Biography

Emanuelle nera (série de films)
Après avoir posé pour divers magazines aux Pays-Bas, elle participe à quelques films érotiques comme Emmanuelle l'antivierge (Emmanuelle 2) de Francis Giacobetti avec Sylvia Kristel. C'est une autre Emanuelle (avec un seul « m », copyright oblige) qui lui apporte une reconnaissance internationale : Emanuelle nera qu'elle incarne dans une dizaine de films. Bien qu'elle apparaisse dans de nombreux films comportant des scènes pornographiques, ses rapports sont toujours simulés : les scènes les plus connues des Emanuelle nera étant interprétées par des doublures.


Gabriele Tinti
En plus de la gloire, la série des Emanuelle nera donne à l'actrice l'occasion de faire deux rencontres déterminantes. Une rencontre amoureuse d'abord pendant le tournage de Emanuelle nera en la personne de Gabriele Tinti, de dix-huit ans son aîné, qu'elle épouse en 1976. Le couple se retrouvera souvent à l'écran et restera uni jusqu’à ce qu'un infarctus emporte l'acteur le 12 novembre 1991.


Joe D'Amato
Laura Gemser aura ensuite une rencontre professionnelle avec Joe D'Amato avec qui l'actrice collaborera près de trente fois. Des titres comme Viol sous les tropiques (1977) ou La Nuit fantastique des morts-vivants (1980) sont aujourd'hui considérés comme des films érotiques/d'horreur italiens cultes. Elle participe à la période dite « érotico-exotique » du réalisateur, donnant la réplique à Dirce Funari et George Eastman, laissant le soin à Annj Goren, Lucía Ramírez et Mark Shannon de tourner les séquences hardcore.

Elle tourne ensuite dans Ator l'invincibile, inspiré par le succès de Conan le barbare. Le réalisateur, revenu à l'érotisme soft l'emploie encore dans trois films à succès avec Lilli Carati en vedette : L'Alcôve, Il Piacere et Voglia di guardare. Elle fera encore beaucoup de petites apparitions non créditées, travaillant en parallèle comme costumière.
