Biography
At an autograph session in Vienna, Frit Lang was asked by a young, blonde girl "Can't you give me a role in your next movie?". It was the right moment and place for Lien Deyers to ask Lang, as he had an important role open in his next movie which fitted Deyers perfectly. Thus 18 year old Lien Deyers moved to Berlin and made her film debut in Spione (Spies) in 1928.

Lien Deyers was born in Amsterdam, but was raised in Vienna. After Spione she had a big carreer in Germany playing roles in 34 films within 8 years; she survived the transition from silent film to talkies with ease. After the Nazis came to power in Germany, working became impossible for her husband the Jewish director Alfred Zeisler. The couple moved to Great-Britain in 1935 and to the USA in 1937. Deyers didn't get any English spoken roles and soon after arrival in the USA the couple divorced.

Life went downward for Deyers, she had a small shop but became a real alcoholic. The only signs of life were arrests and a stay in Clark County Jail in 1964. She gave her last sign of life in 1982 when she sent a postcard to Heinz Rühmann.
