Gisella Arden was another stunningly beautiful actress who achieved some degree of success, but somehow never quite rose to the upper levels of stardom. Her earliest known role is from 1959, and within a few years she was playing female leads and second leads in a selection of B-grade peplums, swashbucklers and eurospies. Like many actresses of her generation she disappeared from the screen at the end of the sixties, reappearing in a handful of TV movies in the 80's before vanishing again, this time for good.
Various websites claim her real name is Gisella Sardello, though with no way of knowing where this information originated this must be treated as unconfirmed. No other biographical details are known about her.
All her known roles were credited ones, but her credits are fairly spread out so I wouldn't rule out the possibility of some uncredited or unknown appearances being found.
