Helga Anders
Birth: Jan. 11, 1948
Death: Mar. 30, 1986

Actress, born Helga Scherz in Innsbruck, Tirol, on 11th January 1948, to an Austrian father and a German mother. After her parents separated, she was raised in rural south Germany by her mother: appearing on stage for the first time at the age of eight at the Stadttheatre Bielfeld, playing the part of Hinerle in ‘Der Fidele Bauer'.

Having being discovered by a talent scout at Tegernsee Bauerbhune, Helga was cast in the Ruhmannn film ‘Max der Taschenddieb', a role which earned her the then incredible sum of 2000 Marks at the age of twelve.

In 1962 Helga was cast as ‘Wendy Darling' in a television production of ‘Peter Pan', and ‘Forellenhof' and ‘Unverbesserlichen' soon followed. It is for her 1965 portrayal of ‘Julka' in the West German-Yugoslav co-production of ‘Ferien in Lipizza' {English title ‘White Horses'}, that she is perhaps best known outside her homeland.

Other early film roles include ‘Null Null Sex Am Wolfgangsee' where she met her future husband - eleven years her senior, photographer Roger Fritz.

The six year marriage produced a daughter, Tatiana Leslie. Helga Anders for a time becoming Helga-Anders Fritz.

Fritz gave Anders a lead role in the film ‘Madchen, Madchen,' for which she won a Bundesfilm prize. Later Helga went on to starring roles in such films as ‘Zuckerbrot und Peitsche' (1968) and ‘Unser Doktor ist der Beste' (1969).

Throughout the 1970s Helga Anders made multiple appearances in the long running West German television series ‘Derrick'.

In total, Helga was involved in some two hundred television productions and appeared in thirty big screen films. At her most brilliant on the stage, she was multitalented: but loneliness seems to have fuelled the addiction to alcohol that destroyed her bit by bit.

The last journey of Helga's life took her to two clinics. On Easter Sunday 1986 the actress, a shadow of her former self, was brought to the ‘Interne Klinik' of Dr. Agirov at Starnberger See. The following day she had to be transferred to a facility at Harr near Munich. Helga died later the same evening. Cause of death: hart failure.
