Zaira Zoccheddu and her unforgettable role in the amazing La croce dalle sette pietre (1987):

Zaira Zoccheddu seems to have had a strange career. She seems to have appeared in quite a few films in a supporting role, often naked, or exploited - such as KAPUT LAGER, LA CASA DELL'AMORE (I think this is her first film), in the main credits of THE CROSS OF SEVEN STONES. But in between she seems to have made small appearances - unusually uncredited. Johan spotted her in CALIGULA, and she is uncredited in the English language version of SOTTO IL VESTITO NIENTE (NOTHING UNDERNEATH) but credited on the Italian version. She is also in a small role in LA SVASTIKA NEL VENTRE - as one of the prisoners forced to undress.
Has anyone spotted any other small roles which she appears. She also is only in one of the Annuario Degli Attori (well, in my collection) from 1978-9 where she is credited as Zaira Zajer. Appararantly she was Miss Italy in 1974 yet ut doesn't seem to have increased her fame or her stardom and when she appeared in girlie magazines it was never really mentioned if at all.

Alias: Zaira Zoltan.

We (my co-author and myself) have identified about 35 Zaira's roles, included one hardcore performance (a couple of explicit hand-jobs). We also have considered her "fotoromanzi". We'll publish a chapter on her in our forthcoming book devoted to the birth of Italian porno cinema. By the way, she wasn't Miss Italy but nonetheless she took part in the 1975 Miss Europe contest. Her first appeareance was definitely not in the Polselli movie you mentioned.

When the book will be going to be published I'll inform this forum too.
By the way, the CALIGULA in which Zaira appears is not the famous one directed by Tinto Brass, nor Massaccesi's almost homonymous film, nor Mattei's, but the irrelevant sexy-comedy directed by Roberto Bianchi Montero (LE CALDE NOTTI DI CALIGOLA, of which a hard version had been made too, where Zaira yet does not perform explicit sex).

She is a very fascinating actress with a very bizarre career. A few big roles here and there but a lot of small uncredited parts too.

For example she was a scared woman during the robbery in Roma a mano armata (1976):

And the masturb*ting woman in Sotto il vestito niente (1985):

And a similar small role in Hercules (1983) but I am unable to post a picture from that film at the moment.

It is funny that in the pictorials and fotoromanzi she did for Gin Fizz she was credited as Zaira Zoltan! Maybe she got the name from Zoltan, Hound of Dracula (1978)?

But she did have many different hairstyles. She looked very interesting with blonde hair...

I have just moved house so all my Annuario degli Attori are in boxes. I will try and find it soon.
The Annuario where she is credited as Zaira Zajer is from 1978-79 (with a red cover). I will try and find it soon.

And yes I read that she was a hairdresser in her article/photoshoot in Playmen from the early 80's. Interesting if that's true (because Playmen, etc made up so many fictions to go with their pictorials, interviews)...
