Movie career

Romay was born in Barcelona. Following graduation from high school, she studied the arts, married actor/photographer Raymond Hardy (they later divorced), and began acting in stage productions. She began appearing in Jesus Franco's films from the time that they met in 1971. She appeared in more than a hundred feature films, most of them directed by Franco. The majority of their films together were in the adult film genre, but she has also starred in many horror, comedy and action/adventure films as well. Among the most famous of her cult horror movies are The Bare Breasted Countess(aka Female Vampire), Jack the Ripper, Exorcisms and Black Masses, and Barbed Wire Dolls.
