Konstantin Vasilev Kisimov (Bulgarian: Константин Кисимов) was a Bulgarian stage and film actor born in 1897, deceased in 1965.
He was born in the family of revolutionaries and enlighteners. His father had studied International law in Cambridge University. Naturally Konstantin followed his example and started studying law in the Sofia University and then in the Sorbonne. His love for the stage turned his life. He was admitted to the Acting school of the Ivan Vazov National Theatre and spent there a year before going in on a specialization in Paris in 1924 from where he returned in 1928. At first he was devoted to the theatre, but soon started his career in cinema. He took part in some of the first Bulgarian movies. He went on to become one of the most famous Bulgarian actors until the 1960s. His most notable role was that of Kolcho Slepetsa (Kolcho The Blind) in Pod igoto (1952). Other notable appearances include those in Kalin Orelat (1950), Geroite na Shipka (1955) and Hitar Petar (1960).
