Kusserow was born in Wollstein, Province of Posen, Germany (today Wolsztyn, Poland).[1]

She starred in Nazi propaganda films during the Third Reich, which she wrote about in a 1949 memoir I Was Hitler's Mickey Mouse.[2]

Kusserow married Percy Graf Welsburg in November 1941; they hoped to get away to Switzerland and Italy but in fact had to remain in Berlin throughout the war, which she describes in a 1948 memoir Enough, no More. They finally emigrated to Britain in 1947 and lived in St John's Wood, London[3] and she restarted her acting career, usually appearing as Ingeborg Wells. Kusserow retired in 1960 and divorced Welsburg, but married again in 1968 to Kenneth Slingsby-Fahn (1913–2007), a retired RAF officer. Their life together in their garden flat in Abercorn Place has been recounted in a memoir by a neighbour.[4]

In 1979 she and her husband relocated to a cottage in Houghton, West Sussex where Kenneth died in 2007. Kusserow lived alone until 2013, when she suffered a fall and had to live in a care home until her death a year later.

She is known for her appearance in the 1951 film Captain Horatio Hornblower and in the German adaptation of the play You Know I Can't Hear You When the Water's Running. She played Lady Irina in episode 21 "The Vandals" in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1956).


Kusserow died on 14 April 2014.[5] Before her death she reportedly fell and broke a femur. She survived but as a result of the injury her health declined severely.
