There is a famous phrase: “The less you know of an actor, the easier it is, to accept his performance as true and real.”

I grew up in a small town in West Germany, as the son of an – obviously – very liberal Catholic priest and a very spirited and locally well known singer. I did everything, children and young people do, when they grow up in a rather rural area, far away from the big city .

The desire to be an actor awoke in me quite late. It was towards the end of my first job. As a teenager, during the visit to a filmstudio, I was approached by a producer and invited to casting for a TV Series. Athough I went to the audition, I refused the role once they offered it to me. I just didn’t feel ready at that time. But the Studio seemed convinced, that it probably would be worth to support me in this direction, and kept on asking and inviting me.

Two years later, I was just about to finish school, the phone rang again. Now, that I was at a point, where it was about time to decide on a direction in life, I gave that idea – and most of all myself – a chance! Without knowing, whether I would be up to the challenges, or even ever have the talent to be an actor, I said yes!

I always loved movies and admired the heroes in their stories. And now, there was the possibility for me to become part of this world. I can still remember how it felt. On the outside I played the cool, but inside I almost exploded of nervousness! I felt like a cheater! For a long time I used to say, that my greatest performance has been, to make people believe, that I am a good actor. And maybe it was even true! Because I just did pretend, to know what I was doing! And it worked! Poeple just bought it one hundred percent! And they liked what I was doing! They applauded me, gave me compliments, encouraged and supperted me a lot. There it was! And I wanted to be worth it! I wanted to be worth of all these beautiful things happening to me! I didn’t want to just take the place, that was given to me! I wanted to earn it!

I wanted to learn! I wanted to be good! I wanted to really know how it is done!

I wanted to be, what everyone already thought I was!

Hello,

my name is Vinzenz Kiefer, and I’m an actor!
