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, and beating out 300 girls in the competition. Shortly after that, she won her first big role in one of Romania's first sitcoms, "Casatorie de proba" ("Probation Marriage"), playing the part of "Flori" a smart but funny teenager. 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 - "Amintiri din epoca de aur", directed by Cristian Mungiu, winner of the "Palme d'Or" at the Cannes Film Festival in 2009. "Amintiri din epoca de aur" 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 most challenging part yet, "Selena" in the movie "Periferic". Although still very young she already got to act under the guidance of great film directors, and there's still more to come.
