This German actress seems to have finally hit her stride. After playing "Ines Schneider" on the hit series Kommissar Rex in early 2001, the producers of the show were so impressed with her performance that they gave her the role of "Niki Herzog" later in the season. This, of course, comes after she has spent a good deal of time in more or less average German movies and series that didn't serve to show off her immeasurable talents, and thus did nothing for her career. Of course, being in the German Screen Actor's Guild, Elke Winkens has performed her civic duty by showing off her lithe frame a few times on camera. Her first, and perhaps her best, Skin scene appeared in 1998's Helden in Tirol, in which she has a more or less explicit sex scene which, while dimly lit, reveals a lot more than one would expect from a made-for-TV movie. She followed that one up with a nice topless turn in 1999's Untersuchung an Madeln which was better lit and a bit longer, but had none of the sexy overtones of her previous turn.
