Biography

Ursula Strauss, born April 25, 1974, in Melk, Austria, went to Vienna after graduating from Bildungsanstalt für Kindergartenpädagogik. In Vienna, she attended drama school at Volkstheater from 1993 to 1996. During the following years, Strauss worked at several theatres in Austria and in Germany. She, for instance, performed in a production of "Leonce und Lena" ("Leonce and Lena") at Vienna"s Ensemble Theater, in a production of "Much Ado About Nothing" at Theater in der Josefstadt, and in a production of "Die lustigen Nibelungen" at Stadttheater Kiel.

 


In 2000, Strauss made her debut as a movie actress in a supporting role in the drama "Gelbe Kirschen" ("White Cherries"). Three years later, she played a leading role in the ensemble of Barbara Albert"s omnibus film "Böse Zellen" ("Free Radicals"). After striking supporting roles in films such as "Crash Test Dummies" (2005) or Barbara Albert"s film "”Fallen" ("Falling", 2006), Strauss played another leading role on the movie screen in 2008: In Götz Spielmann"s highly-praised drama "Revanche", she plays a frustrated wife who unwittingly engages in an affair with a man who wants to kill her husband in revenge. Strauss won a special award at the 2009 "Diagonale" Film Festival in Graz for her performance in the film although the festival usually does not give out awards to actors.

Since 2009, Ursula Strauss plays the title role of inspector Angelika Schnell in der ORF crime series "Schnell ermittelt". At the moment, Strauss and her co-star from "Revanche", Johannes Krisch, are filming the war drama "Vielleicht in einem anderen Leben", directed by Elisabeth Scharang, that is supposed to open in cinemas in 2010.
