Roberto Maurizio Coatti was born in Bologna. He was intersexed, but looked like a normal boy, until he stated to developed as a woman after puberty. She took her name from Eva Kent in the Diabolik comics, and Harold Robbins, and thought it to be more cute with an apostrophe.
She has been a model and a singer. In 1977, using the name Cassandra, she recorded the disco classic Disco Panther. It remains unclear just which intersex condition applies, and there are rumours that she did have genital surgery, perhaps in 1998 or as early as 1991, although Eva denies this.
She did reveal her penis in the films Evaman (1980), and Mascara (1989, as did Romy Haag), where she played a drag performer, but never since.
In two Hercules films, Ercole in 1983 and Adventure dell'incredibile Ercole in 1984, she played Dedalos as a female, although in Greek myth the character is a man. She played a transsexual in Belle al Bar in 1994.
She has appeared in 19 films, and also on Italian television program Il bello delle donne (The Beautiful Women) in 2002.
Her legal name is still Roberto Coatti. Eva Robin’s Wikipedia page is here, her Internet Movie Database here. Annie Richards “Fabulous Eva” Second Type Women interview on YouTube is here.
