Marion Michael (17 October 1940 – 13 October 2007) was a German film actress and singer. She was best known for her role in the 1956 film, Liane, Jungle Goddess. She was also the second German actress, after Hildegard Knef, to appear nube on film, when she starred in the German film The Sinner in the 1950s.Michael was born Marion Ilonka Michaela Delonge in Königsberg (now Kaliningrad). She was selected for the role of Liane in Liane, Jungle Goddess out of 12,000 prospective actresses. She was only 16 at the time of the filming, which took place on location in Africa, and she controversially appeared topless during the first half of the movie. The movie was a box office success. However, none of her following 10 films over the next six years were as successful.Michael suffered injuries in a car accident during this time period.
