: Connie Corleone
Connie is the youngest child, and only daughter, of Don Vito Corleone and Carmela Corleone, and is the sister of Sonny, Fredo and eventual Godfather Michael Corleone. She upsets her father by marrying Carlo Rizzi, a small-time hood of Northern Italian descent, and only gains her father’s approval by agreeing to hold an old-style Sicilian wedding. Life Beyond ‘The Godfather’
Following her breakout role as Connie in “The Godfather” and “The Godfather Part II” (a role she landed in part because she is the sister of director Francis Ford Coppola), Shire achieved greater fame as Adrian, the main love interest in the “Rocky” series. Recent roles include 2002’s “Kiss the Bride” and 2005’s “I Heart Huckabees.”-XFINITY Entertainment Staff
