Vera Drudi was an actress who has made her ugliness a merit. In fact, thanks to this "endowment", she has worked extensively in Italian cinema, often impersonating the role of the old hag, the witch, up to that of the zombie. In the left photo above, she's make-up and she wears the costume adopted in L'orribile segreto del dottor Hitchcock (1962).

Vera Drudi was identified by Johan Melle in 2008.
