Name of woman in "Big in Japan" videoclip

Dear all,

I am new to this forum and a truly big fan of Alphaville's "Big in Japan" :
I can listen to this track song 's haunting spellbinding melody endlessly! One of my all-time favorites...

I wondered if someone knows the name of the beautiful dark-haired blue-eyed young woman appearing in the original 1984 "Big in Japan" videoclip...

Her face looks rather familiar, yet her name just wouldn't come to mind.
Was she by any chance a model or an actress?

Besides, does anyone have information about what has become of her over the past 32 years (=2016-1984)?

Thanks in advance

Roumors said that the Big In Japan video was directed by Dieter Meier from Yello, and the girl was or is his wife... did not know her name though.

She reminds me of Lara Pulver, but she was much younger at the time.

Hello Willy,

Thanks for getting in touch. Dieter Meier did direct the video in Berlin. The young actress (Tanja) however is not his wife.
