Who is Ruby O. Fee?
Ruby O. Fee is a Costa Rican actress and producer with German heritage, born on 7th February 1996, in San José, Puerto Rico. After her parents divorced, Ruby lived in Brazil with her German mother and French stepfather, before relocating to Germany in 2008 and pursuing an acting career almost immediately. Measuring 5ft 6in (160cm) tall, and weighing 120lbs (55kg) with vital statistics of 35-25-35, the brunette bombshell has won over hundreds of thousands of fans due to her acting skills and bubbly personality.
Ruby’s First Roles
Ruby made her acting debut at fourteen years of age in 2010, in the sci-fi drama “Womb”. Starring Eva Green and Matt Smith, the movie’s plotline is based around a woman who decides to give birth to a clone of her dead partner, and the controversial consequences of her decision. Despite not being a box office hit, “Womb” won a Junior Jury award at the Locarno International Film Festival, and was also nominated in the Golden Leopard category at the same event.
In the following year, a young Ruby had one of the starring roles as Laila in “Löwenzahn – Das Kinoabenteuer”, a family-friendly adventure movie written by André Georgi and Henriette Piper.
Ruby’s co-stars included Dominique Horwitz and Guido Hammesfahr, and the German production was fairly well-received by critics.
Ruby’s first regular role came in 2010 and ended in 2012, in the award-winning German series “Allein gegen die Zeit” – English title “13 Hours: A Race Against Time” – which ran for two seasons with each episode being 25 minutes long. The first season of the family adventure series was based on young children fighting against terrorists who infiltrate a school looking for advanced scientific technology; in season two, the same group of children and some new faces strike against the bad guys who are developing a bioweapon.
Ruby became more active in the acting industry in 2013 and 2014, with roles in four movies and bit parts in two series. The young actress took this time to amplify her portfolio, and branch out into diverse genres such as fantasy, thriller and crime.
Ruby’s Notable Roles
Ruby played Sternchen in “Als wir träumten” – English title “As we were dreaming” – a 2015 movie about three teenage boys who start their own techno music club, working with talented young actors Merlin Rose and Joel Basman among others. The film did well in its home country, being nominated for a Golden Bear award at the Berlin International Film Festival. One Spanish movie critic praised the film, saying: “It’s as if Shane Meadows took the essence of ‘Trainspotting’, and with it, made a movie about German youngsters in the suburbs”.
In 2017 Ruby starred in “The Invisibles”, a gritty wartime movie about four young Jewish people who were part of the small community that survived in Berlin until the end of WWII. Written and directed by Claus Rafle, the film won the Best Narrative Feature award at the 2018 Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival.
Ruby’s last notable role was in the 2019 movie “Polar”, an action drama film released via Netflix, about a retiring assassin who discovers his employer has put a hit out on him. The movie was based on Víctor Santos’s graphic novel of the same name and starred big names in the entertainment industry such as Vanessa Hudgens and Matt Lucas. Playing the role of Sindy, Ruby was one of the lead characters, and this performance is deemed one of her best to this day.
As for future projects, Ruby will soon be starring in Matthias Schweighöfer’s “Army of Thieves”, the prequel to the zombie movie “Army of the Dead”, and set to be released on Netflix on 29 October 2021, despite the poor performance of its predecessor which earned just $780,000 with a colossal $80 million budget.

Not everything is glitz and glamour, however: the actress also uses her influence to shine a light on causes close to her heart, such as “Fridays For Future”, a global climate group which promotes itself as a ‘youth-led grassroots movement’, and educates anyone interested on important topics including the links between climate justice and small farmers.
