By the good offices from a good friend of the family he was actting the first time at the age
of ten for a TV-film. "Blut und Ehre - Jugend unter Hitler" was one of the most important work
of his time as a child star. This film won many awards and got international recognition. As a
teenager Burkhard took dancing lessons but his career as a ballet-dancer ended with a fracture.
In the past he played a role in two, very successful German movies: "Acting It Out (Little
Sharks)" and "Making Up". Last time we saw him on TV was in "Superfire" and we expect to see
him again in the near future in "YU".
Gedeon Burkhard loves his Pontiac '72, noble suits, dry Martinis, the wit of Harald Schmidt
and wind surfing.
