Franka Potente played roles in several German films before she gained worldwide recognition for her title role in Tom Tykwer's "Run Lola Run," which won an Audience Award at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival and the Best Foreign Film award at the Independent Spirit Awards in 2000. She took on the role of Marie Helena Kreutz opposite Matt Damon in Universal's "The Bourne Identity" and its sequel "The Bourne Supremacy." Potente also starred with Elijah Wood and Mandy Moore in "Try Seventeen."

In addition, Potente appeared in "Eichmann," a film based upon the final confession of Adolf Eichmann; Christopher Smith's "Creep"; and "Che," a biopic about Che Guevara, which re-teamed her with Benicio Del Toro, Benjamin Bratt and Ryan Gosling. More recently Potente was seen in "The Conjuring 2" with Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson.

On television, Potente starred in "Copper" on BBC America as Eva Heissan, a shrewd businesswoman and the Madam of Eva's Paradise. She also appeared as the main villainess in the second season of FX's "The Bridge" and guest-starred in episodes of "Psych," "House" and "The Shield."
