Tatjana Irrah (also known as Tatjana Irah and Tatjana Yrrah), born Olga Bernhardt,[1] was a German film and stage actress who appeared in German and American silent films. Her film career began in Germany in 1913.[2] Around 1916, she moved to the United States due to the film shortage in her home country.[3]

Her performance in Die Grosstadtluft was reviewed as "the one characterization in the play that was done exceptionally well".[4] She played a main role in the comedy film Der oder Der (One or the Other).[5]

In 1920 her first American film was released.
