What a man

  • Matthias Schweighöfer was born on March 11 1981 in Anklam. He is a German actor, voice actor, producer, director and singer. Thanks to his two actor parents, Michael and Gitta Schweighöfer, he gained stage experiences even in his young years. Matthias Schweighöfer had his first performances at the theater in his youth. After aborting his studies at the University of Acting ‘Ernst Busch’ in Berlin after one year, Matthias Schweighöfer first gained some minor roles in TV productions. At the age of 16, he was in front of the camera for the film project ‘Raus aus der Haut’ for the first time, in 1997. Since then he has regularly appeared in national and international film and TV productions. He is one of the founders of the film production company Pantaleon Films, which is managed by him.
