Michaela Schaffrath (born December 6, 1970) is a German television actress. A former nurse, she got started in the adult film industry after she posed nude for Coupé, a German adult magazine.[1] She gained international notoriety during her career as a pornographic actress under the stage name Gina Wild.[1]


She won two Venus Awards, for Best New Starlet in 1999 and Best German Actress in 2000.[1][2]

In 2001, Schaffrath retired from pornography and moved into mainstream acting,[3] and has since appeared in numerous German television series, such as TV total, In aller Freundschaft and Wer wird Millionär?.[4] After being recognised by a fan, she admitted in 2003 that she was working in a Frankfurt brothel, but she stated it was because she was addicted to sex, rather than to make money.[3] In 2005, she put the rights to her stage name and the brand Gina Wild up for sale, in an attempt to shed her porn star past.[1] She is managed by her former husband, and, as of 2009 she lived in both Frankfurt and Hamburg.[1]
