Louisa emigrated to the USA in the late- ‘50s or early ‘60s, during the political revolution in the country; she boarded a ship and remained hidden during the oceanic journey that took her to New York, where she assumed the name Louisa Moritz, after becoming inspired by the name of Hotel St. Moritz.

She attended the University of West Los Angeles, and also graduated from Yale University, obtaining a law degree. During her studies, she won the American Jurisprudence Bancroft Whitney Prize for Contracts. After obtaining her degree, Louisa took the bar exam and passed the test at her first attempt. However, as of 2015, her license has been suspended by the California State Bar, and Louisa is ineligible to practice law.

Her career in the entertainment industry started in the mid- the 60s, when she was selected for the TV commercial for Ultra-Ban spray deodorant. After that, she appeared in several other commercial ads, including one for American Motors, for which she won a Clio Award and an Andy Award. Meantime, she also studied acting under acting coach Lee Strasberg at the Actor’s Studio.

She was cast in her first film role in “Assignment: Female” in 1966, but came to prominence as Mail Girl three years later in the variety show hosted by Joe Namath. She continued to build her popularity throughout the ‘70s, and with roles as Gina Moretti in the film “The Man from O.R.G.Y” (1970), then as Candy Lee in the TV series “Love, American Style” (1971-1972), and as Rose in Milos Forman’s Academy Award- winning drama “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, next to Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher and Michael Berryman, only increased her net worth to a large degree.

Louisa continued successfully into the second half of the decade, with roles in such productions as “The Happy Hooker Goes to Washington” (1977), “Up in Smoke” (1978), and “Portrait of a Stripper” (1979). Thanks to her good looks, Louisa was often cast as a dumb blonde or a hooker in films, but she stated that she never saw a problem with it, as any role is a good role. She remained active as an actress until 2000, but the number of new roles reduced, and from the start of the ‘80s until her retirement from acting, Louisa only appeared in a dozen productions.

Although it was a small number, she still made several notable appearances, including as Carmela in the romantic comedy “The Last American Virgin” (1982), then “Chained Heat” (1983), starring Linda Blair, John Vernon and Sybil Danning, and appeared in the comedy “The Independent” in 2000, which was her last role.

After retiring, she tried herself in real estate; she bought a hotel in Beverly Hills which she renamed to Beverly Hills St. Moritz, and also made several other real estate investments, which only further increased her wealth.

Back in 2014, she joined several other women in suing Bill Cosby for sexual harassment, claiming that the successful entertainer made inappropriate actions towards her in the early ‘70s when she was a guest in “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson”.

Regarding her personal life, Louisa was briefly married to Alan Fine from 1979 to 1980, otherwise she has remained officially single. She still lives in Los Angeles.
