About Jakob Graf

Jakob Graf was born in Würzburg but was raised bilingual with English and German and later French while growing up in Tanzania, France and Geneva. Jakob developed an early passion for acting and writing and frequently performed his own stories on small stages and theatres. His skills as a Kung-Fu-master, acrobat and parkour-runner got him various roles at the Munich National-theatre. But Jakob also wanted to follow his passion for film. While studying (M.A in Cultural-Anthropology and Mandarin) he worked as an actor in German TV-series and independent films. He then went on to study acting at the Munich Film-Academy, took various workshop including Meisner-technique and method acting and continues to work in feature films, short films, TV-series and commercials.
