About Erhan Erdogan

Born in 1980 and raised in Düsseldorf, his Parents immigrated from Turkey, Antalya in the 1970s.

His first acting experience, he had in front of the camera of his Father. He mimed his role models Charlie Chaplin, Errol Flynn and also Bruce Lee.

He had several roles in School-Plays - his biggest performance as a Teenager was a Music-Show at the City Hall with his friends where they portrayed the Hip-Hop-Band "Die Fantastischen Vier".

After he finished school, upon request of his parents, he completed a 3-year-education as a Travel Agent. Furthermore he graduated in Media Economics with a best note of 1,0 and worked several years as a Marketing Consultant for Publishers and Digital Marketing Companies.

But his Passion for Acting never let him go, so he quit his Marketing-Job and auditioned for a Drama-School in Cologne. He got the Spot and for his excellent work also for his commitment he was rewarded with a Acting-Scholarship for Los Angeles, CA. There he was coached by Bernard Hiller.

His first small role was in "The Physician" with Sir Ben Kingsley, Stellan Skarsgård, Elyas M'Barek and Olivier Martinez as a Footman of the persian Shah. During the shooting he was also used as the Hand-Double of Elyas M'Barek.

This was followed by several Theatre-Engagements, Commercial-Spots and TV-Appearances like "Professor T" and "Einstein" by Thomas Jahn.

In 2019 he was involved in the Cinema-Remake of "Der letzte Bulle" by Director Peter Thorwarth (Bang Boom Bang) - in the movie he plays a Police Doctor.

"KIDS RUN" directed by Barbara Ott had its Worldpremiere at the 70. BERLINALE in 2020 as the opening Movie of "Perspektive Deutsches Kino".

Also in 2020 he will be in the Drama "Why?" from Director Thorsten Kramer where he plays a troubled Father.

In 2020 he and the Cast of the movie "KIDS RUN" were awarded with the GERMAN ACTING AWARD for "Best Ensemble".

Erhan lives with his longtime Girlfriend and his Daughter in Düsseldorf.
