Dorothea Wieck (3 January 1908 in Davos, Switzerland – 19 February 1986 in Berlin, West Germany) was a German theatre and film actress.

Early years

Wieck was born Dorothea Bertha Olivia Wieck and grew up in southern Germany and Sweden. She was descended from musician Clara Schumann.

Wieck appeared in around 50 films and played on the stages of many large theatres, notably at the Deutsches Theater and the Schillertheater, Berlin. She also worked as a theatre director. After World War II, she appeared in films only in supporting roles, and she withdrew from films almost entirely in the early 1960s.

In 1973, Wieck received the Film Ribbon in Gold of the Deutscher Filmpreis for long and outstanding achievements in German film.
