Character Bio from Farewell My Life by Cynthia Sally Haggard: ANGELINA

Angelina is:

Angelina (played by Gina Lollobrigida)
  • 33 years old
  • Grace’s Mother
  • Colorful
  • Fiery Temper
  • Loathes Mr. Russell
  • Former member of the Demimonde
  • Lives a life that requires her to fib…

Demimonde is a euphemism for all the people who weren’t “respectable” such as dancers, sex-workers, prostitutes…and actresses. In the French, it means “half-world.”

I am very fond of Angelina, although she isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. I like strong women who can stand up to men…and rebel!
