Adult film actor Amber Rayne has been found dead in her Los Angeles home.

The 31-year-old was one of five women who had accused fellow porn actor James Deen of sexual assault - the actor denied the allegations.

The actress, whose real name is Meghan Wren, collapsed and died at her home.

The cause of death is not yet known.

The assistant chief of the Los Angeles County coroner's office, Ed Winter, said her death appeared to be the result of an accident or overdose.

An autopsy with a full toxicology report is still pending.

A friend was at the home at the time Wren collapsed. She was pronounced dead about 3:15 p.m., according to Winter.

Rayne, originally from Detroit, enjoyed a decade-long career in the adult film industry and had nearly 500 credited roles.

On Twitter, colleagues described her as "one of the sweetest people in our industry".

She also loved horses and rode dressage as a hobby, calling herself a “dressage princess”.
