She died of cancer and heart disease in Los Angeles, California and was interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Westwood, California. Since February 2003, Senta Berger has been president of the German Film Academy, who want to advance the new generation of actors and actresses in Germany and Europe and who will decide the assignment of the German Film Awards in the future. She was also the star of Our Miss Brooks, a sitcom which aired on both radio (1948 - 1952) and television (1952 - 1956). In the same year, she also started a career as a singer of Chansons. She played in many movies, including Grease, in which she played the principal, and the secretary in Anatomy of a Murder. Afterwards further serial hits follow, like “The fast Gerti”, where she plays a taxi driver. Eve Arden (April 30, 1908–November 12, 1990) was an American actress born as Eunice Quedens in Mill Valley, California. In 1985/86, she started a comeback in front of German-speaking audiences in the very poular TV serial “Kir Royal”.
Between 1974 and 1982, she played the “Buhlschaft” in the play “Jedermannn” at the Salzburg Festival with Curd Jürgens and Maximilian Schell. She successfully played at the Burgtheater in Vienna, at the Thaliatheater in Hamburg and at the Schillertheater in Berlin. The birth of her two sons caused Senta to turn back to the theatre. Berger continued to develop her European career in France and Italy.
Other internationally successful films made by the duo included, amongst others, Die weiße Rose, The terrible girl (Das schreckliche Mädchen) and Mutters Courage. In 1970, she starred for the first time in a film produced by her own company and directed by her husband. In 1966, they married, after starting up their own film production company the previous year. In 1963, Berger met Michael Verhoeven, son of the German film director Paul Verhoeven (not the Dutch Paul Verhoeven).
An offer for a series role, which would have brought an obligation of several years with itself, was the reason for their return to Germany. In 1962, she went to Hollywood and worked with stars such as Charlton Heston, Frank Sinatra, John Wayne and Yul Brynner. Brauner used Senta Berger in several films, but soon she tired of musicals. More and more directors and producers wanted to work with her, for example Bernhard Wicki and Arthur Brauner, who produced the film The Good Soldier Schweijk with Berger and Heinz Rühmann, a famous German actor.
Her ambition was still to be a film actress. In 1958, she became the youngest member of the Josefstadt theatre in Vienna. She applied for the Max Reinhardt Seminar, a famous acting school in Vienna, and was accepted, shortly afterwards was forced to leave, because she had accepted a film role without permission. In 1957, she won her first small role in a film.
Berger then took private acting lessons. But her dream of a career as a dancer was destroyed by her last teacher, who did not like the physical changes in Senta during puberty. At the age of five she started ballet lessons. With him, Senta first appeared on stage at the age of four, where he accompanied his daughter's singing on the piano.
Her father, from whom she probably inherited talent, was a musician. Senta Berger's parents were not rich, but tried everything to meet the desires of their daughter. Senta Berger (born May 13, 1941, in Vienna) is an Austrian actress and producer.
