Andre Schneider lives in Berlin (Germany) and London (UK). He is a graduate from the world famous actor school Lee Strasberg Institute in New York. He appeared in several international TV productions like the British cult favorite's "London's burning!" and "Taggart" but also in international movies like "Wish you where here" or "Dos Billetes". But that is not enough, he is also active on the production front as producer and writer of movies like "Deed Poll" and "Der Mann im Keller".
Andre has written 2 published books in 2004 in English "Life is a sexually transmitted disease" and in 2005 in German "Die Sprache der Scherben", both available at Amazon.de.
As mentioned Andre Schneider is also fascinated by the life and works of Marisa Mell. He has also created a site in her honor (http://marisamell.wordpress.com/).
On this site you can find three very interesting articles about Marisa Mell written by Andre:
The first is written in German about the lives and similarities of Marisa Mell and her friend Romy Schneider (http://andreschneider.wordpress.com/2007/10/27/romy-vs-marisa-verneigung-vor-der-trash-queen/)
The second is in Spanish about Marisa Mell in the movie Marta (http://andreschneider.wordpress.com/2007/08/16/marta-y-historia-de-una-traicion/)
And finally the third one is in German as a portrait of Marisa Mell (http://andreschneider.wordpress.com/2006/07/29/portrait-marisa-mell/)
Andre Schneider has also a very interesting personal blog about his private and professional life. (http://andreschneider.wordpress.com/)
But that is not all. The best always comes at the end! Andre Schneider told me that he is working on a biography on the life of Marisa Mell. Personally I am very happy to hear that because I think it was long overdue and the time is going to be right to get it published around her 20th year of passing. Knowing his dedication and love for the subject, the book will be very good. In future entries we will come back to report on further developments on that front!
