Life

Florens Schmidt began his career at the age of 13 in the children's series Schloss Einstein , in which he played the main role of Oliver Schuster . Then he played in various theater and television productions.

From 2001 to 2006 he was guitarist and singer in the punk rock band Indigo . [1] They released two EPs [2] [3] and played at this time concerts by punk bands like Anti-Flag , Lagwagon , Banda Bassotti , Pennywise , ZSK .

From 2006 to 2010 he studied at the University of Film and Television "Konrad Wolf" in Potsdam. In 2009 he received the ensemble award at the Theatertreffen German-speaking drama schools in Zurich for the production Lügengespinst , in which he played the role of Frankie , together with his fellow actors . In 2010 he played one of the leading roles in the movie Illness of the Young , which premiered at the Hof International Film Festival 2010.

From 2011 until the end of the 2015/2016 season he was a member of the ensemble of the Junge Schauspielhaus Hamburg. [6] In 2011 he played the leading role of Felix Laub in Wut (based on the film of the same name by Max Eipp) and he embodied the social revolutionary Kaljajew in Alexander Riemenschneider's acclaimed production Die Gerechten by Albert Camus. In Konradin Kunze's staging of Burns (by Wajdi Mouawad) he took on the role of the cynical soldier and psychopath Nihad. The SHZ finds praise both for the direction and for the portrayal of the soldier. Kunze "shows people perverted by war and torture like soldiers (great: Florens Schmidt)." [7] He also played in the playAlice in Wonderland (directed by Barbara Bürk and Clemens Sienknecht) , which was awarded the German Theater Prize Der Faust in 2012 in the category of best director for children's and youth theater .

From 2014 to 2019 he played the leading role of Christopher Boone in Supergute Tage or The strange world of Christopher Boone at the Junge Schauspiel Hamburg. Die Welt writes: “Florens Schmidt plays the difficult role of the handicapped teenager with flying colors. It shows the behavioral abnormalities of an Asperger's child, the enormous precision in the observations, but also the physical inaccessibility and the clumsy handling of others. " [8]

In 2017 he had a cameo as a hotel porter as part of the 20th season of Schloss Einstein. In 2018 Schmidt was seen in the ZDF series " Bettys Diagnose " in an episode role as Julian Steiner .

Since July 2018 he has also been engaged as a guest in the successful play Linie 1 at the Grips Theater Berlin, where, among other things, he plays the role of the lovable homeless "Schlucki".

In 2019 he took on the role of Joachim Meyerhoff in Oh, this gap, this horrific gap (by Joachim Meyerhoff) at the Altonaer Theater in Hamburg. [9] The NDR writes: “Florens Schmidt stands on the edge of the stage in a linen shirt, and every word he says is believed. So at the end the evening comes to itself and touches. Life means loss - and every good actor turns it into: art that helps to fill the terrible void. "

Florens Schmidt also works as an audio book speaker. [10] In 2019, Wolfgang Borchert: Complete Stories was published by Buchfunk-Verlag. [11]
