Biography

Leading German actress Barbara Sukowa was a protégée of director Rainer Werner Fassbinder, who made her feature-film debut in his drama Lola (1981). Prior to that, she had appeared in Fassbinder's made-for-television movie Berlin Alexanderplatz (1980). Following the filmmaker's death in 1982, Sukowa went on to act in the occasional international production, notably Lars von Trier's Zentropa (1991). ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
