Born 1954 in Perth, Australian actress and model Cheryl Rixon was twice a finalist in the Annual Miss West Coast bikini beauty pageant, staged in Perth each January in the early 1970s. She later appeared as a game show assistant on local TV.
After appearing in obscure low-budget sex-comedy film Plugg (1975), Rixon came to Melbourne and acted in several television roles for Crawford Productions. She played three different roles during the final episodes of Homicide.
Starting in mid-1975, Rixon also began making appearances in Crawford Production’s sex-comedy soap opera The Box. She subsequently found fame as Penthouse magazine’s December 1977 Pet, and in 1979 she was chosen Penthouse‘s Pet of the Year in a televised pageant held at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas.
In 1980, Rixon kicked off New York Mayor Ed Koch’s “Festival of Fragrances”. She was again showcased with a ten-page spread in Penthouse in 1980, and posed for Oui magazine in November 1982. During this period, she also appeared in films such as The Eyes of Laura Mars and Used Cars.
Rixon now lives in the US and designs jewelry which she sells under the name of ‘Royal Order’, and married to club owner Art Davis with whom she has two sons.
