After moving to Germany she studied acting under Lucie Höflich and Ilka Grüning. Her first roles were performed at the Schauspielhaus, Bremen, and the Altes Theater (Leipzig). In 1937 she started with the ensemble at the Volksbühne, Berlin. By 1940 she was a permanent actress at this theatre. Her first big movie success came in the operetta The Csardas Princess in 1934, alongside Hans Söhnker. In 1943 she starred with Hans Albers in Münchhausen with great commercial and critical success. During the Third Reich she was cast in several Nazi propaganda films, such as Legion Condor (1939) with Paul Hartmann, and Stukas (1941) as a French girl alongside Carl Raddatz.
In 1949 she married Dr. Hans-Georg Dehnhardt (1913–2001) and after having starred in about 24 movies she retired from acting. She died the month before her 100th birthday, in Bad Kissingen, Bavaria, where she is buried in the Parkfriedhof.
