The London "Times" commenting on her role as follows: "Zen" (Rufus Sewell) need only walk into a Lavazzatore for B-movie-rank Gina Lollo to press her amples into his chest. An interview with one courtesan was conducted... With her in bra and fishnets, the interrogation interrupted by the command 'zip' as he dressed and undressed her". She also appeared as "Valentina" in Canale 5's series Distretto di polizia (2000). Cervi appeared as Bertha Mason in Cary Joji Fukunaga's film adaptation of Jane Eyre (2011).
