Pagé, Ilse


Ilse Pagé was born on May 29, 1939, in Berlin, where she was privately tutored and studied at the Max Reinhardt School of Performing Arts. Although she had little experience, director Gerhard Klein gave her the female lead in his film Berlin – Ecke Schönhauser.


Thereafter, Pagé demonstrated great breadth as an actress. She not only performed at the Berlin Schiller Theater from 1959 to 1966, but also appeared in comedic parts in more than fifty film and television productions, acting opposite well-known actors, such as Heinz Rühmann and Gert Fröbe, as well as Siegfried Schürenberg in several Edgar Wallace crime films.


Ilse Pagé was part of the team of actors in Volker Schlöndorff's film Die Blechtrommel, which was awarded an Oscar. She was also selected to dub films into German for such great performers as Liza Minelli, in That's Entertainment (1974), and Karen Black, in The Day of Locust (1975). Ilse Pagé lives in Berlin.
