Creator: Sibel Kekilli

Sibel Kekilli (born 1980) is a German actress of Turkish heritage. She began acting in pornographic movies, but her first general film role was as the star of Fatih Akin's acclaimed 2004 movie Gegen die Wand (released under the title Head-On in English-speaking countries. No, not that one!) In 2006, she was in both the Turkish coup film Eve Dönüş as an official's wife and the Holocaust film Der letzte Zug as a Jewish woman on her way to a concentration camp. She won the Best Actress Lola for her role in the 2009 film Die Fremde.

Sibel Kekilli gained international attention in 2011 when she began playing Shae, Tyrion Lannister's Camp Follower-turned-mistress, in Game of Thrones. She also has become a regular on German crime series Tatort playing investigator Sarah Brandt, which is her first role as someone who is not somehow different.
