Profile Bio Text
Asia Aria Anna Maria Vittoria Rossa Argento (born 20 September 1975) is an Italian actress and director. Asia Argento started acting at the age of nine playing a small part in a film by Sergio Citti. She also had a small part in a film written and produced by Dario Argento in, The Church (1989), when she was 14, and Trauma (1993), when she was 18. She also had her first nude scene during Trauma. She received the David di Donatello (Italy`s version of Hollywood`s Academy Award) for Best Actress in 1994 for her performance in Perdiamoci di vista!, and again in 1996 for Compagna di viaggio, which also earned her a Grolla d`oro award. In 1998, Argento began appearing in English-language movies, such as B. Monkey and New Rose Hotel, with Christopher Walken. Argento has proven her ability to work in multiple languages, adding French to the list of languages in which she has performed, with a role in 1994`s La Reine Margot. That same year, she made her first foray into directing, calling the shots behind the short films Prospettive and A ritroso. In 1996, she directed a documentary on her father, and in 1998 a second one on Abel Ferrara, which won her the Rome Film Festival Award. She directed and wrote her first movie called Scarlet Diva (2000), which was co-produced by Dario Argento. Four years later she directed her second movie, The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things (2004), based on a book by JT LeRoy, the pen name of Laura Albert, this time in the United States. According to a Paris Review interview with Laura Albert, Argento and Savannah Knoop, who played the role of JT`s public persona, became lovers.
Besides Italian, she also speaks fluent Russian and English. She can also speak French, which she learned for her role in Les Morsures de L’Aube. Argento has been romantically linked with Vincent Gallo, Sergio Rubini, Michael Pitt, and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. Her first child, Anna Lou, was born on 20 June 2001.
