Mr Argento always had a semi non-existent relationship with Asia. He cast her in his movies, but outside of that they barely knew each other when she was younger. There's an infamous story (but it could be rumours) about him, Asia, and Abel Ferrara thrashing hotel rooms during a movie festival...

Outside of that she has stated that the fact that her father was present during the scene in "Phantom of the Opera" actually helped her out and made her feel less awkward (but nowadays she kisses dogs onscreen, so who knows).

He's actually a nice man. I interviewed him once for a webzine. He's very shy and down to earth, very far from the creepy image everyone gets from his movies (and his looks)
