Leo Reisinger was born in Munich in 1978 and grew up in an area not far from the capital of Bavaria. He took professional piano classes and completed his vocational training to become a carpenter. Just by a stroke of fate, as he puts it, did he get into acting.
Upon graduation from Munich’s Neue Münchner Schauspielschule Ali Wunsch König and after more additional acting courses he was offered his first role in a film by the cult director Franz X. Bogner, who speaks with the same Bavarian accent as Leo Reisinger does. Whoever has worked with him wants him back, which is a fact that is confirmed by directors like Sibylle Tafel, Andreas Herzog, Max Färberböck, and Peter Baumann. What caught my eyes  -besides the fact that I immediately found myself being drawn into his performance- were his acting craft and his total commitment to his roles. The level of concentration is extreme. He won’t let go and goes all the way until he’s got what he wants. Watching him is so intense that you don’t know whether you’re laughing at or identifying with his character. Unlike in real life, it is Leo Reisinger’s dream to get a chance to play the bad guy. Rest assured that he will show us the abyss.

On stage, Leo Reisinger can fully play out his natural spontaneity. He loves to perform on stage and also does his own readings. His last role on stage was the lead in the Bavarian cult play Wildschütz Jennerwein. In addition to his acting commitments he is also a piano player in his rock band and (at a surcharge) might also get into singing everyone in a while. His English is perfect since he spent a year in Australia.
