About Me


Thanks for stopping by & welcome to my little world. 🙂

I’m Umberta, an Italian by birth, French by adoption & Australian by dreaming,  girl.

I live in Paris, on the Montmartre hills, with Mick, my French hubby.

The Secret Life of an Actress is my little slice of web.

I firstly created it to tell the up & downs of the actress life – everyone only imagines the glitters & not the downsides.

I didn’t know much about blogging at that time – not that today I’m a professional, there’s still a lot I can learn 😉 I began to discover this unknown world full of enthusiastic people sharing their passions. I started reading other blogs. Talk to bloggers. And before I realized, I was sharing my passions too.

So in addition to stories related to my acting career, you’ll find here a lot of travels, my favorite places in Paris & the surroundings and all the nice little things in everyday life, as I think happiness is in the little things & if you can enjoy them you”ll always be happy 🙂

It’s kinda difficult to write an about me page… I don’t know exactly what am I supposed to say, but to give you an idea of who I am, here the things I love most in life – not necessarily in this order 😉

  • Sunsets
  • The ocean
  • Surfing
  • Dancing (I do ballet & modern’ jazz since I was a kid)
  • Sailing
  • Living on a boat
  • Exploring the world with my love
  • Driving on a beautiful road, with the music high & the windows down
  • Walking on the beach
  • Amazing, natural landscapes
  • Chocolate
  • Wild animals
  • A good cocktail in a bar with a beautiful view

…& of course acting, preferably in front of a camera, but I do play in theatre as well.

Last, but not least, I love meeting new people, so please don’t hesitate to say hi! 🙂
