Daniel Wagner

This is Daniel. Daniel was born in Karaganda, Kazakhstan and his parents brought him to Germany when he was a young boy. At the age of 11, his family settled down in a village in Rhineland-Palate, a place Daniel never really felt like he belonged to. As soon as he graduated from school, he moved to Vienna in order to study theater. “After my studies I started working for the theater of Erlangen as well as the theater of Koblenz for a couple of years,” Daniel says and tells me that he knew he had to move to a bigger city in order to progress in acting. He applied for the master class of Peter Zadeck in Berlin and got in. „Being in a Berlin felt great,“ Daniel remembers. „Berlin is a great city and the only city where actually everybody has already lived: the Democrats, the Prussians, the Communists and the Nazis – a phenomenon which reflects in the city’s architecture as well as in the cityscape.“ Daniel has been living in Berlin ever since but left the city for a couple of productions like The Wiener Festwochen in Vienna for example, a city he never lost his ties to. Recently he has been acting for a couple of movie production but still remains acting in theaters. „While television is my mistress,“ Daniel says, „theater is my wife.“
