She became more widely known in 1996 with a leading role in the TV movie "Crash Kids", in which she played 14-year-old Laura who is drawn into the so-called "Crash Kid" scene around a charismatic leader (Marek Harloff). She had another leading role in the episode "Gefährliche Zeugin" (1998) of the long-running German crime series "Tatort", as a juvenile murder witness who gets chased by a professional killer. She was then a member of the cast of the crime thriller mini series "Warten ist der Tod" ("Waiting Means Death", 1999) alongside Ulrich Tukur as a robber, and of the thriller "Die Todesfahrt der MS SeaStar" ("Countdown at Sea") with Udo Wachtveitl in the lead as a hostage-taking terrorist. Friedemann Fromm cast her in the highly acclaimed psychodrama "Brennendes Schweigen" (2000) in a leading role as the revenge-seeking girlfriend of a murdered village drug dealer.
 
In 1999 Isabell Gerschke completed a singing course at the Musicians Institute Hollywood (USA) and received stage dance education at the school Danceworks in Berlin from 2001 to 2003.

After completing her training, Gerschke appeared in a number of TV productions.
