From 1999 until 2008, Waschke was a regular staff member of the Berlin theatre company Schaubühne under Thomas Ostermeier, who has described him as "a goodlooking, virile actor, who takes full responsibility for his play and display of emotional diversity.

At Schaubühne he played lead roles in plays such as William Shakespeare's Macbeth and Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

In 2006, he performed at the Deutsches Theater Berlin in Kasimir und Karoline by Ödön von Horváth (directed by Andreas Dresen) and in 2009 at the Maxim Gorki Theater Berlin in Leonce and Lena by Georg Büchner , directed by Jan Bosse.

Since 2005, Waschke has appeared in television series and films, notably Buddenbrooks, directed by Heinrich Breloer, 2008, Habermann (2010), The City Below, directed by Christoph Hochhäusler, 2010 Summer Window, directed by Hendrik Handloegten, 2011 and Generation War, directed by Philipp Kadelbach, 2013.

Since 2009, he has been a regular member in the Tatort series, playing detective Robert Karow since the 2015 episode "Ätzend", directed by Dror Zahavi until his last episode, as of 2017, "Amour fou".

Since the 2013/14 season, he has rejoined the Schaubühne. He has said, that acting on stage is a mental and physical need, not only because it does not get interrupted as in filming but also "for a different kind of responsibility, for oneself, the role, the play, the great ritual, which at best doesnt only do something for the audience [...]. In a rare moment it becomes utopia."


In 2009, Waschke won the Prize for Best Actor in a leading Role at the Roma Fiction Fest and the Bavarian Film Awards for Best Actor in Habermann, in 2012 he was awarded the Franz-Hofer-Prize and in 2013 he won the German Actors Award.

Personal life

Waschke lives in Berlin with his wife, daughter and son.
