About me

    Well-organized by the Institute for Acting Mallorca I was able to work intensively with the casting directors IRIS BAUMÜLLER, KATE BONE, NATHALIE CHÉRON and LUCI LENOX.
    As of now, I'm represented by ANNETT SCHLANGE and am looking forward to further exciting collaborations with TV and film productions at home and abroad.

About Niklas Leifert

Hello and thanks for stopping by. I'm Niklas Leifert, born and based in Hamburg/Germany, raised in French-speaking Geneva/Switzerland (5-10) and Washington, D.C. (10-16). After completing my training as an Aviation Manager, I studied acting at the Bern University of the Arts and played mostly in stage productions from 2013 until 2019. I then decided to follow my biggest passion and went all into screen acting. I successfully completed the International Screen Acting Workshop at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg and played the lead role in the feature film TRUE NATURE'S CHILD, as well as the male lead roles in the short films THE AUDITION and MOMMY'S PICKLES. I also played supporting roles in the TV series THE BUREAU, SOKO WISMAR and ROTE ROSEN. I'm now looking forward to further exciting collaborations with TV and film productions at home and abroad. I'm always in the mood to record a self tape, so please do not hesitate to get in touch. Thanks and have a great day!
