Actress Antra Liedskalniņa (1930–2000)

Antra Liedskalniņa was an actress of extreme talent and extreme versatility. For decades, she was the foremost tragic lead actress in Latvian drama, but her immense presence was not confined to tragic roles. Liedskalniņa was among the first to introduce a figurative acting style into what is now the Latvian National Theatre, thereby enriching the entire national scene. She is often listed among the all-time best performers in Latvia, and her life seems to have been one in which the line between theatre and life was blurred constantly.
