Katsuni has appeared in multiple double penetration scenes throughout her career. She’s also a lesbian goddess appearing in the 2007 AVN Best all-Girl Sex Scene with Jessica Drake and Felecia. She’s also been impaled by none other than Lexington Steele himself.
Katsuni studied for a year at Grenoble Institute of Political Studies. Finding herself ill-suited for political science, she dropped out and then studied literature for three years, envisioning a career as a teacher. During her studies, she did gigs as a go-go dancer, which led her to be spotted by a photographer working for Penthouse. The magazine’s French branch was then looking for actresses who would appear in its adult pictures. Tran accepted Penthouse’s proposal for a shoot as a manner of challenge and because she thought it might be an exciting experience.
Having enjoyed her first experience, Katsuni decided to pursue a career in the adult film industry. For two years, she shot movies while continuing her studies but eventually renounced becoming a teacher and decided to pursue a career as a full-time adult actress. During her adult film career, which she began in 2001, she appeared in over 350 releases. In 2004, she was voted “the French’s favorite porn actress” in a readers’ poll organized by trade journal Hot Vidéo. She also appeared in several Italian and Spanish productions, working for director Mario Salieri and appearing alongside Rocco Siffredi in Who fucked Rocco ?, Fashionistas Safado: The Challenge and Fashionistas Safado: Berlin, the latter two being directed by John Stagliano.
In 2005, she decided to focus on her international career by working in the United States. During the next few years, she divided her time between France and the US, working mostly in the latter country. In December 2006, she became the first French actress to sign an exclusive performing contract with Digital Playground.
She originally performed using the stage name “Katsumi” (a common given name in Japan for both sexes), but she was barred by a French judge in Créteil, France in January 2007 from using the name, after a woman named Mary Katsumi sued over the resemblance to her own name. Although she had informed the websites that she had changed her stage name, various outlets kept referring to her as “Katsumi”. She was eventually sued again a few months later and, in September 2007, was fined €20,000, having been deemed responsible for various violations of the ban.
In May 2006, she got breast implants. Her first film with her new breasts, French ConneXion of Marc Dorcel Productions, came out at the beginning of 2007. In the meantime, Katsuni also graced the cover of Marquis magazine, a leader in fetishism, and hosted the weekly French TV show En attendant minuit, broadcast by TPS Star. She also continued working and touring as an exotic dancer in nightclubs of various countries. In July 2008, Katsuni released My Fucking Life, a French-language film made for Marc Dorcel Studios. The movie is partly a documentary on Katsuni’s daily life over a year, with a look at her shoots in Las Vegas, on set during filming in Porn Valley, along with a bit of her personal life. In 2008, she was part of the cast of Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge, one of the most expensive porn films ever produced. In 2012, she directed another feature for Dorcel, In bed with Katsuni.
During her adult career, Katsuni’s personality and success in the United States attracted the attention of the French mainstream medias. In October 2009 she was a guest in the popular talk show On n’est pas couché. In the early 2010s, she wrote articles about the porn industry for the magazines Les Inrockuptibles and Le Nouvel Observateur. In 2010-2011, she hosted on the French channel MCM Katsuni’s sexy mangas, a TV show dedicated to Hentai. The show was eventually canceled in March 2011 due to a decision of France’s Superior Council of Audiovisual content. Among other appearances in the French mainstream media, she played herself in the successful comedy film Porn in the Hood (2012). In 2013, she was one the porn stars interviewed in the American documentary film Aroused, directed by photographer Deborah Anderson. On 14 August 2013 Katsuni announced that she was retiring from porn in order to focus on “a new kind of entertainment”. She relocated to France and has been using since then her birth name, Céline Tran. A few months after her retirement, she was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame. Tran has since appeared in several mainstream productions. In 2014, she played a recurring character in the French web fiction Le Visiteur du futur. Also in 2014, she wrote the script for Heart Breaker, the sixth volume of the French comic book horror series DoggyBags. In 2016, she started working as a DJ and writing a blog focusing on cultural and sexual themes. She also underwent three years of martial arts training in order to secure roles in action films. In 2017, she played the main villainess in the Cambodian action film Jailbreak. Also in 2017, she started working for NextPLZ, a French community website aimed at youngsters, for which she hosts on Facebook Live a weekly show focusing on sexuality.
A couple of years back, this French hottie decided that it’s time to give up on port and follow her first acting dream. Most of her fans wished her luck, but many wanted her to fail, and come back to the adult industry. Her fame and success were reason of unrest for Katsuni, who had two major law suits, one against her, with a French lady who accused Katsuni for stealing her name, and one she started against the rapper Bow Wow for using footage of her stripping in one of his videos. Before the porn and all of her acting career, Katsuni was actually a bright student. She studied political sciences at one of the best universities in France, but she gave up on a political career to follow her true dream. Most of her revenues today are coming out of her personal line of lingerie Petit Coeur Lingerie, which became a wanted brand in both Europe and America. She is really into Japanese culture, manga and anime, and in her spare time she blogs for one of the biggest pop culture portals of France, Les Inrocks. All in all, she is both an awesome porn star and an awesome woman, being one of the most intelligent and active adult starlets of the world.
