Biography and Career

Stunningly comely and slinky brunette Lina Romay rates highly as one of the most bold, sensuous and enticing actresses to ever appear with tremendous frequency in a large volume of European horror and exploitation features made from the early 70s to the present day.

Romay was born as Rosa Maria Almirall. Her cinematic pseudonym was taken from a singer/actress in mambo king Xavier Cugat's band in the 40s. Following graduation from high school Romay studied the arts, married actor/photographer Raymond Hardy (they later divorced), and began acting in stage productions. Lina first met infamous and prolific maverick Spanish independent filmmaker Jess Franco in the early 70s. Romay and Franco eventually became a couple. Although they have never officially tied the knot, Romay is Franco's common law wife.

Lina made her film debut as a gypsy girl in "The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein." She had small parts in a few other Franco movies before playing more substantial lead and co-starring roles. Despite her lack of formal training, Lina nonetheless naturally projects an extremely brazen, earthy and uninhibited screen presence that's both alluring and captivating in equal measure.

Lina's most memorable roles include the voracious Countess Irina Karlstein in "Female Vampire," brutalized innocent Maria in the sensationally sleazy "Barbed Wire Dolls," vicious top con Juana in the similarly scuzzy "Ilsa, the Wicked Warden;" especially inspired in a dual part in "Doriana Gray," and bawdy prostitute Marika in the gloomy "Jack the Ripper."

Romay has posed for nude pictorials in such men's magazines as "Cinema X" and "Sex Stars System." In addition to acting, Lina has also worked on a handful of films as a writer, director, producer and assistant editor. In real life Lina Romay is the total radical opposite of her wild and outrageous screen persona: she's a very quiet, soft-spoken and self-effacing woman who usually dresses in frumpy clothes.
