Gila von Weitershausen
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Baroness Gila von Weitershausen (born March 21, 1944 (age 67) ) is a German actress. Born in Trebnitz, (today Trzebnica), Lower Silesia, Germany (today Poland) into an aristocratic family, she has three brothers and two sister and is the great-granddaughter of Georg Graf von Hertling. Gila von Weitershausen became popular in the late 1960s when she appeared in German comedy films, for example alongside Uschi Glas. One of the films from that period about swinging sixties Bavaria, Engelchen oder Die Jungfrau von Bamberg, gave her the nickname Engelchen ("Little Angel"), which was used by the tabloid press for decades. She also appeared several times as "Rowena" in the British TV series Arthur of the Britons. By common consent one of her best performances so far has been in Die Fälschung (Circle of Deceit) (1981), a film directed by Volker Schlöndorff, where she played opposite Hanna Schygulla and Bruno Ganz.
