Die Asta

Welcome to the Asta Nielsen Tumblr! It’s been one of my goals to create the ultimate Asta Nielsen English fan site but things got in the way so I thought that Tumblr would be a good place to start. I do have a film blog though and have written about Asta in a handful of posts.

Why do I love Asta? Because she has screen presence that no other actor or actress has that I have come across. Her face is the most expressive that I’ve seen in silent cinema and I also like that she’s a diva. What’s there to dislike? She is beautiful, talented, yet very much human while being otherworldly through the medium of film.

SUBMISSIONS ARE WELCOME! Any quotes, tidbits, film reviews, photos, etc would be great.
