Lenn Kudrjawizki moved as a child with his parents from Leningrad to East Berlin. At the age of four, Lenn auditioned on the stage with the Leningrad State Ballet. At five, he became enchanted with a violin that his father brought down from the attic of the family home. This was to play an important part in his life. Later he attended a secondary school for music in Berlin where he studied acting, voice, and violin. In Dresden he refined his skills on the violin at the Carl Maria von Weber Music Academy and studied piano and composition. He gratuated with a Master of Arts in Music in 2003. In 1994 he made his television debut as a teenager with the role of Wladimir in the film Katrin und Wladimir. After many more performances on TV and in Films, he played in Jean-Jacques Annaud’s Duel — Enemy at the Gates in 2000. The following year he played the leading role in Alain Gsponer’ s feature film Kiki & Tiger for which he was awarded the Förderpreis Deutscher Film (German film prize for young talent). Lenn was a member of the cast of the highly acclaimed RTL series "Abschnitt 40" from 2001 to 2006. Since, he was able to perform in more that 20 Tv and film productions, including Pipermint... das Leben möglicherweise, Stefan Ruzowitzky’s The Counterfeiters - 2008 Oscar winner for best foreign-language film -¸ and Sönke Wortmann’s Pope Joan. Lenn had his first experience behind the camera in 2007, when he both directed and starred in the short film Today Is My Day. His most recent work as a director, Thank You Mr. President, was completed at the beginning of 2009. Both were officially rated as “excellent.”by the German Filmboard. Thank You Mr. President was nominated for the German First Steps Awards, the Max Ophuls Price and the Hofer Filmtage. It has won the Murnau price 2010. In addition to his career in film and television, music still plays an important part in Lenn’s life. His first album, LENN – PopArt, has already appeared, and the second is to be issued shortly.
