Fernando Piazza in Le prigioniere dell'isola del diavolo (1962)

Le prigioniere dell'isola del Diavolo (1961).jpg

Fernando was a light-skinned black actor active in Italian films throughout the sixties. He retired from acting in the 70's, moving into actor management and production. Fernando had substantial roles in Le prigioniere dell'isola del Diavolo (1961) and Boom (1968), from which he is identified, but all his other roles were small uncredited parts.

Here are some further images of Fernando in Le prigioniere dell'isola del diavolo. This was by far his biggest role, and is notable for an interracial romance between Fernando and Margaret Rose Kiel, which must have been quite daring in 1962. I am not certain whether Fernando was credited in the Italian credits for this film, online sources indicate that he was, but every print that I have found has had the same French credits which only list 6 actors.

Impossible to be certain without a sharper image, but I'm pretty sure this is Fernando on the left, in Agente 3S3 massacro al sole (1966) as Soldier

Fernando Piazza later abandoned his acting career and began to work as a casting agent. In the yearly Annuario degli attori books, the agencies or agents representing the different actors are listed and by browsing through the Annuario degli attori 1984-85, I can say that Fernando specialized in respenting foreign actors and English-speaking voice dubbers.

Here are a few of the notable actors he represented during 1984-85
Annuario 84 - Edmund Purdom.jpg
Annuario 84 - Umberto Raho.jpg
Annuario 84 - Stelio Candelli.jpg
Annuario 84 - Magda Konopka.jpg
Annuario 84 - Iris Peynado.jpg
Annuario 84 - John Karlsen.jpg
