Born in Barcelona, Spain, Daniel Brühl’s full name is Daniel César Martín Brühl González Domingo. A Spanish-German actor, whose father was a German TV director, started at young age with moderate success in television and film. Beginning in the German soap opera, “Forbidden Love,” he built a rather large resume of foreign films. Brühl transitioned that to some critical success in the 2003 film GOOD BYE LENIN! where he was deemed best actor with a European Film Award and German Film Award. Brühl’s talent is aided by his education and ability to fluently speak German, Portuguese, Spanish, English, French and Catalan. His breakout Hollywood role came in 2009 with Quentin Tarantino’s INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. Tarantino is known for finding obscure talent and Daniel Brühl is another addition to that list. Playing a German sniper hailed as a hero for the Nazi army, Brühl shows a nice range of emotion. He has continued that success by receiving main roles in Ron Howard’s RUSH opposite Chris Hemsworth and Olivia Wilde, in which he received a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actor. He also starred in Bill Condon’s THE FIFTH ESTATE opposite Benedict Cumberbatch. Daniel Brühl will next join the large Marvel universe as supervillain Baron Zemo in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR.
