About Eszter Tompa

Born in a family of actors and directors,my contact with theatre begun early. For my family it was tabu that I would become an actress. After having wasted a half of year at a philology university, director Szabolcs Hajdu called me to rehearse with him in Debrecen, Hungary, when I was 18.
I got my first role in the movie of Gyula Nemes, called My One And Onlies.
At the advice of a german stage designer, I went to Burghausen, Germany to attend the admission exams for the school of the famous Romanian director expelled by Ceausescu, David Esrig.
Since, I have worked and lived different countries, in 7 languages.
I have co-founded a theatre group in Munich in 2010, Institut für Glücksfindung.
