Angelica Domröse (born 4 April 1941 in Berlin) is a German actress, who became famous in the role of Paula in Heiner Carow's film The Legend of Paul and Paula. Her Mediterranean appearance is the result of her biological father being a prisoner of war from France.
After training as a shorthand typist Domröse worked in a state-run foreign trade enterprise in East Germany. In 1958 she was discovered by the director Slatan Dudow and in 1961 attended the film university Potsdam-Babelsberg. In 1966 she joined the Berliner Ensemble, where among other things she performed in Brecht's Dreigroschenoper, Schwejk im zweiten Weltkrieg and Die Tage der Commune, as well as in Helmut Baierl's Frau Flinz. She later worked with the Volksbühne Berlin until 1979, with whom she performed in plays by George Bernard Shaw, William Shakespeare and Peter Hacks. She also worked for the Deutsche Film-Aktiengesellschaft (DEFA) and Deutscher Fernsehfunk. In 1971, 1973 and 1975 she was nominated television actress of the year, and in 1976 she won the National Prize of East Germany.
In 1980 she left the GDR and moved to West Germany.
