4128Adult Video News reports that legendary industry actor Harry Reems – who acquired fame as the lead male role in the iconic film Deep Throat alongside Linda Lovelace – passed away yesterday in Salt Lake City, VA following a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer and other health issues.

Reems was reportedly hospitalized on March 5 because of jaundice due to liver failure. He fell into a coma on March 15 and died Tuesday afternoon.

In addition to his career-making appearance in Deep Throat, Reems also performed in the Georgina Spelvin-starred The Devil in Miss Jones and is the only actor in XXX history to face federal obscenity charges for participating in an adult film.

Reems overcame drug and alcohol addictions after leaving the industry and subsequently converted to Christianity and embarked on a new career as a real estate broker.

Reems was 65 years old at the time of his passing and is survived by his wife of 22 years, Jeannie. Condolences to his family and friends.
