First of all, thank you for visiting my page.
As you may well have realised by now, my name is Robin Schroeter. I have been living in Thailand for roughly 12 years now. I am an Actor, Coach and Director.
I have been in love with acting and theatre ever since my high school days. It is a love that continues until today. I glow when I go onto stage as actor. Every. Single. Time.
Coaching is one of my passions as well. Currently, I am specialising in dialogue coaching for Thai and English speaking actors that take on German-speaking-parts in german movies. This kind of work I find particularly exciting. It combines my experience and skills in acting as well as my language skills. For more information about coaching please visit my section on coaching.
One of my dreams came true when I studied MA Directing at Chualongkorn University. The studies gave me a deeper insight into acting, directing and myself as a person – I always likened to think of myself as a good person.
In 2010, I co-founded All Soul Production Co., Ltd together with Maurizio Mistretta and Patchanee Poonthong. I left my position as actor and PR officer at All Soul Production in 2011. Since then I have been a freelance actor working with various theatre groups and projects such as: B-Floor Theatre, Moradokmai, Monta Productions, Nophand Boonyai, Ka-Ge Mulvilai, Jaturachai Srichanwanpen, Democrazy Studios, Chertsak Pratumseesakhon, All Soul Production, the Bangkok Community Theatre, Chulalongkorn University and Bangkok University.
The Corporate Actor
My experience in the corporate world combined with my actors training have led me to take on jobs in corporate role play. I enjoy coprorate role plays as part of my experience as actor and to hone my improvisation skills.
The Language Coach
Another skill that I enjoy exploring is the work as language coach for german movies that are being shot in Thailand. Since 2012 I have taken on more and more work as language coach. Some of the bigger productions that I have been proud of being part of were: the award winning movie Patong Girl (the part of Fai, 2014), Schwarzbrot in Pattaya (the part of Anchalee, 2015-16), Herr Lenz reist in den Fruehling (the part of Luck, 2015)
From Stage to Screen
I made my first move from stage to film in early 2012 and have since acted in numerous TV commercials, short films, Thai soaps and featured films.

An Actor’s Training is never finished
I am a strong believer in acting as a trade. I train, practice and develop myself all the time. That is one of the interesting parts of being an actor. It is a work that is never finished. There is always something new to learn. I regularly participates in trainings and workshops training various techniques. Some of the workshops I have attended include “Just Being” Sanford Meisner based Workshop by Nophand Boonyai. As part of the Arts on Location program I attended the “Viewpoints” by Carlos Nicolau Antunes, “The Body Alphabets” physical and vocal techniques developed by Zygmunt Molik and Jerzy Grotowski by Jorge Parente. Furthermore, physical theatre workshops as “Moving from Visualization” by Vidura Amranand, “Minimalism (economic & effective) Acting and Movement” by the Thai National Artist – Nikorn Sae Tang, and “Viewpoints” Physical Theatre Workshop by B-Floor Theatre Bangkok. Gymlab Stanislavski based acting lessons with John Marengo.
The Next Step
Finally, I was able to make one of my dreams come true to study acting and directing in a 2 year program as part of my MA in Directing at Chulalongkorn University.
