Those who are more attentive will certainly have recognized this magnetic cat eyes, one of her trademarks and one that has made her one of the most admired TV stars of the last few decades. Staring straight into the photographer’s lens, this beautiful little girl already seems to know how to charm those who look at her, and she was to prove it a few years later. Do you understand who we’re talking about? Born in Rome in 1964, of Ukrainian descent, made her debut in the entertainment world thanks to her high school friend Vittoria Squitieri, daughter of director Pasquale and historical companion of Claudia Cardinale. The man entrusts her with the role of young Claretta Petacci in the 1984 film of the same name and wants her back in the TV series Naso di cane the following year. This allows her to take part in other productions, collaborating with Dario Argento and Lamberto Bava and in the theater with Enrico Montesano. Other films from this period include Carlo Verdone’s Compagni di scuola and, above all, Ricky Tognazzi’s Piccoli equivoci, for which he will win the prize both the Silver Ribbon and the David di Donatello. But for the general public, she remains the lucky charm in some very famous sisal commercials of the 1990s and most notably one of the interpreters of the hugely successful fiction The beauty of women. In addition, she has acted in numerous well-known films and cinepanettoni in recent years, without neglecting her great passion for the theater, which she cultivates hand in hand and which she still pursues to this day.
