Saša Rašilov (6 September 1891 – 4 May 1955) was a Czechoslovak film actor. He appeared in 30 films between 1913 and 1954. Rašilov was an actor, comedian, clown and cabaret, grandfather of actor Saša Rašilov Jr. and his brother Vaclav Rašilov, and a longtime member of the drama of the National Theatre in Prague. He came from impoverished aristocratic family. His father, who was the administrator of the noble casinos in Celetná Street, died suddenly in 1901, when Rašilov was ten years old. Only three of twelve siblings of children had survived. The oldest of the sons was a cellist in the orchestra of the German Theatre in Brno, and so Rašilov and her mother moved to Brno. Soon they returned to Prague and lived in Prague's suburb of Zizkov. His mother died in 1909. In 1909 Rašilov trained as a typist and from 1909 to 1914 he worked in Prague. After his return to Prague, he started performing in various Prague cabarets (Variety Karlin, Rococo, Longenův Boom Cabaret and Stage and Revolutionary Red Seven). In 1920 he was in the title role of Molière play, adapted by Edward Bass and directed by George Drémanem, called The Lord of Prasátkova KHHilar.

From performing in a cabaret actors took a lot of practical experience, including the ability to improvise and make contact with the audience. He had a remarkable ability to individually transform classical stage roles according to their temperament and outlook, which eventually made him very popular.

After returning from the war he lived in Old Town Iron doors, and later bought a houseboat, where he lived for several years and who kept the anchor Podoli or Žofín opposite the National Theatre.
