|Born||16 May 1961|
|Died||11 January 2007 (aged 45)|
Her debut as a film actress was in Wings of Desire (1987), by Wim Wenders. She learned circus acrobatics for the role in only eight weeks, and performed without using a stunt double. She co-authored Until the End of the World (1991) with Wenders and travelled around the world with him in search of locations for the project.
Wim Wenders said about Until the End of the World: "Solveig Dommartin and I had written the story of our film together, and we thought that we only had the right to enter into such a sacred area like a person's dreams, if we would bring something into the work that was sacred to ourselves".
Dommartin died of a heart attack in Paris in 2007 at the age of 45.
