Biography

For a long time I tried to fit in…
But that doesn’t work with me – my biography is just to special!

Performances in theatres as a teen – academic studies in chemistry – education in acting – theatre – movies – also active in music – poetry – and much more…

From the classical point of view of the “business” I understand everyone who doesn’t want to book me – I am just so difficult to be put in a box.

★ Am not really a career changer but somehow I am.

★ Did put together my acting education individually by myself and didn’t go the typical way.

★ The first movie with me playing the lead will be soon starting in cinemas. My German showreel (with English subtitles) therefore shows only current scenes from this movie that I find convincing of my work.

★ I am honest, straight, authentic, self-determined and I have a deep respect for all people on set and in the production area because I almost went through every task myself!

★ Most of the German series do not appeal to me, my heart beats for movies with a certain depth!

★ Horror, splatter, blood and thunder – nope, not my district. No problem if there is need for drama but then for a truly world-moving topic, please, and not for the next, random crime thriller.

★ Love to work in English on set – so foreign film offers are very welcome 😉

★ My life decision since 2013: Only projects that I can fully stand behind! That it is not out of arrogance but out of the realization that staying true to yourself is one of the highest priority in life, at least if you want to be happy and give your absolute best!

But this is indeed exactly what one gets if one hires me:
An individual human being with a passion for movies!

I take my job, the project of the director/production firm and the character which I am allowed to play very seriously! One gets 100 % from me when I committed myself to a project!

Because I love to be part of a team, to be able to tell stories that move the viewer deep inside…more often preferring the subtle, silent notes than the big orchestra. Though now and then this is fun, too 😉

For me the story of a movie is crucial and less if my part is super important. The movie must be important!
This I support with my being, my energy, my abilities, my transformation ability, my dedication to acting!

The people with whom I was blessed to work with till now confirm exactly that in their feedbacks about me. I am very grateful for that. Who wants to get less sense of self and more assessments by others will find it here „FEEDBACK“ fündig 😉
