Antje Traue Biography
Antje Traue was born on the 18th of January in 1981. She was a daughter of a single mother and spent her early years in Mittweida (East Germany). The girl was very good looking from the earliest years. She spoke German and Russian fluently (her mother spoke Russian most part of her day, but it is not known exactly, whether she had Russian roots or just liked that language). She is fluent in English too. When Antje was a pupil, she studied not well as she spoke Russian much better than German and that lack of language prevented her from doing her best at school. Soon Antje Traue was dropped out of school. She was fond of sports and that’s why devoted all her free time to her gymnastic lessons. But then she fell down during one of her workouts and was injured. Thus the future star concentrated on music (she played the piano and the guitar) and theater lessons. She was inspired by her mother to make career of a theatrical actress as the last one was a trained musician and dancer.
When Antje was 16, she went for casting to Munich Art Lab and was chosen for the supporting role in the musical. She acted in “West End Opera” during four years and travelled all over the world with her small role.
When the actress was 23, her mother died and the beauty appeared alone in this big and cruel world. She moved to Berlin and entered the college there. Thus in spite of the fact, Antje was dropped out from school, she got diploma of Charlotte-Wolff-Kolleg.
The young actress visited numerous castings but she was not successful. “You are too inexperienced to get the leading role and too beautiful to get the supporting one. In this case you would catch too much attention – and it is not good for supporting actresses” thus she was told, when she was rejected by casting directors.
The actress managed to get small roles in short German films. Her first American film was called Pandorum. This German-British film of Christian Alvart was that very lucky ticket and actress had finally got. She co-acted with Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster. Then Antje Traue got the small roles in the films “5 Days of War “and “Nobel’s Last Will”. She tried her best but still was too far from stardom. The actress decided to drop out acting and devote herself to medicine. But finally she got her breaking role – Superman Man of Steel Faora.
