Sirpa Lane

Sirpa Lane (April 5, 2015 Turku-April 5, 1999 Formentera) also known as Sirpa Salo, Shirpa Lane or Syrpa Lane was a Finnish actor.

She died as a result of hiv/aids.

Sirpa Lane began her acting career in the late 1960s, appearing in a number of European films with erotic and controversial themes. Her most famous role came in 1974, when she starred in the French-Italian co-production "The Beast." The film, directed by Walerian Borowczyk, caused a scandal due to its explicit content and sexual themes, but is now considered a cult classic.

Lane continued to work in film throughout the 1970s and 80s, primarily in Europe, appearing in films such as "Diary of a Nymphomaniac" and "The Fruit is Ripe." However, after a few unsuccessful attempts to break into Hollywood, she retired from acting in the early 1990s.

Sadly, Lane's life was cut short by illness. She contracted HIV in the late 1980s, and after struggling with the disease for several years, passed away on her 53rd birthday in 1999 on the Spanish island of Formentera.
