Born in Shavei Zion, Palestine, she studied ballet in Stockholm, Sweden, where she appeared in her first film: Hemsöborna (1955). Returning to Israel, her career took off properly in 1960, when she started appearing in a large number of European and American productions. Fluent in several languages, she has been in German, French, Italian, Spanish and English-language films.
Lavi’s film appearances include Vincente Minnelli’s Two Weeks in Another Town (1962), Mario Bava’s gothic classic La Frusta e il corpo (1963), the role of The Girl in Lord Jim, 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 gehn?”.
