From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Karin Dagmar Angele (born in 1965 in Ulm)[1] is a German film actress and dubbing artist.


Karin Angele has completed an apprenticeship as a dressmaker and has worked in this profession for a limited time thereafter. In 1988 she studied painting and drawing at the Freie Kunstschule Stuttgart. After that she studied fashion design at the Trier University of Applied Sciences in Trier. She received numerous scholarships at the European Academy of Fine Arts during her fashion design studies and simultaneously followed her acting ambitions. The prizes that she won with her thesis "Rheingold" on Richard Wagner's opera financed her acting studies in New York at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. Her diploma thesis "Rheingold" can be seen in the archives of Haus Wahnfried in Bayreuth.

She started her acting career in a small role at the Trier City Theatre, then got her first leading role for the TV documentary C 14 - Vorstoß in die Vergangenheit as Roman Ruler and did voiceover in a commercial for the German radio station RPR. Before her studies abroad she was given support by the stage and film actress Karyn von Ostholt [de].

Parallel to acting, Karin Angele built a second career in the fine arts. In 1995, while still a student in Trier, she taught figurative painting and nude drawing at the European Academy of Fine Arts in Trier [de]. In 1997 she was a founding member of the Freie Kunstakademie Artefact, Bonn[2] and has been teaching there ever since.[3] She was also a lecturer at the Alanus-Hochschule in Alfter/Werkhaus for eight years. Her own works, mainly consisting of paintings and objects/wall installations as well as photography, are featured both in national and international exhibitions.[4]

Angele has appeared in German TV productions, such as the comedy series Nikola as Sister Elke, as tennis instructor Gaby Hoffmann in Verbotene Liebe, in the crime series Wilsberg or in the 300th anniversary episode of the ZDF series SOKO-Köln, in which she plays the titular role, the Irish innkeeper Maureen O'Brien, as well as in international cinema and TV film productions[5] in which she acts in the national language. The UK production Salome won several awards in the category "Best Short Film" and was also officially selected by the Cannes Film Festival. In Turkey, she was cast by Korhan Yurtsever with a key role in his TRT film production Koyverdin Gittin Beni. Karin Angele, who sees herself as a universal thinker and who lives according to the idea of integration, studied Turkish due to the high number of Turkish citizens in the city where she lives as a sign of recognition and appreciation. This is evident by her playing the part of a German woman married to a Turk, who, despite difficult circumstances, manages to reunite her family. Karin Angele's work, also in fine arts, is about "border-crossing" attitudes, dissolving negative tendencies and emphasizing common elements.
