From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Heike Makatsch (born August 13, 1971) is a German actress.

Makatsch was born in Düsseldorf, Germany, on August 13, 1971 as the daughter of Rainer Makatsch; she spent several months in New Mexico in 1988 in an effort to improve her English, and later studied politics and sociology at the University of Düsseldorf for four semesters, which was followed by an apprenticeship as a dressmaker until 1994.

Her TV career started in 1993, when she was hired by music channel VIVA, hosting shows such as Interaktiv and Heikes Hausbesuche; two years later, on August 13, 1995, she became the host of the German chart show Bravo TV, aired by RTL II, a position she kept until summer 1996.

Makatsch first appeared in a movie in 1996, when she starred in Detlev Buck's Männerpension (English: "Jailbirds"); she received the Bayerischer Filmpreis (Bavarian Film Award) as most talented young actor for her performance. Since then, she has appeared in about two dozen movies, both German and English language productions.
