Vera Fischer was born to Hildegard and Emil Fischer, both of German ancestry, and raised Protestant in Blumenau, Santa Catarina, in Southern Brazil.[1] Her father was a Nazi. Fischer never had a good relationship with him: "My father was German, Nazi, and used to force me to read Hitler and he beat me a lot", she wrote in a recent autobiography.[2] Until age 5, Fischer only spoke German and started to learn Portuguese at school.[1]

Fischer was crowned Miss Brazil in 1969 which is what propelled her career to great fame. She also competed at Miss Universe 1969, becoming a semifinalist. The film that brought her onscreen reputation was A Superfêmea, a pornochanchada of 1973. She is considered a good actress and has won several awards. Among her theatrical appearances, she is best known for A Primeira Noite de Um Homem (2004), the adaptation of The Graduate by Miguel Falabella

She is considered as a notable sex symbol in Brazil. In 1982 and in 2000, she did nude photoshoots for the Brazilian issue of the Playboy magazine.

She starred in telenovelas such as O Clone ("The Clone") and Laços de Família ("Family Ties"). She has a daughter and a son from her respective marriages.
