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 shortly after being discovered by porn studio Kristen Bjorn while working as a chemist, and pursued a career in the adult industry “on a whim.” After moving to America and teaching himself English, the legend appeared in more than 45 adult films and countless other one-off scenes.
“He was a great guy, 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 his friend. “He was probably one of the biggest pornstars out there.”
Miklos, 45, was found dead in his apartment on Sunday, and left a suicide note with detailed instructions for his boyfriend concerning the burial of his body and the service. 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.
