Porn Superstar Arpad Miklos Dead At 45

Feb 05, 2013 | Posted by Bradford Matthews in Announcements

All deaths in the industry are difficult to cope with, but this one is especially troubling for us.

Randal Lynch, a writer and personal friend of porn superstar Arpad Miklos (aka Peter Kozma), confirmed the passing of the adult actor in a YouTube newscast titled "The Howard Bragman Show" this morning. The cause of death was suicide.

The Hungarian-born legend moved to America after being discovered by porn studio Kristen Bjorn in 1995, and pursued a career in the adult industry "on a whim." Miklos appeared in hundreds of films and scenes for a number of popular gay porn studios during his 15 years in the business.

"He was a great guy, and on top of that, there was a lot more to him than just that surface persona. He was a very active person in the gay community, he gave a lot of money to charities, and was overall a really good guy", Lynch says of Miklos. "He was probably one of the biggest pornstars out there."

Miklos, 45,  was found dead in his New York apartment on Sunday, leaving only a suicide note with detailed instructions for an ex-boyfriend concerning his burial services. When asked if depression may have played a role in the suicide, Lynch claims "he [Miklos] wasn't happy, but he wasn't going into crying fits. I knew he was depressed, but I didn't realize the severity of it because he wasn't a very talkative person."

Also in the note, Miklos' final words for the judgement he expected today, as interpreted by Lynch: "haters can hate, people can speculate, but he's not going to give a specific reason and give that satisfaction to anyone."

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Arpad's friends, family, and everyone affected by the tragedy.
