Daliah Lavi (born Daliah Lewinbuk on October 12, 1942) is an Israeli actress, singer and model. Born in Shavei Zion, she studied ballet in Stockholm, where she appeared in her first film: HemsÃ¶borna (1955). Returning to Israel, her career took off properly in 1960, when she started appearing in a large number of European and American productions. Conversant in several languages, she has been in German, French, Italian, Spanish and English-language films.
Lavi's film appearances include Mario Bava's gothic classic La Frusta e il corpo (1963), and the first Matt Helm movie The Silencers (1966). However, her most famous role is probably as 'The Detainer/007' in Casino Royale (1967) opposite Woody Allen.
With the decline of her film career, Lavi began a successful schlager singing career in Germany, with hits such as "Oh, wann kommst du?" and "Willst du mit mir geh'n?".
