EMILIA ROSA DE FRIES is a german-francophone actress. After completing her state diploma in acting at Hochschule für Darstellende Kunst Stuttgart, Emilia accepted an engagement at Staatstheater Stuttgart. She had the pleasure of working with a variety of prestigious theater directors as a professional theater actress. After one year, she decided to switch to the acting company of Stadttheater Aachen, which is renowned for its interdisciplinary artistic program that offered a combination of classical acting, modern performance and music theater.
In the course of the next five years in theater company, Emilia developed her very own brand of performative acting across over thirty company productions on the big stage. In 2014, she took this style to silver screen in the film Wodka&Icecream by Kolja Malik. In 2015, she translated her artistic self-expression into a proper theater production, produced by Theater Aachen. In 2016, she took on a new challenge by becoming a freelance actress with theater groups named Prinzip Gonzo and Costa Companie in the city of Berlin. In 2018 she wrote her first own play, offering her interpretation of a modern version of Shakespeare’s Ophelia. In 2019, Emilia returned to a traditional company at Schauspielhaus Düsseldorf. In 2020, she is looking forward to exploring camera acting further. Emilia lives in Berlin.
