Marisa Pavan (born Maria Luisa Pierangeli; 19 June 1932) is an Italian-born actress who first became famous as the twin sister of film star Pier Angeli (Anna Maria Pierangeli) before achieving film stardom on her own. Her breakthrough came in the film The Rose Tattoo (1955) as Anna Magnani's daughter; her role was first assigned to her twin, who then became unavailable to play the part. Their performances earned an nomination for Best Supporting Actress for Pavan and a win of the Academy Award for Best Actress for Magnani, which Pavan accepted on her behalf. Both Pavan (Best Supporting Actress) and Magnani (Best Actress) won Golden Globe Awards for their performances in the film.
Pavan co-starred in films such as Diane (1956), The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit (1956), The Midnight Story (1957) and John Paul Jones (1959). She also played Abishag in King Vidor's biblical epic Solomon and Sheba (1959). Her later films included A Slightly Pregnant Man (1973), Antoine and Sebastian (1974) and the television miniseries The Moneychangers (1976). In 1985, she portrayed the contract role of Chantal Dubujak on "Ryan's Hope".
