Bridget was discovered at a goth nightclub by a man who was working as a make-up artist for a gothic vampire adult movie. She made her debut in the porn industry in 1999, appearing in 65 to 70 original films with compilations bringing that up to over 110. She left the business as she wished to do condom-only scenes yet many of the male performers would remove the condoms.
She said of her departure from the industry during an interview, "I'd say the guys in the porn industry are dirty and I was afraid I was going to catch something. I heard rumors going around. I had decided to do condom only scenes, but when I did that, a lot of the time, the guys take the condoms off during the scene, so I said screw that. So I stopped because no one wanted to play by the rules and keep it safe."
Besides appearing in erotic films, Bridget also stars in some mainstream films that included "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell", "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" and "8mm". She was also a co-host on Ed Powers' radio show "Bedtime Stories" and joined a bad named Blakkout.
