Character actress, Rafaela Ottiano, was born on Mar 4, 1888 in Venice, Italy. Ottiano died at the age of 54 on Aug 18, 1942 in East Boston, MA .


Rafaela Ottiano was an Italian actress who came to America and played dangerously hysterical characters. Her menials, from maids to housekeepers, were not to be relied upon, and she was a formidable adversary for Mae West in "She Done Him Wrong". She died from a heart attack.
