Born Doris Kristanel, Krista Nell debuted in French cinema, then moved to Rome where became a minor starlet in Italian genre films, especially Spaghetti Westerns and commedie sexy all'italiana.[1][2] Nell went on to star in such films as Ivanhoe, the Norman Swordsman,[3] and Spaghetti Westerns suchs as Paid in Blood, Blindman, Kill Django... Kill First and Django and Sartana Are Coming... It's the End.

Nell's final film was The Bloodsucker Leads the Dance in which she was supposed to be the main actress, but, because of her physical conditions, she turned in a secondary role.[1][2] Nell died of leukemia at age 28 on June 19, 1975. She was the companion of actor Ettore Manni.[2]
