She’s not simply known as the actress Katharina Thalbach – she’s known as THE THALBACH. Born as Katharina Joachim, Thalbach is her artist name, the name of her great-grandfather who used to be a singer. The Thalbach – one of the most versatile and charismatic artists in Germany. She has been in front of the camera and on stage for over 50 years now and is one of the most in demand theater and opera directors in the country. She is an artist who doesn’t follow the mainstream, who doesn’t cater to the boulevard and who does not seek to be the center of attention. Katharina Thalbach is going her own path, privately and professionally, during her youth in East Germany and later on in West Germany. She is independent, obsessed and hungry for life, even though her life did not always go smoothly.
