Early life

Harris' parents were British entertainers, who were working at the England-themed amusement park in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, where she was born. After Harris' birth they returned to England, before returning for good to the United States and settling in San Diego, California, where she and her two elder sisters grew up. Harris was first exposed to the entertainment industry through her late father, Ray Harris, who was a singer and songwriter.

Harris attended La Jolla High School and San Diego State University, majoring in psychology. It was during this period that she started modeling, and came to the attention of the Playboy organization.


Harris met Hugh Hefner on Halloween 2008. She was attending a party at the Playboy mansion, to which she had been invited by a friend. She then appeared as "Co-Ed of the week" on magazine during the week of October 30, 2008, under the name Crystal Carter. From late 2009, Harris has appeared in one of the seasons of E!'s The Girls Next Door reality show.
