#36 Luciana Paluzzi

Curvaceous redhead Lucianna Paluzzi will probably always be associated with the character of Fiona Volpe, the bad girl in the Bond flick Thunderball. That said, she has 80-some other credits – as well as an active career that spanned over 25 years. 

I also don’t think Luciana ever saw a genre she didn’t like. She’s done spy, war, western, peplum, comedies, soaps, beach flicks, action, sci fi, softcore, horror, crime, babes behind bars, TV … Did I leave anything out?
