Magali Amadei

Magali Amadei has created a unique identity for herself, balancing the demands of modeling with those of her thriving acting career.

Born and raised in Nice, France, Amadei was discovered at 16 years old while studying ballet. She began her career as a model a year later in New York City. Amadei has appeared on the pages and covers of virtually every major fashion publication in the world.

Comparisons to Sophia Loren and Ava Gardner prompted her to take acting lessons and pursue the craft as a serious career. The exotic beauty has starred in two off-Broadway plays, A Matter of Dispute and Fiesta Ware. These roles led to a brief appearance in the feature film The Wedding Planner, starring Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Lopez. Amadei then landed a recurring role in the HBO series, The Mind of a Married Man.

While filming House of D, Amadei was concurrently filming the action-comedy Taxi, playing a Brazilian bank robber whose gorgeous, fearless, sexy all girl gang is on he loose in Manhattan eluding our heroes, played by Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon. The film is being produced by Luc Besson, and is based on his 1998 hit French film.
