Early Life

Golino was born in an artistic family but never imagined herself as an actor when she was younger, instead aspiring to be a cardiologist, but everything changed when she was 14.

Golino’s modeling career began with assignments in Milan, Athens, Los Angeles, and London, where he appeared in commercials and modeled swimwear and trousers. In 1983, her uncle was called by filmmaker Lina Wetmuller, who was looking for a young girl for her film “A Joke of Destiny” – Golino auditioned and was cast.
