Name: Franka Potente
DOB: July 22, 1974 in Münster Germany
Claim to fame: She’s best known for her break through role as the fiery haired protagonist “Lola” in Tom Tykwer’s 1999 hit “Lola rennt” aka “Run Lola Run”. She’s also had supporting roles, usually as the love interest, in American movies such as “Blow” and the “Bourne” franchise.
Background: She is from Germany and of Italian heritage. Her look is different from the typical show business plastic Bratz dolls that, I think, execs are wary to cast her. But she’s a beauty who’s really underrated in Hollywood.
