Salome Modebadze’s picture story

Actresses are not very different from “ordinary” people, they have the same feelings and emotions us any theatre goer, but they make other’s think in a different way and make their lives more interesting. Abramishvili was only 17 when she got married. Her husband never wanted her to become an actress and she had to drop the University in a year… But when a couple of years later her husband died of a blind shot she took the second chance.

Actresses are not very different from “ordinary” people, they have the same feelings and emotions us any theatre goer, but they make other’s think in a different way and make their lives more interesting. Abramishvili was only 17 when she got married. Her husband never wanted her to become an actress and she had to drop the University in a year… But when a couple of years later her husband died of a blind shot she took the second chance.

Abramishvili’s son Gaga is now 9 years old and lives with the mother in Tbilisi. Every morning the actress goes to Rustaveli Theatre for rehearsals. If she is not playing at the evening she always takes her son from school herself. Gaga says if he had a magic stick he would have returned dad to his mom…

The actress is now working on a new play but yet keeps its content in secret. “It would be something amazing,” she says happy with the long rehearsals with her friends at her so much beloved theatre. And she never stops hoping in better future!!!
