Antje Weisgerber's first movie was "Zwei Welten" (1940), directed by Gustaf Gründgens. Gründgens subsequently brought her to the Staatstheater in Berlin. In 1944 she married the actor Horst Casper, who died in 1952.
She followed Gründgens to the Theatre in Düsseldorf and later to the Deutschen Schauspielhaus in Hamburg. One of her most remarkable parts was that of Gretchen in Gründgens' famous version of Goethe's "Faust". From 1952 until 1960 she performed at the Salzburger Festspiele.
In 1990 she enjoyed her last success on the stage as Amanda in "Die Glasmenagerie" by Tennessee Williams. To a younger public she became well known for her part in the German television series "Der Landarzt".
