Nina Hoss (German: [ˈniːna hɔs] ( listen ); born 7 July 1975) is a German stage and film actress.
Hoss was born in Stuttgart, West Germany. Her father, Willi Hoss, was a German trade unionist and politician (member of the Bundestag with The Greens). Her mother, Heidemarie Rohweder , was an actress at Stuttgart National Theatre and later director of the Esslingen-based Württemberg State Playhouse (Württembergische Landesbühne Esslingen).
Hoss acted in radio plays at the age of seven and appeared on stage for the first time at the age of 14.
In 1997, Hoss graduated from the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts in Berlin. Her first major success was the title role Rosemarie Nitribitt of Bernd Eichinger's A Girl Called Rosemary in 1996, a period drama (based on an actual scandal) set in the 1950s that looks back at the days of West Germany's postwar Wirtschaftswunder with, what a New York Times review calls a "curdling cynicism".
In 2000, Hoss was one of the Shooting Stars at the Berlinale. Her close collaboration with director Christian Petzold has been extremely successful: she won the 2003 Adolf Grimme Award for her role in his film Something to Remind Me and two years later the Adolf Grimme Award in Gold for Wolfsburg .

In a review of her 2009 film A Woman in Berlin , The New York Times remarked that Hoss, "whose strong frame and graceful bearing suggest both old-style movie-star glamour and Aryan ideals of feminine beauty, is an actress of haunting subtlety, and the film, episodic, ambitious and a few beats too long, is held together by the force of her performance." The Washington Post, reviewing Phoenix (2015), again directed by Petzold, wrote "Hoss’s breathtaking portrayal, especially in the film’s final minutes, makes it clear why director Christian Petzold has made a habit of working with her". She later made her name in Hollywood playing a German agent in three seasons of the series Homeland (2014–17). Hoss starred in the 2020 miniseries The Defeated , and will be a series regular in season three of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan in 2022.
