After taking her ‘Abitur’ school examinations she soon became well known to a wide audience through her first leading roles in the early-evening series ‘Verbotene Liebe’ and as Melanie, the daughter of Inspector Schenk (Dietmar Bär), in the WDR production ‘Tatort’.

In 2008 she was to be seen in the film ‘Einer bleibt sitzen’, in the film adaptation of the fairy tale ‘Das tapfere Schneiderlein’ (The Brave Little Tailor) and a leading role in an episode of the Frankfurt ‘Tatort’ series ‘Bevor es dunkel wird’, for which she received the Günter Strack Young Actress’s Award. The three-part ZDF production ‘Krupp – Eine Familie zwischen Krieg und Frieden’, Christian Klandt’s ‘Weltstadt’ (his debut film that won several prizes incl. the Silver Zenith at the Montreal World Film Festival) and Uli Edel’s ‘Zeiten ändern dich’ followed in 2009.

In 2012 the versatile actress appeared in the debut film ‘Puppe, Icke und der Dicke’ in Marc Rothemund’s cinema comedy ‘Man tut was man kann’ as well as in Til Schweiger’s action thriller ‘Schutzengel’ (The Guardians).
