She made her screen acting debut in the 1936 Austrian feature Die Leuchter des Kaisers.
Up until the 1950s, she worked primarily in film. In the later decades of her career, however, she could be seen primarily in television guest star roles.
A native of Aussig, Austro-Hungarian Empire, Tilden (born Marianne Tuch) grew up with a brother, Walter Tuch, who had a successful career as a cinematographer. She was married (at different times) to both musical composer Alexander Steinbrecher and Austrian screen actor Erik Frey.
