Ada Condeescu is 26 years old. She has already played in two award-winning Romanian films, “If I want to whistle I whistle” and “Loverboy”.

“You have to be like a sponge, open to everything. You have to use your mind but also your instinct. Passing an audition is sometimes harder and more challenging than shooting a movie,” she says.

Ada has been selected to take part in this year’s Shooting Stars programme. Along with nine other young actors and actresses from different European countries, she gets to rub shoulders with the creme de la creme of cinema at the Berlin Film Festival. It is a chance for her to make a name for herself outside of her country.
