Biography

Sandra Hüller, born 1978, attended actor's training at Berlin's Hochschule für Schauspielkunst Ernst Busch from 1996 to 2000. From 1999 to 2001, Hüller was a cast member at Theaterhaus Jena. After a brief stint at Schauspielhaus Leipzig, Hüller went to Theater Basel in 2002 and participated in productions of "Faust I", "Romeo and Juliet", "As You Like It", and "Das goldene Vlies". In 2003, Hüller was named "Best new actress" by the theatre magazine "Theater Heute".

Hüller then appeared in several short films – "Nicht auf den Mund" by Kathrin Feistl, "Kleine Schwester" by Thomas Adamicka, and "Kühe lächeln mit den Augen" by Johanna Icks – and made her feature film debut in Hans Christian Schmid's drama "Requiem" that is set in provincial Southern Germany. Her portrayal of the mentally instable student Michaela who becomes the victim of a religious exorcism, won Sandra Hüller the Bavarian film award as "Best new actress", and the German film award as "Best actress". Furthermore, Hüller won the Silver Bear as "Best actress" for her role in "Requiem" at the 2006 Berlin international film festival.

 

Despite the success, Hüller focused on her work in the theatre in the following years. Yet she regularly appeared in ambitious short and feature films, including the award-winning drama "Madonnen" (2007), the biopic "Fräulein Stinnes fährt um die Welt" (2008) and the period piece "Henri 4" (2010). She played a physician who deliberately begins intimate affairs with her patients in Nanouk Leopold's psychological drama "Brownian Movement" (2010) and a woman shocked by the unexpected suicide of her partner in Jan Schomburg's "Über uns das All". For the latter two, Sandra Hüller received a special acting prize at the 2011 Ludwigshafen Festival of German Film.

After a supporting role in the British production "Strings" (2012), Hüller played an overly ambitious, but rather untalented documentary filmmaker in the surrealist satire "Finsterworld" (2013) and appeared as the evil fox in a TV adaptation of "Picocchio" (2013).

"Vergiss mein Ich" (2014) reunited Hüller with director Jan Schomburg and saw her playing the friend of a woman who lost all her memory.
