Emine Sevgi Özdamar (born 10 August 1946, in Malatya, Turkey), is a Turkish-German actress, director and author.

Özdamar has received a lot of recognition for her work. A lover of poetry, she found great inspiration in the works of Heinrich Heine and Bertolt Brecht, especially from an album of the latter's songs which she had bought in the 1960s in Berlin. She later decided to study with Brecht's disciple Benno Besson in Berlin, where she currently[when?] resides.[1]
