Sebastian Achilles studied at the University of the Arts in Berlin. His first engagements took him to the Maxim Gorki Theater Berlin, the Staatstheater Karlsruhe and the Schauspiel Zittau.  He played the title characters in “DON KARLOS” and “ROMEO & JULIA”, among others. He then became a permanent ensemble member at the GRIPS Theatre in Berlin for several years. There he performed for 6 years in the world-famous world premiere production of “LINIE 1” as Bambi. The production “ABOUT BOYS” with him in the leading role won the theatre Oscar “DER FAUST.” in 2013.

For several years Sebastian has shifted his focus to film, television and advertising. For example, he can be seen in the NETFLIX – series “DOGS OF BERLIN” in the continuous role ‘GUIDO MACK’ alongside Fahri Yardim and is part of the ensemble of the SKY Science Fiction series “ACHT TAGE” which starts in spring 2019. Sebastian also made a few forays into ZDF – Herzkino. In January 2019 he was seen as the lead in “BERGDOKTOR” with Hans Sigl and in early September 2019 as the male lead in “INGA LINDSTRÖM” alongside Stephanie Stumph.  In October 2019, he will take over the continuous leading role ‘MARTIN KALKBRENNER’ in the ARD family series “TIERE BIS UNTERS DACH” starting with the 8th season.

However, he is also interested in independent films. Most recently he appeared in the multi-award-winning social drama “DER LETZTE MIETER”. On stage, he can also be seen time and again in major musical productions. He played one of the three male leads in the Udo Lindenberg musical “HINTERM HORIZONT” in Berlin am Potsdamer Platz from 2012 – 2016 and won the B.Z.-Kulturpreis for outstanding artistic achievement with the ensemble in 2015.

Between 2011 and 2014, Sebastian was on stage for three productions at the Nibelungen Festival Worms, directed by TV director Dieter Wedel. From 2016, he embodied the friend and long-time manager Horst Borg of the legendary singer “FALCO” in the musical of the same name, playing to sold-out arenas such as the LANXESS – Arena Cologne and the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund. His last major international tour in 2018/19 with “WALKING WITH DINOSAURS – The Arena Spectacular” as the lead role ‘HUXLEY’ for the British BBC, took him to the Accor Hotels Arena Paris, Mercedes Benz Arena Berlin or the Olympiahalle Munich, among others.
