Hedwig Pauly was the daughter of an actor. She wanted to become a singer and attended the Stern'sche Konservatorium in Berlin. After it became clear that her voice wasn't fit for the opera she decided to become an actress and she debuted in Krefeld. In 1890 she moved to Magdeburg and in the next season she worked in Bremen, where she played serious parts like Desdemona. In 1894 she was engaged at the Deutsche Theater in Berlin. Engagements at the Residenztheater in Berlin (in 1898) and the Secessionsbühne (in 1900) followed.

In 1899 she married the actor Eduard von Winterstein. For a long time she worked for the Schiller-Theater in Berlin. In 1920 she turned her attention to movies and she mostly played mothers and noble ladies. In "Anna Boleyn" (1920) she played the first wife of Henry VIII. She died in 1965 aged 98 and she was buried with Winterstein at the Städtischer Zentralfriedhof Friedrichsfelde in Berlin.
