Biography

Florian Stetter, born August 2, 1977, in Munich, attended actor’s training at Munich’s Otto-Falckenberg-Schauspielschule. He already won the award as "Best Young Actor" at the 2001 Film Festival "Max Ophuels Prize" for his first role in a movie in Philip Gröning’s romantic drama "L’amour, l’argent, l’amour" ("Love, Money, Love", 2000). Alongside Sabine Timoteo, he played a young drifter who together with his girlfriend descends into a maelstrom of debasement and emotional prostitution. Two years later, Stetter starred in the ensemble of Dominik Graf’s TV movie "Die Freunde der Freunde" that won a Grimme award. In almost all of his roles, Stetter catches the viewers’ eyes with his strong presence and his expressive and powerful representation – for instance, as resistance fighter Christoph Probst in the film "Sophie Scholl" (2005), as officer Scharffenstein in the artist biopic "Schiller" (2005, TV), or as a sensitive young man who does his alternative service in "Liebes Spiel" ("Love Game", 2005) alongside Maggie Peren.

Besides his movie career, Stetter also performs on stage, for instance, in several productions at Schauspielhaus Zürich, at Munich’s Volkstheater, at Salzburg Festival, and at Schauspiel Hannover. During the theatre season 2006/2007, he was a cast member of Berlin’s Maxim Gorki Theater.

After a striking performance as Thomas Kretschmann’s antagonist in the TV remake of Jack London’s novel "Der Seewolf" ("The Sea Wolf", 2008), Florian Stetter played the role of the famous mountain climber Reinhold Messner in Joseph Vilsmaier’s drama "Nanga Parbat".

From 2009 to 2011 he played the role of police inspector Leander Blohm in the TV crime series "Kommissarin Lucas". Moreover in 2011, he had some guest appearances in the series "Polizeiruf 110" and "SOKO Leipzig" as well as in a starring role as a teacher in the award-winning television drama "Inklusion – Gemeinsam anders" about a physically disabled girl who is integrated into the ninth grade of a regular comprehensive school.

In the highly acclaimed biopic "Die Verführerin Adele Spitzfeder" (TV, 2011) about the actress and scammer A.S. he played a poet (not historically warranted) who is not deceived by the bon vivant. In 2013, he was part of the cast of Vivian Naefe's feature "Der Geschmack von Apfelkernen" ("The Taste of Apple Seeds") where he played a juvenile friend of the female lead. He was cast in a starring role by Dominik Graf for "Die geliebten Schwestern" ("Beloved Sisters") which premiered at the Berlin IFF's competition in 2014. Playing the poet Friedrich Schiller he embarks on a momentous ménage à trois with two penniless aristocratic sisters in 1788. "Kreuzweg" ("Stations of the Cross") by Dietrich Brüggemann, another nominee in the Berlin IFF's competition of 2014 features Stetter in an important supporting role as a priest in a strictly traditional Catholic parish.
