Franziska Troegner was born July 18, 1954, as the daughter of actor and director Werner Troegner in East Berlin.

In 1977, Franziska Troegner made her movie debut in the TV movie "Der zweite Mann".

Her most important films of that era include Roland Gräf"s "P.S." (1978), Rolf Losansky"s children’s film "Moritz in der Litfasssäule" (1983), Ulrich Thein"s "Mensch, mein Papa…!"

On television, Franziska Troegner appeared as the partner of comedian Helga "Henne" Hahnemann. After the German reunification, she also performed in skits with Diether Krebs and Dieter Hallervorden. Furthermore, Troegner played Anna Magdalena in Lothar Bellag"s four-part TV movie "Das Leben von Johann Sebastian Bach" (1985) and the mother of the adolescent kidnapper played by Susanne Bormann in Andreas Dresen"s "Raus aus der Haut" ("Changing Skins", 1997). She was also seen alongside Katrin Saß in Michael Klier"s film "Heidi M." (2001), and alongside Nina Hoss in Christian Petzold"s "Toter Mann" ("Something to Remind Me", 2001). Troegner was nominated for the German film award as "Best supporting actress" for her performance in "Heidi M.".

In 2004, Troegner for the first time starred in a Hollywood production. Directed by Tim Burton, she played psyched up Mrs. Glupsch, the mother of Augustus Glupsch, a boy who constantly craves for sweets, in the perfidious fairy tale movie "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".
