Ekaterina Vasilyevna Zelyonaya (Russian: Екатери́на Васи́льевна Зелёная; 7 November 1901, Tashkent – 1 April 1991, Moscow), better known as Rina Zelyonaya, was a Soviet actress and singer.


Early popularity

She became popular on account of her ability to imitate the speech of children. Although she appeared briefly in such well-known films as Podkidysh (1939), for which she also provided the script, Zelyonaya earned her living by touring the country and performing humorous skits from the life of children. She also provided the voice for cartoon characters and radio shows.

Later life

At an advanced age, she was cast in film roles of grannies, notably as Mrs. Hudson in the TV series The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson filmed by the Lenfilm movie studio between 1979 and 1986. She died of cancer and buried in Vvedenskoye Cemetery.
