Eva Krížiková (Slovak pronunciation: [ˈeʋa ˈkriːʒikoʋaː]; born on July 15, 1934) is a Slovak film and stage actress,[1] often celebrated as one of the greatest entertainers ever in her country of origin [2] and The First Lady of Slovak Humor,[3] respectively. Apart from her cinematic achievements, her name has been credited in over five hundred productions made for television.[3]


The filmography of Eva Krížiková chronicles her film work through the artist's 60 years as a motion picture actress. She initially entered the film industry through a minor, backup role in Paľo Bielik's work The Mountains Are Stirring from 1952. Her first starring role came shortly after that, in Friday the 13th (1953), also by Bielik. However she has been cast in only eighteen feature films in total, her name has been credited in over five hundred productions made for television,[3] one-hundred-thirty-three of which represent TV films and/or series.
