Wolfgang Krewe

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wolfgang Krewe (born October 20, 1966 in Munich ) is a German actor who lives mainly in Berlin .


Wolfgang Krewe's father died when he was just 13 years old, so that from then on he had to get along with his mother and two siblings without his father's income. He actually wanted to become a musician, because his idol was Ringo Starr , the drummer for the Beatles . To make this dream come true, at the age of 14, he started working in a bakery while attending school so that he could buy his own drum kit. On the advice of his mother, he trained as a hairdresser and during this time he founded the band "The legendary Black Pumuckels" with two friends.

After completing his education, he did his community service , kept himself afloat with odd jobs and began to earn a living with music. A friend from the music scene made him aware of an acting workshop by John Costopolous at the Actor Studio in New York , so that he finally came into contact with acting. In 1989 Krewe applied to the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York. Despite having passed the entrance exam, he was unable to begin the training due to a lack of financial resources. It was not until 1990 that he finally took acting lessons at the Ruth von Zerboni drama school in Gauting near Munich.
