She was discovered by a European film producer who got her roles in various French and Italian porno-films. In 1978 she made a crossover into Euro-trash such as women-in-prison flics, and a number of interesting films directed by Jesus Franco.
In 1986 she was arrested by the carabinieri in an brothel in Florence and tried to escape running naked throught the street. In 1987 she died from the complications from a road accident.
There is an alternate story that says that she is Magda Urtado from Rio, but that is the name of her character in Sadomania – it is also her mother’s maiden name and birthplace.
