About me

I am Sima Bürgin, a deeply committed actress with a wealth of training and skills that have shaped my artistic journey. My heart beats for the art of acting, and I am passionate about any role that gives me the opportunity to delve into different worlds.

Through my travels around the world, I have discovered the joy of being at home in many countries and languages. This diversity has expanded my range as an actress and helped me understand subtle nuances in human relationships.

I have learned the importance of teamwork through a variety of on-set experiences in numerous engagements. Whether on stage or in front of the camera, I feel at home everywhere and love bringing stories to life.

I count confidence in my lines and a broad experience with a variety of texts among my strengths, which have been nurtured through specialized training and my work as a professional voice artist. Collegiality is equally important to me because creativity thrives best in a supportive environment.

In addition to my acting career, I have a solid foundation in fitness and health. As a trained ballet dancer, Pilates instructor, trainer, and fitness coach, I am well-conditioned and able to work under stressful conditions.

I would additionally like to note that I play the violin and piano, skills which often come in handy in films. I have been playing the violin in a semi-professional orchestra for 20 years, and we regularly perform concerts.

I look forward to welcoming you to my journey through the world of acting and creating unforgettable moments together. Thanks to my passion, skills, and determination, I am ready for new challenges and exciting projects. Let's collaborate and tell stories that touch hearts.
