Aghasadyg Garaybeyli in Sevil (1929)

Aghasadyg Aghaali oglu Garaybeyli (Azerbaijani: Ağasadıq Gəraybəyli) (15 March 1897, Shamakhi – 5 December 1988, Baku) was an Azerbaijani actor.

Life and contributions[edit]

Garaybeyli was born in the city of Shamakhi, but like many natives of that city at the time, he found himself in Baku after the devastating earthquake of 1902. Garaybeyli became an orphan at a young age and was brought up by a foster family. While still in school, he started attending drama clubs for actors-to-be established by Huseyn Arablinski. He made his first stage appearance in 1917.[1] Beginning in 1921, with the help of Uzeyir Hajibeyov, he started attending courses in professional acting. It was also when Garaybeyli got married. In the following years, he acted in over 200 different roles, including both stage and film appearances. Garaybeyli was also known as a voice actor in a number of movies. From 1933 until the end of his life, he worked in the Azerbaijan State Drama Theatre. In 1940 he was awarded the title of People's Artist of Azerbaijan.[2]

He died in Baku, four months before his 92nd birthday.
