Biography of naked Olivia Hussey
Olivia Hussey is an actress from England. Hussey landed the role of Juliet in Franco Zeffirelli’s adaptation of Romeo and Juliet after performing on stage in London. Her performance won her a Golden Globe and a Davido di Donatello Award, as well as international recognition. In 1974, she played Jess Bradford, the main character in the cult horror film Black Christmas. This performance, as well as her subsequent roles in horror films, earned her the nickname “scream queen”. She starred in John Guillermin’s adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile and again with Zeffirelli in the miniseries Jesus of Nazareth as Mary, the mother of Jesus. During the 1980s, she appeared in a number of foreign films, including the Japanese film The Picture Virus and the Australian horror film The Turks Shoot. She starred in two made-for-TV horror movies, Psycho IV: The Beginning and Stephen King, both of which premiered in 1990.
Olivia Hussey played Juliet in Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet at the age of 15, Younger Girls Raise Romantic Fantasies (1968). Her portrayal of one of the most iconic characters ever written in the English language earned her a Golden Globe and two consecutive Donatello Awards for Best Actor (the Italian equivalent of the Oscars), an unusual triumph for an actor who directed only three films.
Olivia may owe her “title” to her “exotic” combination; her father was Argentinian and her mother was of English and Scottish descent, making her one of the most beautiful women in the world. Her father, Andreas Osuna, alias Isvaldo Riba, a famous Argentine opera and tango singer, was her father figure, while her English mother encouraged her early inclinations toward the performing arts. She traveled to England with her mother and younger brother when she was seven years old, where she spent the next five years attending an acting school. After that she played “Jenny” in “Jean Brodie”. Zeffirelli first noticed her in this play. She chose Olivia after auditioning over 500 young women for the role of Juliet, and the rest, they say, is history.
She has returned to work after taking a well-deserved break to raise her young daughter India Joy and has starred in two films back to back. The first, El Grito (2000) (known in the United States as Blood Proof), was filmed in Mexico City and required her to perform the role bilingually, using her native Spanish. Olivia stars as an urban nudist in Judy Hecht Dumante’s comedy Pancake Heaven (2007), written and directed by Sundance Film Festival winner Judy Hecht Dumante.
Olivia has just fulfilled a lifelong ambition to play Mother Teresa of Calcutta in Mother Teresa of Calcutta, shot entirely in Sri Lanka and Italy. Sisters of the Missionaries of Charity of Mother Teresa welcomed her speech with open arms when it was screened for them in Italy.

The British actress fell in love with director Franco Zeffirelli, whom she considered a unique genius of the movement. Reality shattered dreams: Franco turned out to be gay. Meanwhile, on screen in Romeo, Leonard Whiting was trying to woo Olivia, but his chances were slim.
Following Romeo and Juliet, the young woman lived as a hermit in her mother’s house. A few months later, the world learned that she married American musician Dean Paul Martin. Alexander, the couple’s son, followed in his mother’s footsteps and started an acting career.
The woman divorced in 1978. She neglected her acting profession for a long time, but after the breakup, she felt the need to resume it.
Soon after, he began a new relationship with Akira Fuse, a Japanese singer, and they married in 1980. They had a son Maximilian. The couple decided to part and separate because life between the two nations was not going well.
The actress continued her search for personal fulfillment. Finally, in 1989, she met David Glen Eisley, an American rock musician and actor who had long admired Olivia’s Juliet. They tied the knot in 1991.
The last film of the actress was released in 2015, but there are reports that she may appear in new projects in the near future.
