His first break came with a small part in the 1992 TV movie " Schlafende Hunde." Axel Prahl has been one of the most prolific actors of his generation, appearing in multiple projects as diverse as Roman Polanski's "The Pianist," Andreas Dresen's acclaimed marital drama "Grill Point," and cheesy TV movies like "Policewoman."
