Vachnadze, Nataliia (Nato) Georgievna


Born June 14, 1904, in Warsaw; died June 14, 1953. Soviet film actress. People’s Artist of the Georgian SSR. Member of the CPSU from 1943.

Vachnadze first appeared in motion pictures during the 1920’s. In silent films she acted primarily in screen adaptations of Georgian literary works—for example, Nino in Arsen the Bandit (1924), based on a Georgian folk narrative poem; Nunu in At the Pillory (1924), based on Kazbegi’s novel The Patricide; and Fati in The Horseman from the Wild West (1925), based on Ninashidze’s novel Who Is to Blame? Vachnadze created lyrical and inspired roles of Georgian women and was especially successful in portraying characters of a romantic nature. Her best roles in talking motion pictures included Tamara in The Last Masquerade, (1934), Neno in Arsen (1937), and Nani in The Golden Valley (1937). Vachnadze was awarded the State Prize of the USSR in 1941 and four orders.
