In 1986, Radost Bokel got the leading role in the film adaptation of the Michael Ende classic Momo. At the time, the then eleven-year-old Bokel lived in Frankfurt am Main, where she attended the Schillergymnasium and later graduated from high school. It was in this environment that she gained her first stage experience, performing My Fair Lady and The Jungle Book with a theater group.
At the casting for Momo, Bokel prevailed among thousands of applicants and in 1985 spent three and a half months in Rome shooting the entire film in English alongside Mario Adorf and Armin Mueller-Stahl. For her role of Momo, she was awarded the Bambi (1986), the Francois Truffaut Prize (1986) and the Bravo Otto in Bronze (1986), among others.
This was followed by several cinema roles, various TV productions and roles in the theater. For example, Radost Bokel starred with Klaus-Jürgen Wussow and Hannelore Elsner in the film version of Johannes Mario Simmel’s Bitte lasst die Blumen leben and in the cinema production Das erste Semester alongside Christian Kahrmann. She also appeared in international productions such as the adventure series Das Geheimnis der Sahara (Il segreto del Sahara) in Morocco alongside Andie MacDowell, Michael York and Ben Kingsley.
On TV, Bokel has enjoyed success in various crime series, including Tatort, Der Fahnder, Wolffs Revier, SOKO Kitzbühel and, until 2011, Der Staatsanwalt.
In addition to her acting career, she has also worked as a voice actress since 1986 and lent her voice, for example, to the little girl Roskva in the Danish animated film Valhalla. Later she also dubbed audio books such as Windträume and Cathy’s Book.
Of course, magazines such as “Playboy”, “FHM” and “Maxim” also became aware of the pretty actress and made beautiful photo spreads with her.
