Born in Belgrade, Serbia and raised in Frankfurt, Anica Dobra calls both Germany and the Balkans her home. Being a thoroughbred actress and having enjoyed the best in stage- and on-camera training, Anica Dobra is very busy working in both countries. She became well-known in the 1990s in Germany when she worked together with the finest of directors mainly in comedies for the big screen but also in crime and drama feature films for TV. During that time, which was marked by intense political upheaval in the Balkans, she exhibited her remarkable talent in that region by portraying heavily conflicted protagonists. Her characters take control in a straightforward, hard-hitting, and pugnacious manner. She was awarded Best Actress several times. Anica Dobra is a frequent traveler since her family lives in Belgrade and she herself is a star in Serbia.  But she also feels drawn to Munich, Germany which is her second home. Audiences love her for her unconventional beauty and charming wit. Here in Germany we’ve come to picturing her playing in films that allow fresh subject matters to be tackled from a humorous point of view. Take some time and check out the clips of the Serbian TV series „Black and White World“ on her current reel. To most it will obviously be incomprehensible (subtitles are to follow soon), but her body language alone is simply hilarious.
