German-American actress of international films. Born the daughter of a Lutheran Minister, she attended a German university.

She may be best remembered for "The Prize," 1963 and "A Shot in the Dark," 1964.

Sommer speaks seven languages. She married writer Joe Hyam in 1964, residing in Southern California. Her second husband was Wolf Wolter, whom she had known since 1986 and married in 1994.
