Christiane Maybach

Actress

Christiane Maybach, movie actress from the 1950s to the 1970s and who still appeared on TV until recently, died April 12 in Cologne. She was 74.

Born in Berlin, Maybach entered the film biz in the mid-’50s parallel while continuing to work on the stages, and her looks occasionally earned her the description of “Germany’s Marilyn Monroe.” She mostly appeared in B-movies like “The Girl Without Pyjamas,” Fritz Lang’s “Eyes of Evil,” or mad scientist-genre pic “A Head for the Devil,” as a talking head.

In the 70s, she had supporting roles in several Rainer Werner Fassbinder productions and in David Bowie-starrer “Just a Gigolo.”

It wasn’t until the mid-’90s and thereafter that Maybach became a household name appearing in RTL’s daily soap “Unter Uns” and other TV series.
