Biography

Gisela Schneeberger was born in Dollnstein on October 3 1948. She was raised in Munich, where she graduated from school and began studying psychology. In 1971, she pursued her true career dream and enrolled in the acting class at the Otto-Falckenberg-Schule, which she completed in 1974. Between 1975 and 1978, Gisela Schneeberger performed at the Schiller-Theater in Berlin, after which she formed a now legendary comedy trio with satirist Gerhard Polt and her husband Hanns Christian Müller: From 1979 until 1988, they made the TV series "Fast wia im richtigen Leben", a scathing satire of German everyday life, which starred Polt and Schneeberger and was directed by Müller. The acclaimed series was very popular and made Schneeberger a household name in Germany.

In addition to this, she enjoyed great success on the stage as well, for instance in "München leuchtet" (1983/1984), "Exoten" (1985) "Diridari" (1988) and "Tschurangati" (1993/1994). Between 1980 and 1986, Schneeberger also regularly guest-starred in the political TV comedy show "Scheibenwischer", and in 1983, she appeared as one of the protagonist's girlfriends in Helmut Dietl's seminal TV series "Monaco Franze".

She made her feature film debut opposite Gerhard Polt in the tragicomedy "Kehraus" (1983), which was directed by Hanns Christian Müller and went on to win numerous accolades, including the German Film Award. In 1988, the trio presented a follow-up with the satire "Man spricht deutsh", which also was a box-office success. "Langer Samstag" (1992), Schneeberger's third film under Müller's direction, received mixed reviews. In 1993, Schneeberger and Müller separated.

During the following years, Gisela Schneeberger continued to be a prolific film and television actress, appearing in Doris Dörrie's "Bin ich schön?" ("Am I Beautiful?", 1998), Markus Imboden's "Frau Rettich, die Czerni und ich" ("Mrs. Rettich, Czerni and Me", 1998), Rainer Kaufmann's "Kalt ist der Abendhauch" ("Cold is the Breath of Evening", 2000) and Simon Verhoeven's "100 Pro" (2001) . She eventually reunited with Polt and Müller for the historical comedy "Germanikus" (2004), but the film failed at the box-office and got generally unfavourable reviews.

Schneeberger won the 2006 German Television Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performances in Matti Geschonneck's "Silberhochzeit" (2006) and Vivian Naefe's "Leo". After playing Karl Valentin's long-time romantic partner Gisela Royes in Jo Baier's "Liesl Karlstadt und Karl Valentin" (2008), she starred in Vivian Naefe's drama "Mit einem Schlag" (2008), for which she was nominated for both the Bavarian and the German Television Award.

Between 2005 and 2006, Schneeberger also was a regular cast member of the TV series "Der Dicke". Her other TV credits include "Pilgerfahrt nach Padua" (2011), "Zwei übern Berg" (2011) and "Obendrüber da schneit es" (2012).

The successful theatrical release "Eine ganz heiße Nummer" had Schneeberger playing a struggling small-town shop owner who opens up a telephone sex-line with two female friends. In 2013, Gisela Schneeberger was awarded the Bayerische Verdienstorden, the highest civil commendation of Bavaria. The same year, she starred in the TV shows "Im Schleudergang" and "Add a Friend". For both roles, she won the 2014 German Actors Award. She next appeared opposite Gerhard Polt in the comedy "Und Äktschn!", which tells the story of an amateur filmmaker from rural Bavaria who dreams of shooting a box-office hit.
