After having admired the actress in this year’s much talked about episode “Warum” of German blockbuster series “Tatort” directed by Max Färberböck, we are looking forward to two exciting new projects with Valentina Sauca in 2023:
“Gefesselt”, directed by Florian Schwarz for Amazon Prime, starring Oliver Masucci, Angela Häntsch and Sylvester Groth and “Drift”, directed by Tim Trachte and Ngo The Chau for Sky.
Though Sauca is particularly convincing when portraying tragic characters, she has also proven an uncanny comedic talent in projects such as the Web series “Straight Family”, the movie “Dinoasaurier” by Leander Haußmann or the crime comedy “Mortal Transfer”, directed by French legend Jean-Jacques Beineix.
Her CV might explain some of this versatility: Born in Romania, Sauca arrived in Germany at the age of nine and took part in swimming competitions as a child, even reaching the German championships. Her interest in fashion soon led to a modelling career, first in London and later in Los Angeles, where she also studied Interior Design at Santa Monica College.
From there she went to Paris, where, within her very first year, she managed to get accepted into the highly sought-after free class of famed drama school Cours Florent.
Ever since, the actress, who is fluent in five languages, has starred in international theater, tv and movie productions.
She also hosted the French-German lifestyle magazine “Chic” in both languages for ARTE.
As a true sportswoman however, Mrs. Sauca is always up for a new challenge. Not only did she study psychoanalysis in Paris for five years, thus now being able to coach fellow actors. She also turned into a business woman, co-creating an artist’s management.
And should she ever have a dull moment, her two children (both actors) and the two adopted dogs keep Valentina in the flow.
