This week I would like to feature a long time favorite actor of mine, German actor Daniel Bruhl. Born in Barcelona to Spanish and German parents, Bruhl has been acting for 15 years; he’s been nominated for and received over 12 film acting awards.
You may have seen him in the German films “Goodbye Lenin!”, “Love in Thoughts“, and “The Edukators“. He also was featured (and spoke 3 languages fluently) in France’s Joyeux Noel in 2005. My favorite film of Bruhl’s is the American-French comedy “2 Days in Paris” where he makes a hilarious cameo.
Most recently Daniel appeared as the Nazi war hero in “Inglourious Basterds”, where he won a SAG award for film acting.
I chose this young actor for his versatility and compassion he brings to each role. He has eyes that connect with each character and make them incredibly touching and real. He is a rare actor who is versatile in many different genres and languages, and I think this year is his. We have just begun to see what a great and underrated talent Daniel Bruhl is. Cannot wait for what comes next.
Look out for him in the upcoming “In Transit”, filming now.
