German actress of Turkish descent, Canan Samadi, based between Spain and Germany was recently seen in the Oscar-nominated film "The Teachers' Lounge" by İlker Çatak. 
Canan Samadi's career, which began in 2016 with her leading role in the Austrian feature film "Die Farbe des Chamäleons," has since established her as a promising figure in European cinema.
Her global recognition surged with the series "Bad Banks," directed by Christian Schwochow, which was celebrated at the 2018 Berlin International Film Festival and also broadcasted on Hulu. Her wide range in main roles across numerous student film productions (DFFB, HMS) proves her capability to lead with compelling depth.
