Brigitte Beier was born on October 24, 1939 in Berlin, Berlin, Germany. Beier is the daughter of the press cartoonist and caricaturist Alfred Beier-Red . She was usually seen in crime films and in several episodes of ‘Police 110’ TV series.
Her film debut was in 1964 in the DEFA drama film directed by Heiner Carow's “Die Hochzeit von Länneken”. In this screen adaptation from the novel by Herbert Nachbar she played the daughter of a fisherman Bärbel Pröpping that works with her great love, the young fisherman's son Henning Grabe, for an equitable distribution of fishing grounds among all fishermen. In 1971 she played under the direction of Claus Dobberke the role of Maria Ritter in the political drama “Verspielte Heimat”.
