Biography

Bastian Trost was born March 29, 1974, in Düsseldorf, and attended Westfälische Schauspielschule in Bochum. He already performed in productions of "Medea" and "King Lear" at Düsseldorf’s Schauspielhaus at the age of 16. Trost subsequently performed in the 1991 production of "Romeo and Juliet" at Cologne’s Kolb-Halle, in the 1998 production of "Der gute Dieb" at Deutsches Theater Baracke, and in the 2001 production of "The Beach" at Volksbühne Berlin.

Since 2002, Trost is a member of the artist group "Gob Squad" founded in 1994 that resides in Nottingham and in Berlin and focuses on the fusion of theatre performances, new media, and technology including video performances, installations, film, and live events. Within the scope of the group’s work, Trost returned to Volksbühne Berlin to perform in the 2007 productions of "Gob Squad’s Kitchen (You’ve Never Had It So Good)" and of "Me the Monster".

Trost also appeared on TV, for instance, in Jo Baier’s films "Der Laden" ("The Store", 1997) and as lieutenant Haeften in "Die Stunde der Offiziere", a docu-drama about the failed assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler on July 20, 1944. Furthermore, he starred in the "Tatort" episodes "Blaues Blut" (1999) and "Der dunkle Fleck" (2002), in "Commissario Brunetti – Venezianische Scharade", and in the "Bella Block" episode "Blackout" (2006).

Trost made his debut on the movie screen in 1994 in the historical drama "Maries Lied" ("Marie’s Song"). He subsequently starred in minor and medium-scaled roles in several films, including Max Färberböck’s film "Aimee & Jaguar" (1998), Fatih Akin’s film "Solino" (2002), Christopher Roth’s film "Baader" (2002), and Rudolf Thome’s film "Frau fährt, Mann schläft" ("Woman Driving, Man Sleeping", 2004). Trost played his first leading role on the movie screen in Benjamin Heisenberg’s film "Schläfer" ("Sleeper") as Johannes who is torn between the loyalty to his friend and colleague, a suspected terrorist, and his career as a virologist that he might give a boost by betraying his friendship. In the Academy Award-winning film "Das Leben der Anderen" ("The Life of Others", 2006), Trost was seen in a small role as a Stasi prisoner.

Furthermore, Trost also lends his voice to audio books, for instance for the WDR production "Das Bildnis des Dorian Gray" ("The Picture of Dorian Gray") or the MDR production "Wilhelm Meister".
