Born and raised in the town of Ambri in Switzerland, Carla Juri didn't discover acting until her 20s. Starting in 2005, Juri began to study acting over the course of five years across two continents. She spent time in Los Angeles and London, working on short films and more along the way. Her first credited role was in the short "Midday Room" (2006), but what started to earn her acclaim was her part in "180°" (2010), which garnered Swiss award buzz. Over the next few years, Juri appeared in a variety of Swiss and later German films. Her true breakout role was the leading role of Helen in the German drama "Wetlands" (2013), which was based on a best-selling novel. After the success of "Wetlands," Juri began to make an attempt to transition to American cinema. She appeared in the Craig Robinson-starring comedy "Morris from America" (2016) and the Dakota Fanning and Guy Pearce-starring western "Brimstone" (2017). Neither of those films had an impact in America, with both being international projects despite the actors involved. Juri finally reached a bigger American market with her role as Dr. Ana Stelline in "Blade Runner 2049" (2017).
