Born in 1978 in the town of Munich, Leo Reisinger was raised outside of the city receiving piano lessons and going through vocational education to eventually become a carpenter. It was by “a happy chance” as Leo puts it that he came across acting and then decided to change paths to take yet more training, this time though to become an actor. So he finished his studies at the Neue Muenchner Schauspielschule Ali Wunsch Koenig and was offered his first role by iconic director Franz X. Bogner. The two turned out to be a natural team having the same idiom of a local southern-Bavarian accent that is spoken in the countryside around Munich. More work followed by way of collaboration with directors as well known as Max Faerberboeck, Sibylle Tafel, Johannes Fabrick, and Marvin Kren. In 2014, Leo played the lead in the Student Academy Award winning film “Border Patrol” helmed by Peter Baumann.  Since 2018, Leo Reisinger is the eponymous character of Toni in the ARD network primetime series “Toni, Maennlich, Hebamme”.  Apart from acting, Leo plays in and composes songs for his own rock band and on top of that is the head writer for two in-development TV series.  Not to forget are Leo’s English speaking skills that he got to perfect during a one-year stay in Australia.
