We are delighted to announce Lilian Schiffer as part of the In Souliloquy team for Cycle 3 playing Ophelia (after Hamlet). A woman not happy in life or how she is remembered in death.
Lilian graduated with distinction from East 15 Acting School in 2012 and has since worked in theatre, film and voice over. Previous Theatre includes “These Are Your Lives” (Yard Theatre), directed by Alexander Rennie, DreamThinkSpeak’s “In the Beginning Was the End” at Somerset House and “Hamlyn” at the Space Theatre. Other roles included Imogen (Cymbeline) at Shakespeare’s Globe, Lucienne (An Absolute Turkey), Daisy (Rhinoceros) and roles in various devised and new plays. She also lent her voice to Käthe Kollwitz in BBC 2’s “Great War Diaries”.
Since 1994 she has worked extensively in German TV and film, most notably the award-winning feature film “Rosenstrasse”, directed by Margarethe von Trotta. Since her graduation she worked on several short films in the UK, which have been screened at various film festivals. In 2014 she was a founding member of PPP Films, a film production team, that produces innovative TV concepts and short films. @PPPFilms
Lilian plays a self-aware and possessed Ophelia, who knows herself and her pain far more than her former love ever did.
