Early life[edit]

Born in Anklam, Western Pomerania, Schweighöfer attended the renowned acting school Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts, but dropped out after one year.[1] Nevertheless, the son of an actor couple[2] is considered as one of the most promising talents of European Film and has already worked with established directors such as Peter Greenaway.


His first role in a feature film was Raus aus der Haut (1997) (TV), directed by Andreas Dresen. In the following years, he appeared in critically acclaimed projects such as Soloalbum (2003), Off Beat (2004) or Das wilde Leben (2007) and Keinohrhasen.[3] In 2010 Schweighöfer made his debut as film director with the romantic comedy What a Man, followed in 2013 by his second movie Schlussmacher.

In 2009 he founded the fashion label German Garment with TV-Presenter Joko Winterscheidt.[4]
