biography

Birgit Stauber is an actress, writer and director. 

At the age of 5 I had my stage debut as a ballet dancer. With 11 years I directed and choreographed my first musical Cats at the Turnverein. After studying musical and directing for musical theater, I played my first lead part on Austrian televison 1996. The same year I wrote and directed my first musical show. 1998 I won the Rising Movie Talent Award and moved to Los Angeles to study acting with Eric Morris. I danced in various dance companies, I was singing in musicals and I played different characters in film and television – the role I´m widely known for is ‚Rabe‘ in the German action series Wilde Engel. In 2005 I´ve found Leyendas Filmproduktion in Berlin to produce films and tell stories that need to be told. As an actress, director and writer I´m curious about people and foreign worlds, I fancy courage for vulnerability, I enjoy to entertain and I´m in love with life itself – along with profound abysses and exalted romance.

Birgit Stauber is member of the German Television Academy and Austrian Film Academy.
