Biography

Ronald Zehrfeld, born 1977 in East Berlin, started to study German studies, literature, linguistics, and political science in Berlin, but then changed to acting and started to attend drama school at Hochschule für Schauspielkunst Ernst Busch in Berlin. He then performed at Berliner Ensemble, at Deutsches Theater Berlin, and at Hamburg's St. Pauli Theater.

In 2005, Zehrfeld made his movie debut in a leading role in Dominik Graf's film "Der Rote Kakadu" ("The Red Cockatoo"). Besides his theatre career, Zehrfeld has since been seen in several TV productions, including the ambitious drama "Die russische Geliebte" alongside Iris Berben. After his leading role on the movie screen in the relationship drama "In jeder Sekunde" ("At Any Second", 2008), Zehrfeld played the leading role in the comedic pirate movie "Zwölf Meter ohne Kopf" ("Pirates of the Baltic Sea"): In the film directed by Sven Taddicken, Zehrfeld portrayed the famous pirate Klaus Störtebeker.

In 2010, he starred as an idealist police detective in Dominik Graf's acclaimed miniseries "Im Angesicht des Verbrechens" ("In Face of the Crime"). He again teamed up with Graf for the "Polizeiruf 110" entry "Cassandras Warnung" (2011) and the thriller "Das unsichtbare Mädchen" (2011). Around that time, Zehrfeld also appeared in supporting roles in "Die Unsichtbare" ("Cracks in the Shell", 2011) and "Die Stunde des Wolfes" (2011). He then starred opposite Nina Hoss in Christian Petzold's unanimously applauded drama "Barbara", which won the Silver Bear for Best Director at the 2012 Berlin IFF.  After a lead role in the feature film "Wir wollten aufs Meer" ("Shores of Hope", 2012) and a memorable turn in the second season of the TV series "Weissensee" (2013), Zehrfeld played a policeman with a fondness for animal costumes in the 2013 release "Finsterworld".

In 2014, Zehrfeld demonstrated his dramatic range in highly different films: He played a slick journalist who charms an amnesic woman in the tragicomedy "Vergiss mein Ich" ("Lose My Self"), a friend of poet Friedrich Schiller in the period drama "Die geliebten Schwestern" ("Beloved Sisters"), a German soldier on duty in Afghanistan in "Zwischen Welten" ("Inbetween Worlds"), and a tenant who becomes involved in a mysterious case in the children's film "Rico, Oskar und die Tieferschatten". Moreover, Zehrfeld excelled in the role of a German who falsely thinks his Jewish wife was murdered by the Nazis in Christian Petzold's post-WWII drama "Phoenix".
