Angelika Strahser was born in Austria in 1982.  Starting at the tender age of nine until her time at law school she spent her holidays acting out on local theater stages.  Having finalized her first year on the job as a lawyer she realized that dealing with legal disputes was not her cup of tea so she finally turned her attention to becoming a trained actress.  In 2010 she earned her degree with honors at the Schauspielakademie Elfriede Ott in Vienna, Austria.  It was only on the day after graduation that she was invited to audition at the famed Vienna Burgtheater.  This in turn strengthened her belief that the path she had chosen was the right one.  Ensuing jobs for theater and TV led to further opportunities like being offered a role, by the multiply decorated Karl Markovics, to play the daughter of Ulrike Beimpold for the big screener SUPERWELT.  The drama about self-discovery premiered at the 2015 Berlinale and the audience loved it making it a very moving experience for Angelika Strahser.  Again looking for a fresh challenge and drawing from her enormous comedic talent, Angelika Strahser invented a new character -a grade schooler named KNUT.  Consequently, she dared to take Knut in front of the jury and audience of Austria’s most renowned contest for up-and-coming comic talent and finished runner-up with her very own show called EVERYTHING WILL BE KNUT.  Way to go Angelika!  When it comes to her profession as an actress, Angelika Strahser wishes for her to be offered a wide array of different roles.  Rightly so, if you asked me.  After all, her charisma covers the whole gamut from utter modesty to courageous beauty.
