Darius Lavale is an actor in the web series Steel River. For those who haven’t seen it yet, Darius is most known for being a former gay porn star by the name of Kidd the Icon. He recently did an interview with The M.A.N. Podcast where about 90 minutes he opened up about his life from childhood to present. Probably the most shocking thing to hear is that he’s 37. It makes sense considering he started in the early 2000s, you’d just never know it by looking at him.

Born in Germany, raised in Italy, he moved to Georgia at 12. He talks about his 3 suicide attempts, being picked on severely in school and how in school he didn’t speak often and when he did it was about sex. Darius is someone we have heard a lot about in the rumor mill over the years and it’s people like that that generally end up becoming closed off, choosing not to share much about their life. That’s why we were shocked to hear a lot of what he had to say during his interview.

He says he started watching porn at 3 which considering how things turned out, perhaps one could say it was destined. In his defense, he said his granddad left a tape in the VCR. He was diagnosed as bipolar at 19 which might explain his suicide attempts growing up. In college he spent a few years as a freshman without credits because he kept dropping classes as he was being introduced to guys. It was around that time at Georgia State University where he felt that doing porn was his best option.

Fast forward to today, not long ago he’s left Atlanta to move to New York to pursue acting. He says he wants to be able to participate in projects where he can give back to the community so people won’t have to make the same mistakes he did. This is why he’s in the Henderson Maddox Signal 23 Television web series Steel River about young gay men forced to deal with the early days of coming out and how things didn’t exactly pan out the way they thought they would.
