Bruno Ganz

Actor

Born - 22 March 1941, Zurich-Seebach, Switzerland
Died - 16 February 2019

Thin-lipped, heavy-headed, intense Swiss actor with a lick of dark hair, delivering incisive performances on the international scene for decades, perhaps culminating in his portrayal of Adolf Hitler in the Oscar-nominated Downfall (2004). He was largely anonymous in his early years, but assumed greater prominence in the mid 1970s, when he became an above-the-title star: The Man in the Black Derby (1960), A Roof Over Your Head (1962), Der Sanfte Lauf (1967, his first lead), Lumiere (1976), The American Friend (1977), The Boys from Brazil (1978), Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979), Lost and Found (1980), Circle of Deceit (1981), In the White City (1983), Private Resistance (1985), Wings of Desire (1987), Strapless (1989), The Last Days of Chez Nous (1992), Heiler Tag (1994), Saint-Ex (1996), Eternity and a Day (1998), Bread and Tulips (2000), Luther (2003), The Manchurian Candidate (2004), Vitus (2006), The Reader (2008), Unknown (2011), Night Train to Lisbon (2013), In Order of Disappearance (2014), Heidi (2015), The House That Jack Built (2018), Radegund (2019), his last, and many more. He died from colonic cancer.
