Biography

Lena Lauzemis was born in Berlin on January 15 1983. As a member of the youth theatre company "Wild Bunch", she made her stage debut at the early age of 13. This was followed by guest appearances at the Berlin Ensemble and other theatres, including a role in Heiner Müller's 1999 staging of "Anatomie: Titus Fall Of Rome - Ein Shakespearekommentar".

After several stints as a supporting actress, Lauzemis got her first major screen role in the acclaimed TV drama "Das Alibi". She then co-starred alongside Antonio Wannek in Hanno Brühl's lauded youth drama "Herzrasen" (2001).

From 2002 till 2006, she studied at the renowned Ernst Busch acting school in Berlin. From 2006 on, she has been an ensemble member at the Munich Kammerspiele. She also continued to work in film and television, including major parts in Nadya Derado's "Yugotrip" (2004), the "Tatort" thriller "Gefährliches Schweigen" (2004) and the leading role in Jutta Brückner's drama "Hitlerkantate" ("Hitler Cantata", 2005). In Andres Veiel's "Wer wenn nicht wir" ("If Not Us, Who"), which premiered at the 2011 Berlinale, she memorably portrayed the later Red Army Faction terrorist Gudrun Ensslin, garnering much critical praise for her performance. She also won the Hessian Film Award for Best Female Actor and was nominated for the German Film Awards.

Despite these successes, she returned to the stage and exclusively worked in theatre during the following years. In 2012, she left the Kammerspiele in Munich, and she subsequently starred in productions at the Schauspiel Frankfurt and the Schauspielhaus Zurich.

She returned to the screen with the 2014 short "M wie Martha", in which she starred opposite Vicky Krieps (with whom she already worked in "Wer wenn nicht wir"). The two went on to star together in Ingo Haeb's "Das Zimmermädchen Lynn" ("The Chambermaid Lynn", 2014), in which Lauzemis plays a callgirl who eventually befriends a hotel maid hiding under her bed. After joining the cast of the internationally acclaimed miniseries "Deutschland 83" (2015), Lena Lauzemis played the estranged daughter of an out-of-luck boxer in "Herbert" (2015) and starred as an underground activist in the dystopic science-fiction film "Stille Reserven" (AT/DE/CH 2016).
