Sabrina Ferilli Biography
Sabrina Ferilli (born on June 28, 1964 in Rome) is an Italian actress mainly popular inside her homeland, where she is one of the most prevalent celebrities.


Sabrina Ferilliís father was speaker of Lazio's Regional Council of the Italian Communist Party. Sabrina was herself clearly influenced by her fatherís political orientation and activism, making no secret of her own leftism.

Sabrina Ferilli starred in several movies and TV series since the 1980s, as well as debuting in theater plays. While her popularity stems in large part from her movie acting, theater always remained her real passion.

Upon leaving school, Ferilli first was rejected by Rome's Experimental Cinematography Centre. She subsequently took elocution lessons and meanwhile managed to win bit parts in films, striving not to become embroiled in the trash s--y films for which her voluptuous body made her an obvious choice.

Sabrina Ferilli's career started when she worked in the renowned Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome and participated in the local drama circuit. Sabrina debuted in the TV movie Portami la Luna in 1986, and made her film debut the following year, in Rimini.

Ferilli's first lead part, which may be considered the role of her lifetime, was in Americano Rosso (The Red American) in 1990. It would subsequently bring about further leads. Her career was particularly propelled further by Marco Ferreriís Diario di un Vizio (Diary of a Maniac) in 1993, which won the Critics Award at the Berlin Film Festival.

Unfortunately, Sabrina Ferilli soon struggled to find good film roles and ended up appearing in second rate flicks. On Italian TV however, she became very popular, mainly due to Giorgio Capitani's hit series "Commesse" (1999).
