Nastassja Kinski was born Nastassja Aglaia Nakszynski, on the 24th January 1961 in Berlin, Germany. She is a prolific actress, having appeared in more than 60 movies. Her starring roles include her Golden Globe Award winning portrayal of 'Tess Durbeyfield' in Roman Polanski's film Tess and her parts in the films The Wrong Move, Paris, Texas and Faraway, So Close! During the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s Nastassja Kinski was widely regarded as an international sex symbol. Her foray into the spotlight began in her native Germany where she started out as a model. At the age of 13, the German New Wave actress Lisa Kreuzer placed her in the role of the dumb Mignon in The Wrong Move. In her mid-teens she starred in the horror film To The Devil a Daughter (1976). She has gained a certain notoriety through her nude appearances in these films whilst still a minor. This is linked to another controversy as to the exact year of her birth, which was apparently reported to the American authorities as 1959, though German records show that she was actually born in 1961. She is a gifted polyglot, Natasha speaks German, English, French, Italian and Russian fluently.
