Adele Sandrock (German: [aˈdeːlə ˈzantˌʁɔk] (listen); born Adele Feldern-Förster; August 19, 1863 – August 30, 1937) was a German-Dutch actress. After a successful theatrical career, she became one of the first German movie stars.

Early life

Sandrock was born in Rotterdam, Netherlands, the daughter of the German merchant Eduard Sandrock (1834–1897) and his Dutch wife, Johanna Simonetta ten Hagen (1833–1917). With sister Wilhelmine (1861-1948) and brother Christian (1862–1924), she grew up in Rotterdam, and, after her parents' divorce on 15 November 1869, in Berlin.


In 1878 at the age of fifteen, Sandrock made her debut as Selma in Mutter und Sohn by Charlotte Birch-Pfeiffer. In Berlin she met the famous Meiningen Ensemble and achieved success at the theatre of Meiningen, where her first role was Luise in Friedrich Schiller's Intrigue and Love, followed by further engagements in Moscow, Wiener Neustadt, and Budapest.

In 1889, she had her breakthrough at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna and afterwards became a member of the Volkstheater ensemble. She created a number of major roles for modern playwrights including Henrik Ibsen and Arthur Schnitzler, with whom she had a notoriously stormy affair, later perpetuated in his play La Ronde.

She was briefly engaged to marry author Alexander Roda Roda, who integrated the experience in his writing. From 1895, she performed at the Burgtheater, however, she provoked disagreement concerning both her contract and her private life, and she left for an extended European tour in 1898. Back at the Volkstheater in 1902, she was not able to continue her success on the stage. In 1905, she moved back to Berlin, to work at the Deutsches Theater led by Max Reinhardt.

In 1911 Sandrock made her silent film debut in Marianne, ein Weib aus dem Volk, a short subject. She acted in more than 140 films, working with a number of directors including Reinhold Schünzel and Hans Hinrich, and even continued her career into the sound film era with her characteristic dark voice. Her autobiography, Mein Leben, was published in 1940.


Sandrock died on August 30, 1937, in Berlin, Germany at the age of 74.[citation needed]
