“Every project, whether cinema, television, theatre or commercial, is a new challenge requiring full dedication and an individual approach. Through my close collaboration with the director and the producer I am able to assemble a unique cast ranging from film and theatre actors to new discoveries. My research covers not only German-speaking countries, but also many actors throughout Europe as a whole. Here, I pay particular attention to creating a strong and dynamic ensemble.”
