In Hermine Huntgeburth's "Der Hahn ist tot" (2000), she appeared in one of the main roles as the love interest of an elderly man. She was a member of the ensemble in the comedy "Bis dass dein Tod uns scheidet" (2002, TV) playing alongside Senta Berger and Günther Maria Halmer as well as in the drama "Für immer verloren" (2003, Director: Uwe Janson) with Veronica Ferres and Walter Sittler.
