The child actress Loni Nest came into touch with the film business at a very young age. She already appeared in front of the camera at the age of four weeks for the first time and at the age of one she made her stage debut.

She had her breakthrough in the film business in 1918 at the age of three with the movie "Dida Ibsens Geschichte" (18). It followed "Harakiri" (19), "Opium" (19) and "Die Ehe der Frau Mary" (19).

Loni Nest became the most busy child actress of the German silent film of the 20s and she took part in several legendary classics.

To her numerous roles of those years belong "Der Reigen" (20), "Patience" (20), "Johannes Goth" (20), "Der Golem, wie er in die Welt kam" (20) - in this movie she took part in a key scene when she caused the death of the Golem, "Das wandernde Bild" (20), "Schloss Vogelöd" (21), "Der Sträfling von Cayenne" (21), Murnau's "Nosferatu" (22), "Sterbende Völker" (22), "Versunkene Welten" (22), "Tragödie der Liebe" (23), "Der Evangelimann" (24), "Mutter und Kind" (24) and "Die freudlose Gasse" (25).

Finally her film career in Germany came to an end at the end of the 20s and she only appeared in the silent movies "La storia di una piccola Parigina" (28) and "Der Heilige und ihr Narr" (28).

She was not able to continue her film career as an adult. Only in the French production "L'épervier" (33) she acted in her only sound film.
