Interview: Daniel Brühl | 2018 Marrakech Intl. Film Festival

An actor and swiss army knife multi-linguistic for almost three decades now with seminal films in Good Bye Lenin! (2003) and The Edukators (2004) effectively acting as his launchpad, Daniel Brühl (who is moments away from plunging into his first feature as a filmmaker) was one of the juror members at the 2018 Marrakech Intl. Film Festival. I had the chance to speak to him during a roundtable not even 24 hours after learning he had garnered an Emmy nomination for The Alienist. Since he is a history buff, I was curious about if he prefers to play or finds it more difficult to play real people or fictitious characters with historical framework (Inglorious Basterds) or if he prefers carte-blanche. We also discussed his frequent working collaboration with Julie Delpy, his upcoming film My Zoe with her (his first credit as a producer) and found out more about his upcoming directorial debut.
