Born in the capital of Romania, Bucharest, Ingrid attended the prestigious German College "Goethe". There, besides the basic German language, she also studied English, French and Latin. During college she started acting, winning the first audition she went to, for an international commercial, with over 300 girls in the competition. Shortly after that, she got her first big part in one of Romania's first sitcoms, "Casatorie de proba" (Probation Marriage) in 2004, playing the part of Flori a smart and funny teenager. Her first movie role, she plays alongside Ben Kingsley in "Bloodrayne" at only 16. After finishing college, she enrolled at the Hyperion Acting University where she got the highest score on her admission. During that she got to play the part of "Viviana" in the movie "Tales From The Golden Age", directed by Cristian Mungiu, winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2009. "Tales From The Golden Age" was nominated 6 times at the Cannes Film Festival. Finishing the University on the same high note, Ingrid continued the streak of good films, taking on the part of "Selena" in the movie "Periferic" (Outbound). Wanting to expand her horizon she took parts in big Hollywood movie productions, such as "The Dark Prince" where she plays "Minerva" alongside Jon Voight, and her last film directed by Terry Gilliam, "The Zero Theorem". Although very young she already got to act under the guidance of great film directors, and there's still more to come.
