Italian actress Lorella De Luca has died, aged 73.

She passed away on 9 January (14), after spending years battling a brain tumour which cost the star her sight.

De Luca began acting as a teenager and made her film debut in Federico Fellini's 1955 film Il Bidone opposite Oscar-winner Broderick Crawford, while her breakthrough role came a year later (56) in Dino Risi's classic comedy Poveri ma belli (Poor, But Handsome).

She later appeared in a number of Spaghetti Westerns, including A Pistol for Ringo and its sequel The Return of Ringo, under the name Hally Hammond. Both films were directed by her future husband Duccio Tessari, who also worked with her on movies including Una Voglia da Morire (1965) and Kiss Kiss... Bang Bang (1966).

She retired from acting in the 1990s following her husband's death.
