Tim Bergmann was born in Düsseldorf on March 2 1972. From 1991 until 1994, he studied acting at the renowned Otto-Falckenberg-Schule in Munich. During that time, he already appeared in theatre plays at the Münchener Kammerspiele. In 1995, he made his screen debut in a small supporting role in Rainer Matsutani's crime caper "Nur über meine Leiche". The same year, he was cast as the lead for the TV series "Zwei zum Verlieben" (1995-1996). He also gained popularity with his second screen role in Rolf Silber's box-office hit "Echte Kerle": For his portrayal of a gay auto mechanic, Bergmann was nominated for a German Film Award .

In 1997, he appeared alongside Götz George and Corinna Harfouch in the thriller "Solo für Klarinette" which was directed by Nico Hofmann.

Moreover, he participated in Hans-Christoph Blumenberg's semi-focumentary drama "Die letzte Schlacht", a re-enactment of the final days in Hitler's bunker. Meanwhile, he made himself rare on the big screen, and after "Mondscheintarif" (2001), it took nine years before Bergmann again starred in a cinema release: In Dennis Todorović's gay romantic comedy "Sascha", he played a piano teacher who is adored by his student.
