Anna Falchi (Italian pronunciation: [ˈanna ˈfalki]; born Anna Kristiina Palomäki on 22 April 1972 in Tampere, Finland) is an Italian-Finnish model and film actress.

Career[edit]

Anna Falchi was born Anna Kristiina Palomäki in Tampere, Finland, the daughter of an Italian father and Finnish mother. In 1978, at the age of six, she moved to Italy with her family. She started her career as a model. She first appeared on television in a commercial for an Italian bank in 1992.[1] The ad starred Paolo Villaggio, and was directed by the celebrated Federico Fellini. This helped her launch a film career, starting with Nel continente nero (On the Dark Continent) in 1993.

She appeared in many films since, including the 1994 fantasy movie Desideria e l'Anello del Drago, the 1997 film La principessa e il povero and the 2005 comedy Nessun messaggio in segreteria. She has also been a popular television personality, hosting various specials on Italian television.

She is less known in the English speaking world. Some know her as the lead female in a film called Dellamorte Dellamore, which was released in the U.S. as Cemetery Man.
