Inspired by the greats, Hollywood welcomes actress Franziska Huber

Receiving acting and drama classes doesn’t guarantee anyone a successful acting career. There has to be way more that can be brought to the table. Training and gaining experience is only a percentage of what you need to become or be labeled as a great actor. It takes hard work, drive, determination, and most of all a natural talent from within. No matter how many acting classes anyone takes, talent can’t be taught.
dc4e5758f4d741deb24eb1a172caefd1Franziska Huber is an actor with an extreme amount of talent. She was born and raised in the South of Germany and has been acting since she was 5 years old. Her first time on stage was when she starred in her church’s nativity play during Christmas time. Franziska played the role of a young child that led Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem. Since that time, she became obsessed with acting. She took drama classes through her high school and college years and even performed at shows at least once a year. Franziska took steps towards pursuing her acting career and went on to performing abroad in plays, musicals, and films. She also worked with private coaches in Germany and the UK. Franziska then took the amazing opportunity of going to the U.S. and became a part of the two year program for international students at the The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York City. This was a huge accomplishment for her. Franziska also received training and coaching from the wonderful Susan Batson at the Susan Batson Studio for two years. Franziska had the chance to be more challenged with her acting, which made her grow as an artist and a person and made her even stronger in her craft. Susan Batson is well known for being an excellent acting coach and famous for working with Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, and Liv Tyler. Franziska starred in productions like George F. Walker’s “Gossip”, Peter Shaffer’s “Equus” and William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. She also managed to write and self-produce a very successful one woman show called “The Royal Weight Watcher! Sarah Ferguson: A Duchess Hungry for Love!” It generated a lot of buzz and was directed by Susan Batson. Franziska’s one woman show was part of the Midtown International Theatre Festival in 2011 and was nominated for the “Best Production of a Solo Show” Award. Franziska also starred in many TV and film roles. In the US she was seen in the TV series “Manny in Real Life”, directed by Salvador Paniagua and the independent feature film “Turning Point” directed by Niyi Towolawi. She appeared as well in the short film “One Trick Dieter” directed by Zachary Kerschberg which was invited to screen at various film festivals and critically acclaimed. In Europe her latest feature film was “The Devil’s Violinist” directed by Bernard Rose starring world famous violinist David Garret and German star Veronica Ferres.
Franziska was also a lead actor in the TV movie called “Venice Beach”, which was filmed in Santa Monica, which later became a series broadcast by Europe’s largest entertainment network RTL. Franziska had the pleasure of working with celebrity Brian McCoughlin, who starred regularly in “Days of our Lives”. Franziska also starred in a music video of the song entitled “Soeul”, by French star Johnny Hallyday and even received a call back audition in Atlanta, Georgia for the movie “Magic Mike XXL” starring Channing Tatum. Franziska had recently auditioned for a role in a movie starring Vince Vaughn and is going to be a part of an up and coming feature film project called “Awaken”. It’s a film based on the well known Deepak Chopra-narrated short film called “Duality”. “Duality” was selected by various film festivals including the HollyShorts Film Festival in Hollywood. To add to the excitement of this film, one of the lead actor’s Jon Foo in “Duality” just got cast for another big project. He will be the lead in the CBS pilot “Rush Hour” (a spin off of the movie which enabled Jackie Chan his US career). Franziska is truly a wonderful actress and gets her inspiration from women like Kathy Bates, Margo Martindale and Melissa McCarthy. She admires them simply because they made it although they aren’t the typical young Hollywood cheerleader type. Franziska can very much relate to them and is very proud that she isn’t typical or the standard of what Hollywood expects. She’s her own person, with experience like no other and the ability to do great things with her talent.
