Manuela Wenger

About me

Manuela Wenger is an actress with a unique background that sets her apart from the rest. Before realizing her talent for acting, she spent her days tending to the fields and horses on her family's farm in the Bernese Alps, often working as a show-woman with future racehorses at horse auctions across Europe. 
 
Despite her rural roots and degree in engineering in agronomy, Manuela has always had a love for the performing arts. Today she brings her down-to-earth charm and naturalness to the entertainment industry. 

Manuela acts in plays, films, commercials, business trainings & exams and works as a presenter, voice artist, model and coach for acting and presentation skills.
