After success as a model in Sweden and going on to work as an actress in Hollywood, Ekberg was selected by Fellini to play Sylvia opposite Marcello Mastroianni. She is perhaps most remembered for the scene where she frolics in the Trevi fountain.
Fellini later cast her in three more of his films including Intervista in 1987 where she played herself in a reunion scene with Mastroianni. She said of Fellini: "It was I who made Fellini famous, not the other way around".
She currently lives outside Rome and appears occassionally on television talk-shows.
