Born in Lübz, Germany. Brought up in East Berlin. Moved abroad aged 17.
Carolin trained at the School of Physical Theatre London (now based in Canada), where she completed an intensive one year Lecoq course. She then continued her studies on the three year BA (Hons) Acting Course (pathway- Collaborative and Devised Theatre) at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama before enjoying a more classical, postgraduate acting training at Drama Studio London. The marriage of all has given her a unique and rounded approach to her work.
Since graduating from Drama School in 2010 Carolin has worked on stage and screen internationally. Most recently she performed in ‘The Last Days of Mankind’ (Karl Kraus) at Leith Theatre in Edinburgh, directed by Yuri Birte Anderson and John Paul McGroarty. The production is underscored by original music from the Tiger Lillies who also formed part of the ensemble. The show will tour Poland and Germany later in 2019. Carolin has starred in various independent films, such as ‘FlySpy’ directed by BAFTA award winning director Daniel Smith, acting opposite Ophelia Lovibond and ‘Caraba’, a feature about free education, directed by Katharina Mihm. As a voice over artist she regularly records animations for the Goethe Institute and past clients include the BBC, IHG, Vodafone, PURE, Olympia, Hodder & Stoughton, EasyJet, KPMG and many more.
At the beginning of 2017, after living abroad for 13 years, Carolin made the decision to spend more time in her hometown Berlin to rediscover her German roots.

I travelled from Edinburgh to Strasbourg to create a short theatre piece with visual artists Association Arsène. There was an 11 day revolution in the Alsace region shortly after the first World War and this is a memoir to that. I am very happy to collaborate with these great artists.

Very happy to share that part of my video installation work, entitled ‘Bad Jokes’, developed with artist Manfred Schneider will be shown at Kino Central until 9th November at 5pm and 6pm. This is an initiative organised by the Künstlerhaus Bethanien to show work created at their studios in collaboration with various artists. I can’t watch it as I am in Edinburgh rehearsing for ‘The Last Days of Mankind’ but do pop along.

Incredibly excited to announce that I have been cast in ‘The Last Days of Mankind’ a satire written by Karl Kraus set in the cafes of Vienna during World War One. This is an international project including award winning artists and theatre companies from Ireland, Ukraine, Serbia, Poland, Germany and France. To be performed at the Leith Theatre in Edinburgh, Scotland from 10th- 16th November, before touring Poland and Germany next year. The show will feature The Tiger Lillies (excited is an understatement!) and preparations and rehearsals are well under way. Watch this space.
18th August 2018
I have been cast as Eve Hecate in a new play called HECATE HOUSE written by Christopher Adams- Cohen. A story of self discovery, ritual and revelation. The production merges the worlds of installation art, narrative play and pagan practise. On Sunday the 19th of August at 5pm we will share a rehearsed reading of the play to an invited audience at Theaterhaus Mitte in Berlin. Hecate House will be directed by James Darrah and will premiere in early 2019. I am so excited!
