Incontrera, Annabella

Annabella Incontrera on the set of "Il ritorno di Sabata" (1971)
Annabella Incontrera was a quite active actress in the genre Italian movies of the 1960s and '70s. She was most famous for her "maneater" or "vamp" roles.

Biographical note
Annabella Incontrera was born on June 11, 1943 in Saronno (Varese). She entered in the world of entertainment after having attended the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome, but without having completed its studies[1].

In the 1969 she married Guglielmo Biraghi, film critic of the newspaper "Il messaggero", from whom she has a son, but the marriage ends soon in separation.

On the silver screen she usually plays not important roles, and rarely manages to emerge as a true protagonist; it is the case of minor productions such as Operazione Goldsnake (1966) by Ferdinando Baldi and in A suon di lupara (1968) by Luigi Petrini. She appears in the western vein, in such titles as Un poker di pistole (1967) by Giuseppe Vari and Quella carogna di Frank Mitraglia (1968) by John Berry.

In the 1969 she plays a lesbian role in the thriller A doppia faccia by Riccardo Freda. The little notoriety that gets from that "scandalous" role, favors her in numerous films participations, in which usually she interprets the prototype of the malicious lesbian (Roma bene - 1971 by Carlo Lizzani, Sette scialli di seta gialla - 1972 by Sergio Pastore, Perché quelle strane gocce di sangue sul corpo di Jennifer? - 1972 by Giuliano Carmineo). Other times she had the role of the femme fatale, like in Amore formula 2 (1970) by Mario Amendola.

She also appears on some photonovels ("Sogno", "GrandHotel") and on TV, where she worked in various series, of which the most famous was L'Eneide (1971) by Franco Rossi. Her film career ended in 1980, after about thirty films, with the thriller Enigma by José Ramón Larraz.

In 1998, she revealed that she was Geoffrey Robinson's lover of Tony Blair's government for twenty-five years[2, 3]. From the 90s she suffering from osteoporosis and using a wheelchair[4].

A big part in the cult Giallo Perchè quelle strane gocce di sangue sul corpo di Jennifer? (1972) as Sheila.
Here she plays a lesbian woman who allusively tries to seduce the protagonists, Edwige Fenech and Paola Quattrini. Her role is very nice and important and as usual her malicious and aristocratic charm is very well expressed.
