Simona Tabasco alias Lucia from The White Lotus has become a star

Simona Tabasco has become famous outside of Italy as Lucia.

Does not contain spoilers about TWL.

The role of the local, perhaps slightly naive sex worker Lucia at the hotel The White Lotus in Sicily sends the Italian Simona Tabasco (born in 1994) to Hollywood. This week the actor from Naples signed with American WME alias William Morris Endeavor; the world’s largest talent agency.

Apart from the international boom, Simona is fond of the charming, mysterious escort girl she plays.

– Lucia starts by wanting to dominate men. She wants to take control of her current situation by exploiting men, the Italian tells Cosmopolitan.
