Lila Kedrova Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 1918
  • Died: Feb 16, 2000

Born in Russia during the second year of the communist regime, actress Lila Kedrova has spent most of her life in France. After spending a decade establishing herself in European films and theatrical productions, Kedrova won an Academy Award for her first English-speaking role: fading courtesan Madame Hortense in 1964's [[Feature~V56204~Zorba the Greek~zorbathegreek]] (she replaced [[Performer~P65603~Simone Signoret~simonesignoret]], who withdrew shortly after shooting started). She would go on to win a Tony nomination when she reprised Hortense for the Broadway musical Zorba, again co-starring with [[Performer~P107297~Anthony Quinn~anthonyquinn]]. Appearing in fewer and fewer films as the 1970s became the 1980s (sometimes there were four-year gaps between her pictures), Lila Kedrova won the Golden Mask award at the Taorima Film Festival for her portrayal of a terminally ill woman in the American [[Feature~V48979~Tell Me a Riddle~tellmeariddle]] (1980). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
