When your father is Dario Argento, one of the most iconic horror directors of the past 20th century, it’s a safe bet that you’re daughter would star in at least a couple of genre films herself. Born Asia Aria Maria Vittoria Rossa Argento on September 25, 1975 in Rome, Lazio, Italy, Miss Argento has appeared in 5 of her father’s films to date: Trauma (1993), The Stendhal Syndrome (1996), The Phantom of the Opera (1998), Mother of Tears, itself the third film in the Three Mothers trilogy that includes Suspiria (1977) and Inferno (1980); and Dracula 3D (2011). She has also appeared in George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead (2005), Sofia Coppola‘s Marie Antoinette (2006) and XXX (2002). She is a director, actress, singer, model and producer. Our hats and apparently our shirts go off to the lovely Asia Argento as she is the Scream Queen of the Month for December, 2011!
