German actress Angela Winkler originally planned to pursue a career in the medical profession. But, while studying at university in Stuttgart, it was ultimately her interest in theater which led her to drama studies and a life of performing instead. The Templin-born actress has a career which spans over 40 years and includes some highly acclaimed foreign films, such as "The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum" (1975), directed by Volker Schlöndorff, in which her performance as the title character first announced her as a truly great actress. Arguably her best-known role was as Agnes Matzerath in "The Tin Drum," Schlöndorff's 1979 adaptation of Günter Grass's classic novel, which really put her name on the map and enabled her to find fame outside of her home country. The movie, which won the Best Foreign Film Oscar in 1980, tells the story of a boy who refuses to grow up as he does not want to be a part of the adult world, and featured a compelling performance from Winkler as Agnes, his mother. Other notable moments in Winkler's career include the 1992 film "Benny's Video," an early effort from controversial Austrian director Michael Haneke, and director Tom Tykwer's 2010 drama, "Three." In addition to her film work, Winkler has also appeared in several theatrical productions in Vienna and Berlin.
