THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE
DANIEL BRUHL (Lutz Heck)
Garnering international recognition for his talent and versatility, Daniel Bruhl
continues to deliver striking performances.
Even before audiences worldwide took note of his scene-stealing turn in Quentin
Tarantino's smash Inglourious Basterds, Mr. Bruhl was an established actor in
Europe, and had been in movies since he was a teenager. His breakthrough had
come with the starring role in Wolfgang Becker's multi-award-winning sleeper hit
Good Bye Lenin!, for which he won the European Film Award and the German Film
Award for Best Actor.
Fluent in several languages, Mr. Bruhl then made his first English-language
film, Ladies in Lavender, with Judi Dench and Maggie Smith for director Charles
Dance. His subsequent films included Christian Carion's Joyeux Noel; Hans
Weingartner's The Edukators, for which he was again a European Film Award
nominee; Julie Delpy's 2 Days in Paris, 2 Days in New York, and The Countess;
and Paul Greengrass' The Bourne Ultimatum, which won three Academy Awards.
His portrayal of Formula 1 champion driver Niki Lauda in Ron Howard's Rush
earned Mr. Bruhl Golden Globe, BAFTA, Critics' Choice, and Screen Actors Guild
Award nominations, among other honors.
His recent films also include Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man, alongside
Philip Seymour Hoffman; Simon Curtis' Woman in Gold, with Helen Mirren; John
Wells' Burnt, opposite Bradley Cooper; Me and Kaminski, reteaming him with
director Wolfgang Becker; Bill Condon's The Fifth Estate; Florian Gallenberger's
The Colony; Vincent Perez's Alone in Berlin; Michael Winterbottom's The Face of
an Angel; and, as part of the Marvel Universe, Anthony and Joe Russo's
blockbuster Captain America: Civil War.
Mr. Bruhl will soon be seen in the J.J. Abrams-produced 2017 Cloverfield movie,
alongside Elizabeth Debicki, Chris O'Dowd, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ziyi Zhang, and
David Oyelowo for director Julius Onah; and in the untitled feature thriller
based on the true story of the 1976 Entebbe plane hijacking, in which he stars
with Rosamund Pike for director Jose Padilha, also for Focus Features release.
Mr. Bruhl is currently at work filming The Alienist, starring in the title role
of the television series adaptation of Caleb Carr's celebrated book.
