Austrian actress Nadja Tiller has passed away at the age of 93. This is reported by the "Bild" newspaper, citing Natascha Giller (64), the daughter of the film legend. "My mother died last night in the 'Augustinum' in Hamburg. She fell asleep peacefully in the presence of a nurse," said Giller, who lives in Greece with her family. Tiller spent her final years in the luxurious retirement home right on the banks of the Elbe. The family is grateful that her mother was not alone: "The nurse called me at six o'clock this morning and informed me."
In the last week she visited her mother, Giller continues. Now she will coordinate with her brother and drive to Hamburg in the next two days: "We will also be there in the crematorium." Later there will be a burial at sea, just as her mother wanted. Her father was also buried in this way, but it took "a few months".
Nadja Tiller was born in Vienna in 1929 and won the election for "Miss Austria" at the age of 20. She then made her way into acting and had an international career. Among other things, she shot alongside world stars such as Yul Brynner (1920-1985), Mario Adorf (92), Robert Mitchum (1917-1997) and Jean-Paul Belmondo (1933-2021). She probably had her best-known role in the 1958 feature film "The Girl Rosemarie". There she embodied the high-class prostitute Rosemarie Nitribitt (1933-1957), whose murder has not been fully clarified to this day. She was last in 2009 in the Leander Haussmann comedy "Dinosaurs - Against us you look old!" seen alongside Daniel Brühl (44). In 2005 she cast Til Schweiger (59) in his road movie "Barfuss".
Tiller was married to the German actor Walter Giller (1927-2011) for 56 years until his death in 2011. The two had two children together. They have lived in Hamburg since 2008, before that the couple lived in Lugano, Switzerland. In 2006, Tiller and Giller received the Bambi for their life's work. In recent years, Tiller's health has been badly damaged. She survived breast cancer in 2006 and suffered a stroke shortly after her husband's death.
