German actress Sibel Kekilli became famous after winning two Lolas, the prestigious German film awards, for her performance in Head On and When We Leave. Prior to becoming an actress, though, she worked various jobs. Her first job was serving the local city government as an administrative assistant before working for the municipal waste disposal for two years. Subsequently, she also became a saleswoman, cleaner, manager of a nightclub and promoter.
In 2002, Kekilli was discovered by a casting director at a mall and encouraged her to audition for a movie. She landed the lead in Head On and the rest is history.
Since landing her big break, Kekilli has appeared in numerous films and TV series. At present, she is one of the cast members of the highly acclaimed HBO series Game of Thrones, playing a prostitute named Shae.
