Who plays Vera in Babylon Berlin?
The third season of Babylon Berlin has finally returned to screens as Gereon Rath (Volker Bruch) and Charlotte Ritter (Liv Lisa Fries) deal with a new case.
With the new outing, also came the introduction of a number of major new characters to the series.
Viewers meet two of the biggest new faces in the opening episode when the Armenian (Misel Maticevic) is reunited with Walter Weintraub (Ronald Zehrfeld).
And almost as soon as fans met him, they were also introduced to the enigmatic Vera who was whisked away by Weintraub for a tryst in his car.
As the series continues, it seems Vera is set to play an even bigger role in the action.

Vera is played by German actor and model Caro Cult, who is known for her appearances in films like High Society.
Express.co.uk recently spoke exclusively to the actor about what it was like to appear in the show and how she landed the role.
Speaking about Vera, Cult said: “I love playing this character because she’s such a strong woman, even for the time.
“She knows what she wants and she’s not afraid to ask or fight for it.
“In the 1920s, there was a lot more acceptance, with regard to the diversity of people and with sexuality.”
However, Cult also revealed how she almost did not get the role after the character she was casted for was dropped.
When she was first called in to audition, it was for a smaller role which required her to learn to dance.
Although, shortly after she found out she had landed it, her agent called and said the creators had decided to remove the character altogether.
Luckily, she was called back in to read for an even bigger role in the series, auditioning with Liv Lisa Fries who plays Lotte.

She explained: “They just wanted to see how we get along because we had so many scenes together.
“I really enjoyed playing with her and there was also a good exchange of energy.
“It was really in balance with her and I really enjoyed that. It was supportive because acting is such a team thing.”
As the series progresses, the characters are expected to get closer together as the show explores the world of the Weimar Republic.
And as fans of the series will know, the show has been hugely successful across the world, airing on Netflix and Sky outside of Germany.

This was particularly exciting for the Cult, who explained: “I mean, no one expected that.
“But it’s great and also important for the German film industry what’s happening with Babylon Berlin.
“But also with the directors we have and the people, it’s just the best of the best in Germany.”
Following her role on Babylon Berlin, Cult will also be starring in another major German series called Biohackers.
