Sirpa Lane, born Sirpa Salo (1952–1999) was a Finnish actress known for her work in B-movies of the 1970s, primarily erotic and exploitation films. Lane was discovered by British photographer and film-maker David Hamilton, who was known for his soft focus and grainy style erotica. She worked with Roger Vadim, who spoke of her as the "next Bardot" (perhaps not without reason). She died of HIV/AIDS.[1]


Lane was born in Turku, Finland in 1952. She made her debut in the English film Fluff (1974), directed by Robert Paget. She had a relationship with Gilles Raysse, a business manager. She died of HIV/AIDS at the age of 46 in Formentera, Spain in 1999.[2]
