Sibel Kekilli was born into a Turkish family which had moved to Germany in 1977 and settled in Heilbronn. After finishing her schooling with excellent grades at 16, Kekilli spent 30 months in the program to become a certified public administration specialist at the local city, and then worked in Heilbronn’s city hall for two years. After that, Sibel moved to Essen, where she worked various jobs as a bouncer, waitress, night club manager, and pornographic actress.

From 2001 to 2004, Kekilli appeared in more than a dozen adult movies, which helped her to significantly increase her net worth and pursue a “real” acting career, although she became an actress by coincidence; the casting director noticed her at a shopping mall in Cologne in 2002 and invited her to audition for the film called “Head-On”. Sibel got the part ahead of 250 other actresses and the movie launched her career and brought her a lot of popularity. Kekilli then moved to Hamburg, and appeared in numerous German films such as “Kebab Connection” (2004) and “Winterreise” (2006). Also in 2006, Sibel played in Hal Hartley’s “Fay Grim” starring Parker Posey, Jeff Goldblum, and Liam Aiken, while the same year, she appeared in “The Last Train”. By the end of thedecade, Kekilli had worked in “Eve Dönüs” (2006) and starred in “Playground” (2009), significantly lifting her net worth.

From 2010, Sibel has been playing Sarah Brandt in the popular German TV series “Tatort”, and so far has appeared in 14 episodes with the show still running. Also in 2010, Kekilli starred in Feo Aladag’s “When We Leave”, and then had a role in the comedy “What a Man” (2011). From 2011 to 2014, Sibel played Shae in 20 episodes of the Golden Globe Award-winning series “Game of Thrones”, and that role additionally increased her net worth and helped in raising her popularity. In the meantime, she filmed “Die Männer der Emden” in 2012, and currently she is working on her next movie called “Im Feuer’, which will be released late in 2017.

Regarding her personal life, Sibel Kekilli’s most intimate details such as marital status and any children are unknown, as she successfully manages to keep them out of the public eye. It is known that she currently resides in Hamburg, Germany.

She is a well-known activist and supports the organization that works against violence against women called Terre des Femmes.

Quotes

#Quote
1I wasn't a competitor. I would play outside with my friends, but not really anything like ballet or soccer. I tried to play soccer, and it went badly.
2The pressure in Hollywood is bigger to look good than in Germany. In Germany, we are more forgiving. Having a personal coach in Germany is not nearly as common as in Hollywood. In Hollywood, I think everyone has a personal trainer.
3Acting for me is like a ping-pong game. That's the secret of acting. When you have a really good actor, I always want to be as good as he is or she is.
4I have to make sure I don't eat too much chocolate. You can't imagine how hard that is for a German to not eat chocolate.
5I'd like to say it is only average people who revel in the mistakes of others.
6If you move to Canada, after a few years you call yourself Canadian. In Germany, it's difficult to belong.
7It's not my passion to wake up at 6:00 in the morning to do my exercises. Sometimes I really hate it. I'm lazy.
