Christopher Buchholz

Christopher Buchholz's choice of profession probably wasn't a difficult one. Not only was he the son of actors -- German star Horst Buchholz and his wife, Myriam Bru -- but he was also born in the show business cradle of Los Angeles. Although his life started in L.A., his career developed in Europe. His first role was as Turkish would-be papal assassin Ali Agca in the docudrama mini-series "Atentato al Papa" (1986). Two years later, he felt the pull of Hollywood and appeared in the minor part of Stefan in the Red Scare drama "The House on Carroll Street." But it was Europe that provided his first significant TV series job, playing Claudio Torres for 11 episodes of the German TV family melodrama "Das Erbe der Guldenburgs." After that, Buchholz has largely worked in productions based on that continent. His fluency in several of its languages (Italian, French and German as well as English), increased his opportunities for work. The actor has appeared in film and TV projects originating from Italy (the 2004 film "Fino a farti male"), France (the 2005 TV mini-series "A Cursed Monarchy"), and Germany (the 2008 Berlin-set drama "Helden aus der Nachbarschaft"). From time to time, he has played parts in big-budget multinational efforts like 2003 "Luther" (2003), a biopic of Martin Luther, the Christian reformer and church founder.
