About Ercan Oezcelik

Ercan Oezcelik, theater and film actor, over 30 years of experience. After he has studied acting in Germany, he began the engagements for many years at the theater of state (Bremer Schauspielhaus, Schillertheater Berlin, Nationaltheater Mannheim, etc.). He completed his acting studies by learning the acting techniques of Lee Strasberg (Method Acting) and Dominique De Fazio (Poetic Theater). Numerous leading and various supporting roles in film / television are part of his repertoire, such as the chief inspector Bülent Isi in the famous crime series TATORT 2001-02 for the broadcaster ARD/SWR, or the leading role of Dr. Behroz in the RTL series OP RUFT DR. BRUCKNER, which he presented to an audience of millions in 46 episodes. This series was based on the US hit series "Emergency Room" and was a sensation in German television history, as it was shot on 35 mm film and thus in cinema format. As a result, his fan base moved with him from one engagement to the next.
In the international movie THE DISAPPEARANCE he played the main role Osman Celik, in FAY GRIM he played the role of Detective Metin alongside Jeff Goldblum. Many of his engagements are among the winners of well-known national and international awards, for example: Adolf Grimme Prize, German Television Prize, Jury Prize and 3rd sat Audience Prize 2006, Main Prize of the German Academy of Performing Arts / TV Film Festival Baden-Baden, RiverRun International Film Festival USA for the best Feature Film, Audience Prize International Film Festival Torino Italien, 1. Prize Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union Best Childrens Series in Thailand.
