Annie Markart was the daughter of Franz Josef Markart, a building company owner. Her mother died in 1920. She was educated as a tailor and in 1922 she took ballet lessons. After having singing lessons as well, she played small parts in operettas en comedies. In 1929 she was engaged at the Wiener Kammerspiele.

In 1930 she made her film debut in the silent movie "Die Tat des Andreas Harmer". She moved to Berlin and she married director Herbert Selpin (1902-1942) in 1933. A divorce followed in 1937. Subsequently she married actor Alexander Golling (1905-1989), but in 1941 this marriage ended in divorce as well.

During the thirties she made a lot of movies. In 1934 she was in "Das Blumenmädchen vom Grand-Hotel" and in 1935 she played Ottilli in "Im weißen RößlI". In 1938 she moved to Munich and in 1939 she could be seen in two more movies. Her last important role was in "Gold in New Frisco" (1939). In 1942 she appeared in "Anuschka".

After the war she worked as an interpreter for the US Army. She briefly returned to films in 1955 but she only had two small parts in "Hanussen" and "Der Teufel mit den drei goldenen Haaren", in which her former husband Alexander Golling appeared as well.

She left public life afterwards and nothing is known about her life after 1955. She died in 1991 and was buried at the Waldfriedhof in Munich in the grave where actress Gretl Theimer was buried nineteen years before. Walter Fiedler, another actor, was buried in that grave as well after his death in 2012.
