Biography

Alice Dwyer was born 1988 as Alice Deekeling in Berlin. She already decided to become an actress at the age of nine: Against her mother's will, she applied for an actors agency while still visiting primary school – and two years later landed the leading role in Ulla Wagner's drama "Anna Wunder" (2000).

At the age of 13, Dwyer caused a stir with her performance in "Baby" (2002): In Philipp Stölzl's drama, she portrayed a Lolita-like 15-year old who seduces one of her father's friends. During the following years, Dwyer starred in a number of TV and movie productions and by smartly choosing from her role offers managed to not be restricted to a certain role type. Thus, she was, for instance, seen as a cigarette smuggler in Hans Christian Schmid's award-winning film "Lichter" ("Distant Lights", 2003), while she played a sensitive teenager in "Das Lächeln der Tiefseefische" ("The Smile of the Monsterfish", 2005), and a budding pickpocket in "Was ich von ihr weiß" (2006), a mother-daughter-story.

At the start of 2008, Dwyer won the award as "Best actress" at the Film Festival "Max Ophuels Preis" for her performances in the films "Höhere Gewalt" ("Act of Violence") und "Die Tränen meiner Mutter" ("My Mother's Tears"). One year later, she returned to Saarbrücken with the film "Torpedo" that won the award as "Best mid-length film".

During the following years, she guest-starred in several TV series ("Der Dicke", "Der Kriminalist"). She impressed critics and audiences alike with her performance as an enigmatic, seemingly dishevelled young woman in Wolfgang Fischer's drama" Was Du nicht siehst" ("What You Don't See", 2009). Shortly afterwards, she played young Canadian Eve in Jesper Petzke's "Wie Matrosen" which entered the competition of Film Festival "Max Ophuels Preis". She again got rave reviews for her portrayal of a young Jewish woman who escapes from a Nazi death camp and is thus separated from her friend in "Die verlorene Zeit" ("Remembrance", 2011). Dwyer went on to play the role of an adventurous waitress, who fatefully falls for an Italian mobster, in "Ein ruhiges Leben" (IT/D/F), which was released in Germany in Spring 2012.

In the meantime, she acted in TV-productions as well as in shorts like "Neiiiiiin" and "Eine lange Nacht", yet never abandoned the theatrical feature film. In September of 2012, she could be seen in Rudolf Thome's "Ins Blaue". She starred as a young director who during shooting her first movie has trouble keeping the spheres in front and behind the camera apart. In the fall of the same year, Dietrich Brüggemann's "Drei Zimmer, Küche, Bad" and Felix Stienz's "Puppe, Icke & der Dicke" were released in German theatres, both of which feature the actress in supporting roles.
