, her exclusive on-screen commitment to Lane has been credited as the main reason to her waning popularity in adult films. Darrian divorced Derrick Lane in 2000. She has sometimes been referred to as the "brunette goddess of porn" or a "Vivid Queen". Darrian was the October 1990 Penthouse Pet of the Month, as "Kelly Jackson", and in Playboy's 1996 pictorial "Strippers".
