It’s been about 20 years now during which Gilbert von Sohlern has been working as a first-class actor on stage as well as for small and big screen productions helmed only by the finest of directors whose hearts Gilbert von Sohlern convincingly won over right at the start of his career when he played in FLORIAN (dir.: Bernd Fischerauer).  His leading role in the TV film KEIN PLATZ FÜR IDIOTEN (dir: Gedeon Kovacs) garnered him a nomination at the Adolf Grimme Prize.  This was followed by collaboration with noted directors Jo Baier and Joseph Vilsmaier.  What better start could one wish for?  By now, Gilbert von Sohlern is indisputably a part of the core group of the most popular figures in hit series that have run for years on German TV:  his interpretation of series regulars like Monsignore Muehlich on PFARRER BRAUN or police officer Robert Dobner on MONACO 110 have undoubtedly added their share for both ensembles to receive their due prestige.  This is owed to the authenticity of his performances, be it as a doctor, a priest, or a police officer.  He convinces through earnest dilligence underlaid by subtle and dry humor which makes the viewer grin.  Having said this, he can even make us guffaw whenever he has that Frankonian mischief in his eyes.  Upon learning that he was raised an aristocrat at the Goessweinstein Castle, one does understand why.  We wish for Gilbert von Sohlern to come across those directors who fully appreciate that wonderful and artless prowess of his and accordingly give him the leeway he needs to further evolve.
