Albrecht Schuch, born in Jena, Germany, attended the University of Music and Theatre 'Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy' from 2006 to 2010. From this point on, his career took off as he was quickly cast in the lead role as Alexander von Humboldt in the film adaptation of the bestseller, MEASURING THE WORLD. Soon after, he landed an enviable role in the first part of the NSU trilogy, DIE TÄTER - HEUTE IST NICHT ALLE TAGE, for which he received the prestigious Grimme Award. He was soon cast as the lead in the adapted mini-series, GLADBECK by Kilian Riedhoff, for which he received the German Television Award as Best Actor. In 2018, Albrecht could be seen in Christian Schwochow's highly acclaimed mini-series, BAD BANKS, with his performance garnering the Best Supporting Actor award handed out by the German Academy of Television. His next lead role - in the film adaptation of KRUSO - won him both the German Television Award as Best Actor and the Golden Camera as Best German Actor. His standout leading performance in Nora Fingscheidt's SYSTEM CRASHER (Berlinale Silver Bear 2019) and in a supporting role in Burhan Qurbani's BERLIN ALEXANDERPLATZ won him German Film Awards in the two main acting categories in the same year - a first time feat for a German actor. His upcoming projects include FABIAN directed by Dominik Graf, LIEBER THOMAS (AT) by Andreas Kleinert and SCHACHNOVELLE by Philipp Stölz. He is currently in production on the SKY TV series, PARADISO, by David Dietl and Barbara Albert.
