Biography

Versatility is a coveted trait in acting, and few performers can claim to be as versatile as multilingual European actor Daniel Brühl. German and Spanish by birth, he speaks those two languages in addition to Catalan, English and French. Brühl also matches that eclecticism in his projects, which range from war films to indie comedies to Hollywood dramas. Starting out on German television productions, he found his breakthrough role in 2003 with the thoughtful feature comedy "Good Bye, Lenin!," leading to his sole focus on film parts. He became further known to international audiences when he appeared in the British drama "Ladies in Lavender" (2004), starring Maggie Smith and Judi Dench. In 2007, Brühl appeared in his first American movie, with a small part in the action hit "The Bourne Ultimatum" (2007), and he was later featured more prominently in Quentin Tarantino's revisionist World War II film "Inglourious Basterds" (2009), a project that solidified his presence in international cinema. Continuing to juggle productions in various countries, Brühl generated major buzz for his central role in Ron Howard's racing movie "Rush" (2013), proving that the dynamic actor was still getting warmed up.
