Giorgio Ardisson, best known as George Ardisson (31 December 1931 – 11 December 2014), was an Italian actor.

Life and career[edit]

Born in Turin, Ardisson debuted in a minor role in Mauro Bolognini's 1959 film Arrangiatevi!.[1][2] After several secondary roles in sword-and-sandal and adventure films, he gained a huge success playing Agent 3S3 in the eurospy films Agent 3S3: Passport to Hell and Agent 3S3, Massacre in the Sun.[2] According to director Sergio Sollima he was chosen for this role thanks to his physical appearance that made him credible as American.[3]

Later Ardisson starred in several more spy films and spanned different genres, including spaghetti western and Italo-horror films.
