Andrea Sihler can draw from an enviable number of experiences and artistic backgrounds: she was born in Klagenfurt, Austria and raised in Düsseldorf, Germany. She studied Theater and Film Sciences in Vienna and successfully completed training at the Ecole de Mime Marcel Marceau to become a mime artist. Furthermore she studied classical singing with Anna Kabanti and Jazz and Chanson with Benny Gillette. Being an all-embracing artist she was just right for being chosen as head of Theater Labor München. Starting in 1980 she led the group in her function as producer, author, and actress together with Manfred Killer for more than 20 years. During the 1990s Andrea Sihler increasingly received offers to play for film and TV. The observant TV viewers certainly do remember Andrea Sihler´s early performances in various TV series, among them councilwoman Marianne Pflueger in ZWEI ÄRZTE IST EINER ZUVIEL, or else the head of a cafeteria – Anna Becker – in SAMT UND SEIDE. And she beautifully fit in the 1940s setting as Miss Constanze in the TV mini-series DIE REBELLIN. Ever since 2002, Andrea Sihler is Sister Hildegard in the hit TV series UM HIMMELS WILLEN. All dressed up in religious garb and wearing big glasses, she exudes charme and humor making her role one of the most remarkable supporting characters within Germany´s TV landscape. Since Andrea Sihler has become one of Germany´s most popular TV actresses – all but one question remains: will there ever be a category for that at Germany´s prestigious Fernsehpreis? All the while Andrea Sihler is capable of and wants to go further than that. She is such a gentle and yet sophisticated and professional person, she can play the whole gamut from a doctor, lawyer, the best friend to caring mother, dangerous lover or faithful partner. Whatever the roles may ask for, Andrea Sihler will always endow them with a truthful and steadfast character.
