Amy Lindsay has appeared in several film and TV roles which is why being cast in Ted Cruz‘s “Conservatives Anonymous” ad on Thursday seemed like just another day in the casting department.

In the 30-second TV spot targeted at attacking rival presidential hopeful Marc Rubio, Lindsay suggests to the Florida Senator’s supporters, “Maybe you vote for more than just a pretty face.”

However, the ad was instantly pulled after The Daily Caller pointed out that she had 74 porn credits. Since that ad was paid for by a registered presidential committee, Cruz was required to “put his name on the attack before it hit the Internet,” according to Daily Mail.

Here’s what you need to know:


1. She Landed the Ted Cruz Ad Spot Through an Open Casting Call

Lindsay — shown above on her Instagram page — landed the role by responding to an open casting call and came through during her audition. However, after failing to review her film credits — which included a slew of porn — Cruz’s campaign team decided to do some major damage control by completely pulling the ad and starting from scratch.

A Cruz spokesperson told Independent the following, regarding the matter:

“http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/ted-cruz-presidential-campaign-removes-advert-featuring-adult-film-actress-amy-lindsay-a6869801.html“The actress responded to an open casting call. She passed her audition and got the job. Unfortunately, she was not vetted by the casting company. Had the campaign known of her full filmography, we obviously would not have let her appear in the ad.”

The spokesperson continued that a different ad commercial would be filmed in its place.

“The campaign is taking the ad down and will replace it with a different commercial.”


2. She’s Received Overwhelming Support Since the Ted Cruz Ad Was Pulled

Since the Ted Cruz ad was pulled, Lindsay — shown above in a throwback LA photo — continues to receive an overwhelming amount of support. Several of her followers on Twitter expressed their disbelief over the controversial predicament.

Lindsay herself also pulled no punches when it came to expressing her dismay as she used a notable hashtag that read “#myvotecounts.”

In her follow-up tweet, Lindsay seemingly indicates that she had received some sort of approval from a person within Cruz’s camp.


3. She’s Gone By 6 Different Names In Her Softcore Porn Career

As previously indicated, Lindsay has appeared in 74 softcore movies consisting of erotic titles such as Carnal Wishes, Insatiable Desires and Private Sex Club, amongst others. On January 21, she ran into porn veteran Ron Jeremy at The Hard Rock in Las Vegas and tweeted the above photo.

According to her IMDB page, Lindsay has used six different names for her various movie credits: Lynsey Ames, Katie Campbell, Summer Leeds, Leah Riley, Julie Snow and Lexie Tyler.


4. She Has a Degree in Journalism at The University of Texas

Lindsay — pictured above on October 11, 2014 — was born in Columbus, Ohio and spent her childhood in Houston, Texas.
She graduated from the University of Texas — located in Austin — with a degree in Journalism and a minor in Drama. In 1995, she decided that public relations and marketing wasn’t for her so she moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting.


5. She’s Had a Variety of Jobs & Roles on Various TV Shows

Lindsay — pictured above alongside actor Spencer Garrett on January 9 — has made several guest star appearance on several notable TV shows. She played Lana in 2001 on Star Trek Voyager, White in 1997 on Silk Stalkings and Sherry in 1999 on Pacific Blue, amongst others.

Acting aside, she’s also taken on a slew of other behind-the-camera jobs with the following amount of credits for each: Casting director(3), producer(3), makeup department(3) and production manager(1), according to IMDB.
