Biography

André Hennicke, born September 21, 1958, in Johanngeorgenstadt in the Ore Mountains, attended drama school at Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen "Konrad Wolf" in Potsdam. After several years at Theater Senftenberg, he focused on his movie career from the mid-1980s on and, for instance, appeared alongside Corinna Harfouch in "Die Schauspielerin" ("The Actress), directed by Siegfried Kühn. After the German reunification, Hennicke also turned to TV productions. He appeared in several "Tatort" episodes and wrote screenplays for the TV series "Polizeiruf 110" and for "Der Besucher" ("The Visitor"), an ambitious parable on fascism directed by Dror Zahavi that also saw Hennicke in the leading role. Together with Til Schweiger and Tom Zickler, Hennicke set up the film production company "Mr. Brown Entertainment" and celebrated a huge box office hit with the production of "Knockin" on Heaven's Door".

After several movie roles in films such as Rainer Kaufmann's "Kalt ist der Abendhauch" ("Cold Is The Evening Breeze", 2000) and Hardy Martins' "So weit die Füße tragen" ("As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me", 2001), Hennicke in recent years received a lot of attention for his striking roles in Christian Petzold's "Toter Mann" ("Something to Remind Me", 2001, winner of a German TV award), and in Oskar Roehler's "Der alte Affe Angst" ("Angst", 2003). A large number of movie goers saw Hennicke in 2004 as SS general in Oliver Hirschbiegel's "Der Untergang" ("Downfall"). Hennicke followed up the icy portray of the Nazi judge Roland Freisler in "Sophie Scholl" ("Sophie Scholl – The Final Days", 2005), directed by Marc Rothemund, with his performance as serial kiler Gabriel Engel in Christian Alvart's thriller "Antikörper" ("Antibodies", 2005). Furthermore, Hennicke directed the short film "Gordian" (2001) and the feature-length movie "C.I. Angel" (2003).

After playing supporting roles in "Der freie Wille" ("The Free Will") and "Winterreise" ("Winter Journey", both 2006), among others, Hennicke starred in "Youth without Youth" (2007), directed by star director Francis Ford Coppola. In 2008 and 2009, Hennicke will be seen on the movie screen in Heinrich Breloer's Thomas Mann adaptation "Buddenbrooks" ("Buddenbrooks – The Decline of a Family") and in Christian Petzold's "Jerichow".

During the following years, Hennicke continued to appear in memorable supporting and starring roles. He played the abrasive and competitive brother of Milan Peschel's character in Sebastian Schipper's "Mitte Ende August" ("Sometime in August", 2007 – 2009), a medieval nobleman in July Delpy's "Die Gräfin" ("The Countess", 2008/2009) and an unemployed, suicidal family man in Andreas Arnstedt's drama "Die Entbehrlichen" ("The Dispensables", 2009).

In 2010, Rainer Matsutani did cast him in the leading role of the police inspector for his horror thriller "205 – Zimmer der Angst" ("Room 205"). Opposite international stars Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender, Hennicke played Swiss psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler in David Cronenberg's 2011 drama "A Dangerous Method" ("Eine dunkle Begierde").

"Die Vermissten" ("Reported Missing"), which premiered at the 2012 Berlin IFF, stars André Hennicke as a father looking for his missing son, who apparently left out of his own free will.

The same year, he had a supporting role in the TV miniseries "Die Tore der Welt" ("World Without End", CN/GB/DE) and played an uncompromising secret service agent in the two-part TV thriller "Deckname Luna". The 2013 Munich Film Festival saw the premiere of the crime drama "Harms", in which Hennicke stars opposite Heiner Lauterbach und Friedrich von Thun. He then played lawyer Josef Augstein, older brother of "Spiegel" founder Rudolf Augstein, in the award-winning TV drama "Die Spiegel-Affäre" (2014). He returned to the big screen with a memorable turn as a German political activist in the Cannes IFF winner "Land der Wunder" ("The Wonders", IT/DE/CH 2014). In 2015, Hennicke appeared as a ruthless gangster in the acclaimed festival hit "Victoria" ("My Name Is Victoria") and was one of the leads in the made-for-TV drama "Meine Tochter Anne Frank". The same year, he played a Red Army hero in the international co-production "Buddha's Little Finger".

After his turn in the acclaimed thriller "Die dunkle Seite des Mondes" ("The Dark Side of the Moon", DE/LU 2015), he played the character of Doctor Herdal in "Solness" (2015).

2016 was another busy year for Hennicke: Following memorable roles in the TV drama "Die Opfer - Vergesst mich nicht", the thriller "Ein gefährliches Angebot", he starred in the fairy tale adaptation "Das kalte Herz" ("Heart of Stone") and the coming-of-age drama "Jonathan".

He played a former porn actor who helps a 17-year old girl looking for her unknown mother in the acclaimed coming-of-age comedy "Strawberry Bubblegums" (2016, TV).

After playing a Nazi commander in the Greek WWII drama "The Last Note", Hennicke starred in the science-fiction thriller "S.U.M. 1" and the adventure drama "Der Mann aus dem Eis" ("Iceman").
