Born into a worker family in the GDR, East Germany, Marcel Miska grew up with an ever-present passion for acting, music and writing.
As a young boy, he loved to sing and play guitar and drums. Always living by the motto, “Enough moments and you have a life,” and inspired by his idols The Bangles, at the age of fourteen Marcel began writing his own songs and formed his first rock band.
He left high school a year later and got a job at a small radio station in his hometown.
Surrounded by moderators, speakers and performers, Miska wanted to do more than to watch other people use their talents and accomplish their goals. He felt encouraged to pursue a professional career in the arts, and decided studying theater as a way to utilize his love of music, writing; and acting would help to bring his dream to fruition.
In late 2003, Marcel left his band and applied to the theater school Schauspielschule Charlottenburg in Berlin. He passed the audition and soon relocated to Germany’s capital.
During his education, Miska had a recurring role in the German daily soap opera Gute Zeiten, Schlechte Zeiten, produced by Grundy UFA Film productions.
He also found work behind the camera in a production office for a major broadcasting channel that came up with the idea of a brand new German weekly television show.
It was during this time that he started working on his first novel As long as we live.
Marcel graduated at age 25 from the Starter – Berliner Schauspielschule für Film und Fernsehen, an acting school focused on camera, film and television.
Through the years he did a number of short films as well as a cinema movie and music videos; additionally, he was part of different theater and music productions, and worked as a voice over artist for a dubbing studio in Berlin as well as in London, England.
In 2014, Miska changed course and finally moved to London, England, working as an actor, voice over artist and author.
The following year he travelled half the world. Returning back to London in 2016, and with more comprehensive perspectives and skills in both, private and as an artist, he wrote and published his next novels The Game Boys Club and The Lost Boys, as well as a book with poems in his mother tongue, Kleiner Gedichtband.
In late 2017 Marcel found a second home base in Vancouver, Canada. With his first supporting role at the CBS Television Studios for the TV Series Salvation, Miska signed up with a canadian Agency for Actors and became an international artist.
Marcels latest success is playing a leading part in the German cinema movie Das geheimnisvolle Album. As Pit the punk weasel he captured the hearts of the audience. The movie was released early summer 2018 at Astor Film Lounge Berlin – Kurfürstendamm.
