Volker Bruch Biography
During his time at gymnasium, Bruch discovered his passion for acting and became involved with student acting groups. After completing his university-entrance diploma, he pursued his studies in performing arts at the prestigious Max Reinhardt Seminar in Vienna, Austria. It was during this period that Bruch made a conscious decision to focus on acting for television and film, rather than theater.
He began making his mark in the industry with his first television appearances and eventually graduated in 2005. In the early stages of his career, Bruch predominantly took on minor roles in German television and TV movie productions. However, his breakthrough came in 2005 when he portrayed Axi in the German television movie Rose, earning him a German Television Award for Best Supporting Actor.
The year 2008 proved to be a significant turning point for Bruch as he starred in several notable films, including the French movie Female Agents, the English-language German biopic The Red Baron as Oberleutnant Lothar Freiherr von Richthofen, the Oscar-nominated German film The Baader Meinhof Complex as Stefan Aust, and the Oscar-winning American film The Reader.
Following this successful period, Bruch continued to take on smaller supporting roles until he landed his breakout role in the popular 2013 German miniseries Generation War, where he portrayed one of the five main characters. His performance garnered critical acclaim, earning him a nomination for a German Television Award and a special award for Ensemble Cast at the 2013 Bavarian TV Awards.
Looking ahead, Bruch has been cast as German rally driver Walter Röhrl in the upcoming English-language film Race for Glory: Audi vs. Lancia, previously known as 2 Win. Set in the backdrop of the 1983 World Rally Championship, the film, starring Daniel Brühl and Riccardo Scamarcio, is scheduled for release in January 2024.
