Axel Braun

Exclusive Director Next Previous

The son of legendary porn-pioneer Lasse Braun and grandson of a diplomat, Axel Braun was born and raised in Italy, where he received a privileged upper-class upbringing. Fluent in five languages, a member of MENSA, a film-school graduate, and the bearer of a Ph.D. in psychology, Axel has a unique cultural background that sets him apart from the many other directors in the adult industry. 

A second-generation AVN and XRCO Hall-of-Famer, over the span of his career he has won hundreds of awards all over the world for directing, producing, screenwriting, and editing, including seven consecutive “Director Of The Year” AVN awards. 

Always eager to grow as an artist and filmaker, Braun is now directing, writing and producing his distinctive brand of big-budget parodies and stylish all-sex releases  exclusively for Wicked Pictures, where he is earning major awards and critical accolades for such smash hits as ‘Justice League XXX: An Axel Braun Parody’ (for his Wicked Comix line) and his Wicked Fairy Tales release ‘Peter Pan XXX: An Axel Braun Parody.’
