We’re sad to report that Daria Nicolodi has passed away. The Italian actress and writer died in Rome this past week. She was 70 years old.
Nicolodi co-wrote 1977’s horror classic Suspiria with Dario Argento, to whom she was married at the time, in addition to doing uncredited story work on his 1980 film Inferno. She also starred in a number of the director’s films, including Deep Red, Inferno, Tenebrae, Phenomena, Opera, and Mother of Tears.
Beyond Argento’s movies, Nicolodi is known for her role in Mario Bava’s 1977 film Shock. She also worked with writer-director Luigi Cozzi, starring in and co-writing the screenplay for his film Paganini Horror and doing uncredited writing work on The Black Cat, both released in 1989.
