Sybil Danning (originally born as Sybille Johanna Danninger) was born on May 24th, 1952 in Wels, Austria.
She was the daughter of a major in the United States Army, and an Austrian mother. After growing up on various Army bases around the world, she returned to Austria where she worked as a dental hygienist. She worked as a cosmetologist, where she began modeling. Her first film appearances started in 1968 in German language films.
In 1978, Sybil moved to Hollywood. She began appearing in several Roger Corman-produced films as well as mainstream movies.
She has been married to Horst Lasse since 1991. Although she had a long absence from filmmaking due to a herniated disc, she began appearing in new roles in the late 2000s. She now works mainly as a producer.
For a while in the early 2000s, Danning had partial ownership of the ice hockey team SC Riessersee.
