Gay porn star Arpad Miklos dies at age 45 | VIDEO

NEW YORK – Internationally known gay porn star Arpad Miklos was found dead in his apartment on Sunday, according to several online sources. He was 45.

Born on Sept. 11, 1967 in Hungary, the former chemist born Peter Kozma was discovered by the Kristen Bjorn porn studio in 1995. He moved to the U.S. shortly after that, putting together a successful career in gay porn for about 15 years. He made almost 60 films.

At 6-feet-2 with rugged good looks and a chiseled body, Miklos quickly rose to fame working for such directors as John Rutherford, Chi Chi LaRue and others. He won a Grabby Award and a GayVN Award for his part in “BuckleRoos Part I,” according to Wikipedia.

Miklos also was voted Best Top Escort at the 2007 International Escort Awards.

Randal Lynch, a writer in New York City who said he was a friend of Miklos, said in a YouTube video posted by “GWISSUES with Howard” on “The Howard Bradman Show” that the porn star had killed himself and left behind a suicide note.

“He was probably one of the biggest pornstars out there,” Lynch said of Miklos. “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 he was overall a really good guy.”

Lynch said Miklos wasn’t “happy, but he didn’t go into crying fights.” He said he knew his friend was depressed but he hide it well.

Indicating that he read the suicide note, Lynch said Miklos said he knew there will be judgment and that he left burial instructions for his ex-boyfriend.
