The actress Mady Christians was born as Marguerite Maria Christians. Her family was an artist family and because her father Rudolf Christians and her mother Bertha Klein were most of the time on tour, Mady Christians spent most of her life in a Berliner monastery of the Ursulinerinnen since her sixth year.

When her father took over a German theater in the USA, the whole family went to the USA where Mady Christians made her film debut with "Audrey" (16). But after the outbreak of World War I Mady Christians returned with her mother to Berlin.

There she could find some work at Max Reinhardt's theater through some of his friends. Finally she was monopolized by the new cinema world and in the following years she appeared in many German silent movies, among them you find productions like "Nachtschatten" (18), "Die Nacht des Grauens" (19), "Die Gesunkenen" (19), "Das Weib des Pharao" (22), "Ein Glas Wasser" (23), "Michael" (24) and "Königin Luise" (28).

The German sound film offered her only little work like "Das Schicksal der Renate Langen" (31) and "Friederike", before she emigrated to the USA in 1933. There she continued actin successful at theaters and she also appeared in several successful pictures like "The Only Girl" (33) with Charles Boyer, "Escapade/Masquerade" (35) with William Powell, "Seventh Heaven" (37) with James Stewart, "Tender Comrade" (43) with Ginger Rogers and "All My Sons - All meine Söhne" (48) with Burt Lancaster and Edward G.
