ABOUT

On October 2nd, 1987 Josh was born the son of naturopath Ute and the shaman and meditation teacher Thomas in Berlin-Friedrichshain.


Two years later he saw a GDR jail from the inside. But only for one day, because his father was shooting an unauthorized short film.


A few years later, Josh had to serve again. He was enrolled in a Montessouri School near Berlin.


At the age of 9 Josh was already so full of zest, he imagined and staged a play about NVA soldiers who returned from the war and hung out at a bar. Even then, that made no sense. Nevertheless, the war comedy celebrated a great success at the pacifist school.
 
After Josh grew up very sheltered with his father Thomas in a forge in the countryside, he decided at the age of 16 to move to Berlin alone.

His most difficult role: Heidi Klum

There he did an FSJ (voluntary social year), working with children and the handicapped, before graduating the University of Applied Sciences as a social welfare major. You could say that Josh is a certified Gooder. And like any good guy, Josh's dream was to train with monks in Asia.


After a thousand bowls of rice and training hours, Josh moved back to Berlin.


He entered the film business and gained his first shooting experience in the Til Schweiger film “1 1/2 Knight" alongside stunt coordinator Volkhart Buff.


For his first steps on a stage, apart from those in the Montessori School, Josh went to the small off-theater “Reißverschluß” with director Joachim Stargard.     The most difficult role he ever played in a german theater, he was casted in at the Deutsche Theater, Berlin. Shaving his legs to play Heidi Klum demanded a lot from the young actor.
The Berlin based Talentagent Anke Balzer, found Joshua, who combines  acting, fighting and do-gooder in one person, very exciting and contracted him in 2011.


In 2014 and 2016, Josh's agent, whom he affectionately calls his 007, had to give him up almost all year round because the Matrix Creators hired Josh as a fight designer. Worldwide, he shoot the new sci fi series for Netflix "Sense 8", in which in season 2 he was also part of the cast.
 
He currently lives in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg and plans to move to Mitte.
