Allysin Chaynes (aka Allysin Chains, Allyson Chaynes, Allycin Chains) was born in Romania but was raised in the States. She eventually moved out to California's San Fernando Valley in hopes that she could become a film actress. She began taking acting classes to help her with her aspirations. Allysin first began in the adult industry in 1997 when she and her then-boyfriend answered an ad in the paper for adult performers for Randy West's Up and Cummers 45. Her stage name is derived from the rock group Alice in Chains; she wanted to call herself Allysin Wonderland but changed it at the insistence of Randy West. Allysin lent her voice to the English dub of the hentai anime Vicious, released in 2001. She played the main character Angela in both episodes of the series.
