...e venne il tempo di uccidere (1968).jpg

Lina Franchi, for over twenty years, was one of the most active extras of the Italian cinema. Characterized by a particularly intense feline gaze and sturdy body, she was always preferred for interpreting roles of peasants, prostitutes, housewives. In the few showy roles in which she has participated, she has always shown nice acting skills.

Orinoco: prigioniere del sesso (1980) as Prisoner who serves food

And here is Lina as One of the prisoners in Femmine infernali (1979)
Femmine infernali (1979) 0.jpg
Femmine infernali (1979) 1.jpg

This was filmed together with Orinoco: prigioniere del sesso (1980), but Lina has a much bigger role in this one. She is in several scenes and even in a fight with some of the other women. A great role for Lina!
