Pia Zadora Biography

Home > Actresses > Z > Zadora, Pia > Biography

Birth Name: Pia Zadora
Born: 05/04/1953
Birth Place: New York City, New York, USA

Petite, energetic, her hair generally blonde and highly teased, with kewpie-doll looks and mannerisms to match, Zadora became the focus of an incredible barrage of publicity engineered with the purpose of making her a multimedia sensation. Starring vehicles such as "Butterfly" (1981) and "The Lonely Lady" (1983), though, failed with both critics and the public and her surprise win at the Golden Globes as most promising newcomer of the year was enough to almost sabotage the reputation of the award and lead to an investigation. These days Zadora, having attracted enough attention to fuel a career as a "personality", is content to successfully perform in an occasional concert, make cameo appearances in campy feature films and occasional appearances on stage.
