From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sandra Milo (born 11 March 1935) is an Italian actress. She is perhaps best known for her roles in Federico Fellini’s and Juliet of the Spirits, winning a Silver Ribbon award as best supporting actress for each film. In a 1997 interview Milo admitted to being Fellini’s real-life mistress at the time was shot; Carla, her character was the mistress of Guido, Fellini’s alter-ego in the film.

Until discovered by Fellini, Milo had mostly performed in comedies and melodramas. After she got married, she retired from her acting career. Although she was reluctant to make a comeback, Fellini convinced her to take on the role of the sexy, lightheaded mistress opposite Marcello Mastroianni in . The movie, which won universal acclaim, failed to change the public perception of her and although she was cast in Juliet of the Spirits, most of her following endeavors were second-rate films. She retired again from acting in 1968, only to make a second comeback in 1979. Her roles have shifted from that of the temptress to more stern middle-aged women.

In 2006/07 she toured Italy with the theatrical adaptation of 8 Women.
