ABOUT ME

Born in 1996 in Vienna, Valentina Himmelbauer grew up as a Burgenland Croatian in a small town in southeastern Austria. Fascinated by the world of film and theatre from quite an early age, after finishing the Bilingual Federal High School in Oberwart, she couldn’t help it but turn her passion into a profession: She started her acting training at Vienna’s Filmacademy (Acting school for Theatre and Film), which she successfully completed in 2018, followed by the Stage Readiness Examination, which she passed in 2019 at the Kammerspiele Theatre in Vienna.
Previous productions have taken the young actress to the inclusive Theatre Delphin, the Theatre in the Bunker in Mödling and Vienna’s Theatre Spielraum, among others. She also appeared in front of the camera in various productions, such as the feature film Wenn die Heidelerche singt (When the Woodlark Sings) by Austrian director Ana Bilić, in which she played the female lead.
As a screenwriter and director she made her debut within the experimental short film project Die Frage nach dem Fenster (The Question around the Window), on which she worked together with Myriam Angela and Tess Hermann.

In addition to her passion in acting, her interest in history also prompted her to take up a bachelor's degree in history at the University of Vienna, which she completed in 2021.
