Marie Versini (August 10, 1940, Paris, France - November 22, 2021, Guingamp, France) was a French actress, best known for her role as Nso-chi in the film Vinnetou.


She came from the family of a high school teacher originally from the Mediterranean island of Corsica. She has been involved in dance and acting since childhood. Already at the age of 17, in 1957–1959, she became a member of the important French Comédie-Française theater scene. She also performed here successfully, among others, in Shakespeare's drama Romeo and Juliet. She also made her successful film debut in 1956, winning her first major role in 1958 in the English film A Tale of Two Cities. Thanks to her language skills (she spoke Italian, English, French and German), she also appeared in other foreign films, such as the American film Parisian Blues. In 1963, she won the audition for her most famous life role, Vinnetou's sister Nsho-chi in the film Vinnetou, which gave her great fame and still lasting popularity. After that, she starred in several other adventure films based on Karel May's books. In the 70's and 80's she devoted herself mainly to acting on television. In 1984, she last appeared in film and television. During her life, she starred in 33 feature films.

Personal life

Since 1974, she has been married to screenwriter and director Pierre Vialett, who is 22 years older. In 1984, she left the world of film to take care of her in her old age (he died at the age of 94 in 2013).
