Nadja Tiller stood on stage until old age

Tiller, who was born in Vienna on March 16, 1929, became famous with the 1958 film “Das Mädchen Rosemarie”. From the late 1940s to the mid-1960s, she acted in numerous major films, including “Illusion in Moll” (1952 ) and “Gripsholm Castle” (1963). She was also in demand in non-German-speaking countries and worked, for example, in 1962 on Roberto Rossellini’s “Anima nera”.

In later decades, Tiller worked mainly for television, starring in “The Amber Amulet” around 2003. From time to time she worked together with her husband, the actor Walter Giller. The two married in 1956 and remained a couple until Giller’s death in 2011. They had two children and four grandchildren.

Tiller was always on theatrical stages well into old age. In 2009 she and Giller starred in Leander Haussmann’s feature film “Dinosaurs – Against Us You Look Old”. Tiller spent her final years in a retirement home in Hamburg. As the “Bild” newspaper further reported, the actress wished for a burial at sea. Her husband was also buried that way.
