Varick Addler was born on Aug 20, 1971 in a small town in Germany to Marianne, a secretary at Siemens Health Care, and Herbert Roesch, head of department at M.A.N. Maschinenfabrik Augsburg-Nürnberg AG HVAC. He has one brother, Peter.
He finished the “Acting for Film Conservatory Bachelor/Master Program” at NYFA New York Film Academy (Los Angeles). He’s an well known Sandy Meisner trained Actor and Novelist.
As a child he discovered his love of books, reading, and stories, devouring the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, James Branch Cabell, Edgar Allan Poe, Michael Moorcock, Ursula K. LeGuin, Gene Wolfe, and G.K. Chesterton.
Varick Addler is an engaging fiction author determined to follow the footsteps of C.S. Lewis as a master of various genres, writing with the heart of a vivacious Imaginer dedicated to entertaining and putting forth the light of the world based on his faith and visions.
The world is not black and white and Varick doesn’t see a reason his fictional worlds must be written as such, so he writes multicultural, interracial stories with suspense, love, science fiction and action. He writes a range of genres including poetry, mystery, suspense romance, science fiction and adventure stories.
“As Actors, as Novelists -as Artists- we are the last of the shamans, the keepers of fantasy, Knights Templar of the creative! And I think it also helps if you are a Dreamer. I had my dreams all right. And that is something no one can ever take away. They cost nothing, and they can be as real as you like to make them. You own your dreams and they are priceless. I’ve been a lavatory attendant, a theatre usher, a panhandler, all for real. Now, as an Actor and Novelist, I can be a journalist today and a brain surgeon tomorrow. That’s the stuff my dreams are made of.”
For his brilliant supporting role of a selected test candidate in a therapeutic dream experiment (in the film “Upside Down”), he was awarded with the NIHRFF Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival – Audience Award.
