Tasso Kavadia

Actress. A specialist in villainess roles, she was a regular in Greek films, television, and theatre for over half a century. Born Anastasia Kavadia in the city of Patras, she studied piano, acting, and writing in Athens and Paris before making her silver screen bow as Liza in 1954’s “Windfall in Athens”. Though she had a parallel career as a radio and newspaper journalist from the mid 1950s to the late 1960s, she appeared steadily in about two dozen movies until the early 2000s, among the better known being “Stella” (1955) and the 1968 “Stefania”. Begining around 1990, she was seen frequently on Greek television to the end of her life, her final credit being the 2009 “The Will of Father Jean Meslier”. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
