Personal Quote:

My parents never pushed me to be an actress. You can come from a family of actors, and sometimes there have been families that grow you up as an actor, but this wasn't my situation. It's very important to find your own way because it's something you then have to confront yourself. See more »


Her favorite movie is L'anima gemella (2002). See more »
