Ursula Buschhorn in the play Ein brillianter Mord
Runing time from 16. January till 18. February 2017
Director Stefan Zimmermann
Ursula Buschhorn was born in Palo Alto, CA in 1969. Her father is a scientist and so the family got to travel frequently. Before the family moved back to Europe Ursula Buschhorn attended 4th and 5th grade at a Palo Alto elementary school. Her proficiency in spoken English is a result of that time. She graduated from German High School in Munich and went on to go to state drama school in Stuttgart from 1989 to 1993. Her graduation performance was Leonora d’Este in Goethe’s Torquato Tasso. After drama school she played in several productions at Stuttgart’s Wilhelma Theater. After the premieres of Festung in Frankfurt and Beyond the Horizon in Wuppertal (both under the direction of Rainald Götz), Ursula Buschhorn started her film career in 1994 playing a series regular for two consecutive years as Anna Sanwaldt, one of the main character’s daughters, on the highly successful TV series Alle meine Töchter. This was followed by more TV and film roles, among them leading characters in Blutige Spur (Director Carlo Rola), Mit verbundenen Augen (Director Marjan Vajda), Stadt Land Mord (a crime series directed by Dennis Satin), Vaterherz (Director Gabi Kubach), Der Verehrer (Director Dagmar Damek), Auf den Spuren der Vergangenheit (Sharon von Wietersheim) and only recently in the much-loved TV series Familie Dr. Kleist (Directors Donald Kremer / Esther Wenger). In 2008 she appeared in the big screen drama Hotel Maina which was directed by legendary Italian helmer Carlo Lizzani and premiered at the Filmfestival in Venice. Starting in 2011, Ursula Buschhorn has been returning to the stage. After having played in Eine Familie (Director Monika Steil) onstage in Bozen, Italy, she is currently busy doing a stage tour with the production of The Great Gatsby (Director Silvia Armbruster) in which she plays the role of Daisy up until April 2014. At first glance, Ursula Buschhorn’s appearance may be described as being elegant, beautiful, and proud but her roles are anything but one-sided or shallow but rather multifaceted and even unpredictable. I regularly catch myself sensing a certain something that she may be concealing behind her facade as if she knew about something before everybody else did. But isn’t it exactly those slight insecurities that make her all the more down-to-earth, likeable, and popular? I would definitely say yes!
