Anton von Lucke was born in 1989 in Hamburg where he also grew up and went to school, leaving after completing his ‘Abitur’. Following a voluntary social year in the Hanseatic city he started studing at the well-known drama school, the Hochschule für Schauspielkunst ‘Ernst Busch’ in Berlin, successfully completing the course in 2015. During his studies he received engagements from a number of different theatres in Germany. One year after taking up his studies he worked on the play ‘Sensational Sensation’ at the ‘bat Berlin’, directed by Janne Kummer and Rebecca Bussfeld. Less than a year later Anton von Lucke was given a role in Ödön von Horváth’s ‘Jugend ohne Gott’ (The Age of the Fish) at the Deutsches Theater Berlin (directed by Tilmann Köhler, 2013) and, while performing there, was engaged to play Tamora’s son, Demetrius, in ‘Titus Andronicus’ (directed by Lucia Bihler, 2014) that was widely acclaimed. The actor was then able to expand his repertoire at the Deutsches Theater Göttingen performing in the plays ‘The Black Rider’ (directed by Beate Baron, 2014/15) and ‘Oscar Wilde ein idealer Gatte’ (directed by Thomas Dannemann 2014/15). Since then, he has has made some outstanding performances as a permanent member of the ensemble, for example as Romeo in ‘Romeo und Julia’ (Romeo and Juliet) (directed by Dagmar Schlingmann, 2015/16). Although Anton von Lucke does not intend turning his back on the stage, he has of course also been open to the world of film and no less a director than François Ozon has since managed to win him over to play the role of Frantz in the film of the same name (‘Frantz’; 2015).
