Bio & CV

Andreas Tobias was born in Garmisch-Partenkirchen on December 6, 1984.

His acting debut took place on the stage of the “Kurtheater Garmisch-Partenkirchen” when he was 11 years old. He founded his own theater company while he was still a pupil at school and directed plays by Ionesco, among others.

Andreas Tobias has been in front of the camera on a regular basis since 2001. Primary small parts for “Bayerisches Fernsehen” iniated his desire to learn the art of acting from scratch. While still attending school he found an acting instructor, completed 2 years of education in acting and was promptly casted for the ARD mini series “Der Wunschbaum”.

He moved to Hamburg for a leading role in the ZDF series “Die Albertis” and also passed his final exams at a German Gymnasium there in 2005. In the same year he played the part of “Melchior” in Wedekind’s “Spring Awakening” at the “Deutsches Schauspielhaus Hamburg”, where several other plays followed. During the theater season in 2006 Christian Stückl employed him at the “Münchner Volkstheater” where he could be seen performing the most diverse roles as a permanent member of that ensemble till 2009. In spite of his steady engagement at the theater Andreas Tobias was able to continue his work in front of the camera. He has acted in leading roles and in supporting parts in series as well as in documentaries and movies, e.g. the “Baader Meinhof Complex” or the alpine drama “Nanga Parbat”.

In 2010, after almost 10 years of acting, Andreas Tobias decided to take time off to move to Brussels and dedicate himself to the concentrated study of French at the university. Whilst his studies he nevertheless found time to appear in guest roles at the Munich Volkstheater on a regular basis. It was in 2011 during the theater production of “An Enemy of the people” that he returned to acting on a full time basis.

The art of lighting and lighting object, as well as photography continuously grew more in importance, next to acting. Andreas Tobias first exhibition titled “Vorsicht Zerbrechlich” took place in Munich in 2011, displaying an array of light objects. His first solo exhibition of Photography will take place towards to end of May 2013 in Berlin.

Andreas Tobias lives in Berlin.
