The German actress’s modeling career took off when she represented her native country in the Elite Model Look in 1992. She went on to work for the biggest names in fashion, including Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Giorgio Armani and Christian Dior. She also walked runway shows for Marc Jacobs and D&G before changing career paths. Her onscreen debut came in 2002 opposite Dennis Hopper in “The Piano Player,” and was cast famously as Helen, the face that launched a thousand ships in 2004’s “Troy” (pictured). She currently stars on FX’s “The Bridge” which has been renewed for a second season.
