Ken Duken in the Hollywood Reporter: Berlin Roundtable
"A Day for a Miracle" with Ken Duken in the lead role was awarded on 11/25/13 in New York with the International Emmy Award!
Ken Duken began working in front of the camera at the age of 18. Without ever attending drama school he was still able to be coached by the best teacher you can imagine, his mother, the renowned German actress Christina Loeb. To date Ken has played over 90 leading and supporting roles in both cinema and TV productions in Germany and abroad. As with his favourite past time of marathon running, Ken also believes in endurance where his career is concerned too. He never sought the fast track to success, instead he chose roles and projects which he considered to be of interest and suited him best. Quality is a very important factor to Ken. Given the many Awards he has acquired during his career, it is an attribute both the public and the critics seem to appreciate. Although he primarily works abroad in various foreign languages such as English, Italian, Norwegian and French, Ken lives a secluded life with his family in Berlin. He is now also working as a freelance producer and director. In addition to his enthusiasm for his film work, Ken is very passionate about cooking, soccer and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
