Adult film actress Marilyn Chambers died Sunday at her Los Angeles home. She was 56.

The veteran porn star, whose real name was Marilyn Ann Taylor, was found dead by her daughter at her mobile home where she had been living for the past several months.

No cause of death is yet known, and an autopsy will be performed.

Chambers started out as a model on the Ivory Snow laundry detergent box. She rose to international fame when she starred in the 1972 film “Behind the Green Door,” where she was seen having sex with an African-American.

Chambers had a bit part in the 1970 Barbra Streisand film “The Owl and the Pussycat,” and starred in the 1977 David Cronenberg horror movie “Rabid.”
