One popular misconception about Laura Gemser often reported in articles about the actress is that she was born Dutch, which is not true. This came from writers' confusion between Laura Gemser (star of the "Emanuelle nera" films) and Dutch-born actress 'Sylvia Kristel' (qv) (star of the film _Emmanuelle (1974)_ (qv)) Laura Gemser was born in Java, Indonesia.After more than a decade a sex symbol, Gemser turned to costume design for mainstream film. Ms. Gemser provided costume design and coordination for the 1990 film Troll 2.
