Vicky Krieps (born 4 October 1983) is a Luxembourger actress. She has starred in a number of Luxembourg, French and German productions. She played a leading role in the Academy Award-winning film Phantom Thread.
Krieps lives in Berlin. She is in a relationship with German actor Jonas Laux. They have a daughter, Elisa.
Krieps was born in Luxembourg City, the daughter of a Luxembourger father, who managed a film distribution company, and of a German mother. She is the granddaughter of Luxembourg politician and war-time member of the Luxembourg Resistance, Robert Krieps. Krieps had her first acting experiences at the Lycée de Garçons secondary school in Luxembourg, also receiving training at the Conservatoire of Luxembourg City. In 2004, she was far from convinced that an acting career would be her future. Rather than enrolling in one of the drama schools, she participated in a social project at the primary school of a South African township near Knysna. This confirmed her resolve to study acting, with the goal of performing on theatre stages. She enrolled in the Zurich University of the Arts (Zürcher Hochschule der Künste) while gathering acting experience at the Zurich playhouse (Schauspielhaus Zürich).
