Biography

Samuel Finzi, born 1966 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, attended actor’s training at the national theatre and film academy in Sofia and has appeared as a film and theatre actor in Germany since the beginning of the 1990s. In Bulgaria, Finzi, who is living in Berlin now, was most often seen as a leading actor in movies. Although most of these movies have been successful at international festivals, they are hardly known in Germany, where Finzi was first mainly seen, either on TV or on the movie screen, in smaller parts in films such as Jan Schütte's "Abschied – Brechts letzter Sommer" ("The Farewell") or Oliver Hirschbiegel's "Ein ganz gewöhnlicher Jude" ("Just an Ordinary Jew"). But German theatre goers had already witnessed Finzi's versatility as an actor. Since 1994, Finzi has performed in leading roles at Schauspielhaus Düsseldorf, Thalia Theater Hamburg, Volksbühne Berlin, or Deutsches Theater Berlin, to name but a few.

In 2007, Fintzi finally played his first leading role in a German movie, in Marc Meyer's tragicomedy "Wir sagen Du! Schatz" ("Family Rules").

The following year saw him playing supporting roles in Lola Randl's "Die Besucherin" ("Days In Between", 2008) and the tragicomedy "Helden aus der Nachbarschaft" ("Heroes From the Neighbourhood"). His next screen credits included Michael Glawogger's "Das Vaterspiel" ("Kill Daddy Good Night", 2009), the comedy "Die Liebe und Viktor" and the acclaimed TV production "Aghet – Ein Völkermord (2010).

In 2011 Finzi had memorable roles in the box-office hits "Kokowääh" (he also returned for the 2013 sequel) and "Männerherzen … und die ganz ganz große Liebe" ("Men in the City 2"). From 2009 until 2012, he also starred as police psychologist Flemming in the eponymous TV series.

After receiving favorable reviews for his portrayal of a Soviet Army lieutenant in the biopic "George" (2013), Finzi appeared in Lola Randl's tragicomedy "Die Erfindung der Liebe" ("The Invention of Love", 2013) and had a supporting role in the Bulgarian TV series "The Fourth Estate" (2013).

In 2014, Finzi starred in the low-budget comedy "Worst Case Scenario" and had supporting roles in "Fünf Freunde 4" and Oskar Roehler's "Tod den Hippies!! Es lebe der Punk" ("Punk Berlin 1982").
