The Hollywood Reporter is taking notice of Strasberg Alum Christoph Waltz. Waltz has already won the prize for Best Actor at Cannes, and he is a clear front-runner for an Oscar and a bunch of other hardware this aware season.
Former Strasberg Student Christoph Waltz in Inglourious Basterds
He has been acting for a long while and shares a pretty healthy perspective that’s routed in his own sense of owning a craft. It is a trait we hope all our students carry with them – a sense of something unique that they have to offer the Industry and the World.
Waltz has been acting for a long while. A German student, he studied with us back in the day and has suddenly found his career booming after his stunning performance in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. My favorite line is, “In Europe, everybody would say, ‘Well, they just want to squeeze you like a lemon.’ Well, yeah! But, you know, if I have the juice, why shouldn’t they?”
Ha! It’s all about having the juice!
