Maria Byk was engaged at the Münchener Kammerspiele from 1925
to 1938. She also appeared in several movies during the 1930s,
among them "Der Sündige Hof" (1933) and "Er weiß was er will"
(1935). In 1925 she married the Jewish actor and director Julius
Gellner. In 1926 they had a daughter, Johanna, who called herself
Joan Gellner in later years.|
In 1927 she divorced Gellner and in 1929 she married the actor Ferdinand Marian. Marian died during a car crash in 1946 under unclear circumstances. During the trial of Veit Harlan, the director of "Jud Süss" (in which Ferdinand Marian had been forced by the nazi's to play the title part), she gave evidence in favour of Harlan. She committed suicide soon afterwards and was found drowned. In a letter to friends she complained of the situation that artists were in after the war. She was buried next to her husband.
