Former Miss Austria Beauty Becomes Queen of Indie Cinema

An actress since nine years old, former Miss Vienna and Miss Austria – Inge Jaklin returns to the big screen this summer, in not one, but three indie hits. A golden age beauty, the actress saw the sign of things to come when she won the Film Star of Tomorrow award in Austria at age 16.

At 17, she had her first starring role, after jetting around the globe next for the Miss World Pageant that landed the young model in Hollywood where eyes of the studios were on the young talent.

Inge Jaklin made early fame in the legendary TV show ‘Hogan’s Heroes,’ and ‘It Takes A Thief’ with Robert Wagner among more. After theatrical appearances in films including ‘In Like Flint’ among others, Inge Jaklin launched a successful singing career that spanned the globe, singing on the TV show ‘Backstage Life,’ ‘Life Across America,’ starring on the strip in Las Vegas, and being elected to sing for President George W.
