Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A darkly beauteous Mediterranean actress who has performed in films primarily in France, Italy and Spain, Galiena is fluent in four languages and has also appeared onstage in Paris and Washington, DC. She began appearing in films in the mid-1980s, though the dreadful US-Italian adventure "Hotel Colonial" (1986) did not help her career much. Galiena worked primarily in Italy for the next few years, and though she has continued to play prominent supporting roles, she graduated to leads in Fulvio Wetzl's first film, the disturbing, reflexive horror thriller "Rorret" (1988). That same year, she also played a leading role in the French-made drama "La Travestie".
