Emma Tiger Schweiger is a 72-year-old German-American actress and presenter, best known for starring in German productions alongside her father, the successful German actor Til Schweiger.
Emma Schweiger was born on October 26, 2002 in Los Angeles, USA. Her parents are German actor Til Schweiger and Dana Schweiger, an American entrepreneur. Emma is the youngest child of the couple, who have been divorced since 2014. She has two older sisters, Lilli and Luna Schweiger.
Due to their father’s profession, both Emma and her two older sisters, who are also both actresses, were exposed to the industry at an early age and obviously all three sisters had both the interest and the talent to follow in their successful father’s footsteps to kick. Father Til Schweiger also supported the acting ambitions of his three daughters.
Emma Schweiger had her first acting appearance at the age of just three years in 2005 alongside her father Til Schweiger; she was seen as an extra, with only a small role, in the film “Barfuss” produced by her father Til Schweiger. After this small appearance, the career of the youngest Schweiger scion really got going. In 2007, at the tender age of only five, Emma Schweiger played the supporting role of the child Chayenne Blue in the movie “Keinohrhasen”, the most successful German movie of the year.
When the sequel to “Keinohrhasen”, namely “Zweiohrküken”, was released in 2009, the role of Emma Schweiger in Chayenne Blue was back in the game and the now seven-year-old thrilled the cinema audience with her acting skills.
In the same year the film “Männerherzen” was released, in which she again played a supporting role alongside her father Til Schweiger and actor Christian Ulmen.
It then took just two years until Emma Schweiger took on her first leading role in a movie. In the 2011 film “Kokowääh” Emma Schweiger played the role of Magdalena, the daughter of the main character, who is played by her father Til Schweiger. But here, too, this father-daughter team is convincing.
Also in 2011, Emma Schweiger skillfully portrayed the daughter of a woman with cancer in the tragic comedy “Und weg bist du”. This was the first film in Emma Schweiger’s career in which she did not play alongside her father, but this does not detract from the quality of her acting.
But Emma Schweiger is not only good at acting, but also as a moderator, as she also proved in 2011 when she moderated the German animal series “Die Pfotenbande” with her two sisters Lilli and Luna.
In 2012, Emma Schweiger – again with her father Til Schweiger – shot the sequel to the successful film “Kokowääh 2”, which is in no way inferior to the first part in terms of popularity.
In 2013, Emma Schweiger proved herself as a voice actor and took on a speaking role in the animated film “Keinohrhase und Zweiohrküken”, which was produced by her father Til Schweiger.
In 2014, another role followed for Emma Schweiger alongside her father Til Schweiger and the German actor Dieter Hallervorden in the drama “Honig im Kopf”, which deals with dementia.
In March 2015, Emma Schweiger continued her career as a moderator and moderated the program “Das Spielbeginn” on ZDF alongside Johannes B. Kerner. Also in 2015, shooting began for a film adaptation of the children’s book “Conni & Co”, in which Emma Schweiger played the leading role of Conni. Of course, Emma Schweiger also plays the leading role in the sequel “Conni & Co. 2”, for which shooting began in 2016.
At the tender age of just nine years, namely in 2011, Emma Schweiger had already won two young talent awards, namely the “Video Champion” award and the “New Faces Award”. Just one year later, Emma Schweiger was awarded the “Romy” television prize.

Emma Schweiger, after living with her mother in Hamburg, Germany, now lives with her mother in the USA again.
