[These daily posts will cover little known actors or people that have appeared in more recent films and TV series. Various degrees of information that I was able to find will be given and anything that you can add would be appreciated.]

Regina Elena Bisio was an Italian character actress. Born late in the 19th century, she didn’t make her film debut, at least according to the sources I can find, until 1960. She appeared in 50+ films and TV series until 1982.

Among thos films were three Spaghetti westerns “C'era una volta il West” (Once Upon a Time in the West) in 1968 as the old woman at the way station; “La collina degli stivali” (Boot Hill) in 1969 with Terence Hill and Bud Spencer as the old woman in bed and “E io lo dico a Zzzzorro!” “Eh? Who’s Afraid of Zorro” starring George Hilton in 1975 as a church goer.
