Biography

Aylin Tezel was born in Bünde in 1983. From 2004 until 2006, the daughter of a German mother and a Turkish father studied at the renowned Ernst Busch acting school in Berlin. Additionally, she was professionally trained in classical ballet and modern dance. Following first TV appearances, including a turn in Angelina Maccarone's controversial "Tatort" episode "Wem Ehre gebührt" (2007), she made her screen debut as an underage groupie who seduces a rock star in Andreas Morell's drama "Unschuld" (2008). After further TV work and a supporting role in "Bis aufs Blut – Brüder auf Bewährung", she got her first leading part in Ayse Polat's comedy "Luks Glück".

Her defintive breakthrough came with her starring role in the box office hit " Almanya – Willkommen in Deutschland". Director Yasemin Samdereli's film about the life of a Turkish family in Germany premiered in the competition of the 2011 Berlin IFF and went on to win the Silver Award at the 2011 German Film Awards. The same year, Tezel also starred in the fairy tale adaptation "Aschenputtel".

In 2012, she joined the cast of Dietrich Brüggemann's ensemble comedy "Drei Zimmer, Küche, Bad" and played the lead in Pola Beck's award-winning drama "Am Himmel der Tag".

Since 2012, Tezel has a recurring role as police detective Nora Delay in the WDR edition of the popular "Tatort" TV series.

Her memorable performance in "Am Ende der Tag" won Tezel numerous awards, including the Deutsche Schauspielerpreis, which she was to win again for her portrayal of a young woman who has to cope with an unplanned pregnancy in the TV tragicomedy "Kleine Schiffe" (2013). Following a supporting role in Marco Kreuzpaintner's comedy "Coming In" (2014), she went on to guest-star in the US TV series "Homeland" and continued her stint as police detective Nora Delay in the Dortmund branch of the popular "Tatort" series.

In the theatrical release "Macho Man" (2015), Aylin Tezel starred as a German-Turkish woman whose new German boyfriend tries to impress her by becoming a macho.
