Sandra Hüller (born 30 April 1978) is a German actress. She gained critical praise for her portrait of Anneliese Michel in Hans-Christian Schmid's drama Requiem, and is best known internationally for her starring role in Maren Ade's comedy Toni Erdmann. Besides Julia Jentsch and Nina Hoss, she is the only German actress to win either the European film award or the Silver Bear for Best Actress, top honors of the European Film Academy and Berlin Film Festival, in the 21st century.

Life and career[edit]

Hüller was born in Suhl, East Germany. She studied theater from 1996 to 2000 at the Hochschule Für Schauspielkunst "Ernst Busch", Berlin. She appeared from 1998 to 2001 at the Jena Theater, Thuringia and then for one year at the Schauspiel Leipzig. It was Oliver Held who recommended her to the Theater Basel, Switzerland where she appeared until 2006.

Prior to the release of Toni Erdmann in 2016, Hüller was best known for her role as Michaela Klingler in Hans-Christian Schmid's film Requiem, for which she won the Berlin Film Festival Award for Best Actress in 2006.[1] In 2014, she won the German Film Award for best supporting actress for her portrayal of Franziska Feldenhoven in Frauke Finsterwalder's film Finsterworld.
