Martin Laue was born and raised in Bautzen, Saxony and at the age of 18 moved to Berlin in order to do the mandatory military service after he had completed his apprenticeship. While meeting his obligations in the capital city he gathered all his courage to pursue his dream of becoming an actor and auditioned for drama school. Although he didn’t have any experience in performing, he knew that what he did and what he was going to do was right. During his audition at Munich’s Otto Falckenberg Schule -it was only his second audition- the deciding panel was convinced by his great talent and he was accepted at one of Germany’s most distinguished drama schools. It became the most exciting and memorable experience in his life up to that point and so he tried to absorb as much of the information and techniques as possible and got his diploma in 2011 which was topped off with a scholarship granted by the Deutscher Bühnenverein to up-and-coming acting talent. Martin Laue decided soon after his graduation that he wanted to work as a freelance actor in order to be able to incorporate working for film and TV as well as for theater. He has stayed with that decision ever since. So during and after drama school, theater directors of the Kammerspiele München, Residenztheater München, and Theater Erlangen were able to convince Martin Laue to guest-star in selected productions at their venues. Also during his years at drama school, he began to tune his craft in front of the camera. His ability to act naturally, his comedic talent and strong will are the ingredients that make up for his strength as an actor. When looking through the scenes on his demo reel it became clear to me that the directors had allowed him to fully play out his scenes and thereby securing him as much screen time as possible. This is due to the fact that Martin Laue is capable of transporting thought content and intention of a character in a way that I have rarely seen before. I hope for Martin Laue that he will meet directors that give him all the room he deserves to develop his ideas in the future.
