Gegia was born Francesca Carmela Assunta Antonaci in Puglia, Italy in 1959, and we sure are glad she decided to shorten her name! Gegia rolls off the tongue much easier. She got her start in acting at age 20, and has nearly thirty credits to her name in the thirty-plus years since then, though she is still best known for her work early in her career in such films as Bomber (1982) and Champagne in Paradiso (1983). Gegia's juggiest role of all came in her very first film, Amanti miei (1979), where she first showed her shimmies while lifting up her shirt to dance for some guy! She also lets loose with her hooch and heinie later in the film, giving her man a wake-up call he'll never forget! Gegia will have you crying out "Mamma Mia!"
