Alexander Koll discovered his love for acting in a literature circle at the Städtisches Gymnasium Eschweiler. After completing his community service and a 6-month stay in Australia, Koll began to study economics and economic geography, which he gave up after only one semester. Koll then completed an internship at the Aachen Theatre before beginning his studies at the Rostock University of Music and Theatre in September 2003[1]which he completed in 2007 with a diploma. Koll had already played one of his first roles in 2005 in the role of Demetrius in William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Mecklenburg State Theatre in Schwerin. From 2007 to 2014 he had a permanent engagement at the Theater Augsburg. Here he was, among others, Sigismund Sülzheimer in the operetta Im weißen Rößl by Ralph Benatzky, Duke Orsino in the Shakespeare comedy Was ihr wollt, Jonathan Brewster in Arsen und Spitzenhäubchen by Joseph Kesselring and Obrist Kottwitz in Prinz Friedrich von Homburg by Heinrich von Kleist.[2][3]

Alexander Koll has been working for film and television since the late 2000s. He starred in the first 111 episodes of the series Die Anrheiner as Inspector Michael Sommer, had guest roles in other series such as SOKO Köln and Mein Leben & Ich and appeared in various episodes of the comedy series Knallerfrauen alongside Martina Hill. Koll has also appeared in several radio drama productions for Westdeutscher Rundfunk.

In 2006 Alexander Koll received a solo prize at the Treffen deutscher Schauspielschulen in Munich. He lives in Aachen.[2]
