Foreign beauty Nadja Uhl is likely most familiar to American audiences for her portrayal of terrorist leader Brigitte Mohnhaupt in the 2008 German docudrama "The Baader Meinhof Complex. " However, the internationally recognized performer is just as well known as another revolutionary--Tatjana, a radical East German waitress turned dissident in 2000's "The Silence after the Shot," known in the United States as "The Legend of Rita." Uhl, who grew up in the former German Democratic Republic during the 1970s, at the peak of public support for the violence-prone Red Army Faction, was understandably fascinated with portraying them as an actress. She displayed a proclivity for performing from a young age, and received her dramatic training at the Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy College of Music and Theater in the early '90s. A natural talent, she found success performing not only in political thrillers like the harrowing Holocaust film "Twin Sisters," but in reserved character pieces as well. Playing a nurse in the relationship drama "Summer in Berlin," Uhl was especially acclaimed; she received a nomination for Best Actress from the German Film Awards and won a Silver Hugo at the Chicago International Film Festival. In 2006, Uhl opened a music hall in Potsdam with her partner, Kay Bockhold.
