Born November 1985 in Lübz, Germany. Brought up in East-Berlin. Moved abroad aged 17.
Carolin Ott trained at the School of Physical Theatre London (now based in Canada), where she completed an intensive one year Lecoq course. She then continued her studies on the three year BA (Hons) Acting Course (pathway- Collaborative and Devised Theatre) at the renowned Royal Central School of Speech and Drama before enjoying a more classical, postgraduate acting training at Drama Studio London. The marriage of all has given her a unique and rounded approach to her work.
Since graduating from Drama School in 2010 Carolin has worked on stage and screen internationally. Her work includes collaborations with award winning theatre companies such as: Theaterlabor Bielefeld (DE), Teatr A Part (PL), Frantic Assembly (UK), Panzerkreuzer Rotkäppchen (DE), Theatre Lab Company (UK/ GR), Plavo Pozorište (SRB) and Association Arsène (FR). Carolin believes that theatre is and can be for everyone and is particularly interested in socio-political subjects, ensemble work, classical text, combining different mediums to create stories and identity.
As a voice over artist she regularly records animations for the Goethe Institute and past clients include the BBC, IHG, Scholl, YouTube, Vodafone, PURE, Olympia, Hodder & Stoughton, EasyJet, KPMG, Comedy Central News and many more.
At the beginning of 2017 – after living abroad for 13 years – Carolin made the decision to pack two suitcases and move back to her hometown Berlin.

After an eight week Marathon of devising and rehearsing a new play ‘Money Matters’ with Platypus Theatre and premiering at Ufa Fabrik Berlin on 29.10.2020, we have been informed that ALL our shows have been cancelled in November due to the new lockdown regulations. I am trying really hard to keep the spirit up. Onwards and upwards!

Getting a home studio has definitely paid off! Enjoying the process of getting to know my voice better and recording at home and in studios. Gave my voice to projects for Scholl, YouTube and Netto in recent weeks. Thank you to deVine Voices, ChatterBox Voices and Sprecherdatei for their continuous support and getting my voice heard!
