Who Is Uschi Glas?
Helga Ursula “Uschi” Glas, often credited as Ursula Glas, is a German actress, singer, and stage performer.
She was born in Landau a der Isar, Bavaria, on March 2, 1944.
Glas began her cinematic career in 1965, beginning with little roles. Her breakout role, however, was as Barbara in the unorthodox 1968 film “Go for It, Baby” (Zur Sache, Schätzchen).
The film captured the spirit of the times, depicting teenage protests against the German establishment as well as changing values amid the sexual revolution.
The tabloid press dubbed Glas “Schätzchen” for his performance in this role.
Glas featured in numerous comedic films during the late 1960s and early 1970s, including three films in the seven-part series “Die Lümmel von der ersten Bank” (The Brats on the Front Bench Row, 1967-1972).
She also appeared in five comedy films with singer Roy Black, confirming her place in the entertainment world. Glas moved her concentration to television work in the 1980s and 1990s.
She portrayed several roles in a series of TV programmes made exclusively for her. A veterinarian in “Tierärztin Christine” (1993), an active businesswoman in “Anna Maria – Eine Frau geht ihren Weg” (Anna Maria – A Woman Does It Her Way, 1995-1996), and the ideal teacher in “Sylvia – Eine Klasse für sich” (Sylvia – A Class of Her Own, 1998-2000) are among her famous roles.
Glas also appeared in a number of feature-length made-for-TV films. She has appeared in over 75 film and television productions during her career.
Glas was married to film producer Bernd Tewaag from 1981 till 2003 when they divorced. They had three children together.
She married business consultant Dieter Herrmann in 2005 and became Sophie Hermann’s stepmother. Sophie is a fashion designer and social media influencer who stars on the UK reality show “Made in Chelsea.”
Glas wrote her memoir “Mit einem Lächeln” (With a Smile) in 2004, in which she shared her experiences and views from her work in the entertainment world.
