Biography

Née à Messine en 1962 d'un père d'origine grecque et d'une mère italienne, elle est couronnée Miss Italie à Sant'Eufemia d'Aspromonte en 1977. Elle participe ensuite au concours de Miss Univers en 1981.

Elle débute comme actrice en 1980 dans la comédie Sucre, miel et piment (Zucchero, miele e peperoncino) de Sergio Martino et obtient son premier crédit dans la comédie Bello di mamma de Rino Di Silvestro la même année. En 1982 et 1983, elle joue plusieurs rôles secondaires dans des comédies de Castellano et Pipolo et Sergio Martino. Elle obtient également par deux fois des premiers rôles dans des films de séries B de science-fiction post-apocalyptique. Pour Enzo G. Castellari, elle tourne aux côtés de Fred Williamson, George Eastman et Thomas Moore dans Les Nouveaux Barbares (I nuovi barbari) et pour Sergio Martino dans 2019 après la chute de New York (2019 - Dopo la caduta di New York) avec pour partenaires George Eastman, Michael Sopkiw , Valentine Monnier et Paolo Maria Scalondro . En 1989, elle intègre le casting de la série télévisée Oceano et obtient un rôle secondaire pour Luigi Magni.

Dans les années 1990, elle alterne les rôles au cinéma et à la télévision. Au cinéma, en 1990, elle joue dans la comédie L'avaro de Tonino Cervi, l'adaptation de la pièce de Molière L'Avare à la sauce italienne. Elle joue ensuite pour Salvatore Maira, Luciano Manuzzi, Jerry Calà et Steven Hilliard Stern et donne la réplique en 1994 à Richard Anconina et Isabelle Candelier dans le drame Coma de Denys Granier-Deferre réalisé d'après le roman éponyme de Frédéric Dard.

A la télévision, elle apparaît dans plusieurs téléfilms, comme dans le récit historique Intrigues impériales (Young Catherine) de Michael Anderson qui narre l'ascension au trône de Catherine II de Russie et dans lequel elle incarne la comtesse Vorontsov.

Elle débute au théâtre en 1996 sous la direction d'Antonello Aglioti dans une pièce de Barbara Alberti .

Dans les années 2000, elle se fait plus rare.
