Alexandra Maria Plătăreanu (born November 12, 1978 in Bucharest), better known as Alexandra Maria Lara, is a Romanian-born German actress.

Her family fled Communist Romania in 1983 and settled in West Germany. She was trained in acting by her father, actor Valentin Plătăreanu.

She's been acting since the mid-1990s, but the role that definitely brought her the most attention and recognition is that of a young Traudl Junge, the private secretary of Adolf Hitler during the second half of World War II, in Downfall (Der Untergang), alongside Bruno Ganz as Hitler. She's been cast mostly in supporting roles ever since.

She is married to English actor Sam Riley since 2009.
