About Sebastian Achilles

From 2001 until 2005, I studied acting at the University of Arts Berlin, Germany.

My first engagements took me to the Maxim Gorki Theater Berlin, to the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe and to Schauspiel Zittau. Here, I played the title characters in Schiller's "Don Carlos" and Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" .

After that, I became a member of the ensemble at the GRIPS Theater, Berlin. I played 'Bambi' in the world-famous production of "Line 1". The staging of the play "Über Jungs" ('About Guys'), in which I played the leading role 'Victor Cluscrescu', won the Theatre - Oscar "DER FAUST " in 2013.

Between summer of 2011 and 2014, I performed several times at the Nibelungen Festival, Worms, directed by well-known TV-director Dieter Wedel.

Until August 2016 I have played the rock rebel Elmar, one of the three male lead role, as part of the First Cast in Udo Lindenberg’s musical „Hinterm Horizont“, directed by Ulrich Waller at Theatre am Potsdamer Platz, Berlin. The ensemble and myself won the B.Z. Art Award for outstanding acting performance in 2015.

At the moment, I am mainly and consistently working for film, television and commercial productions.
I appeared as a continous role in "ACHT TAGE" ("Eight Days"), a new Science Fiction series made by pay-tv channel SKY, directed by Oscar winner Stefan Ruzowitzky in 2017.

I have been performing also as as a continous role in a new NETFLIX series "DOGS OF BERLIN" since october 2017.
Both series will be provided in autumn 2018.

I am looking forward working with you
