Roswicha Bertasha Smid Honczar, known artistically as Nadiuska is an actress who developed most of her career in Spain. Born at Schirierling, Germany, January 19, 1952, from Polish mother and Russian father.
She arrived in Barcelona in 1971 and began working as a model. Her leap to cinema came in 1972, debuting under the name "Nadiuska" much easier than her real name. Participated in numerous movies especially during the “destape” era.
Some pictures of Nadiuska as Sophia Loren double:
Some magazine covers:
Some screenshots from her films:
Do you remember the film “Conan the barbarian” with Arnold Schwarzenegger? Nadiuska play the rol of Conan’s mother (by the way, Spanish actor Jorge Sanz was Conan child… the film was set in Spain).
Outside the western straits; and unbent sails
There, where down cloudy cliffs, through sheets of foam,
Shy traffickers, the dark Iberians come;
And on the beach undid his corded bales.
