Bruno Ganz Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Mar 22, 1941
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Swiss-born actor Bruno Ganz established himself in Germany, first as co-founder of the Schaubuhne Theatre company, then as a romantic lead in films. International renown came Ganz' way when he was starred in Eric Rohmer's [[Feature~V127334~The Marquise of O~themarquiseofo]] (1976). Subsequent film roles range from Jonathan Harker in Werner Herzog's 1979 remake of Nosferatu, to misplaced angel Damiel in Wim Wenders' [[Feature~V54797~Wings of Desire~wingsofdesire]] (1987). Another of his many collaborations with director Wenders was [[Feature~V1966~The American Friend~theamericanfriend]] (1977), which Ganz regards as one of his favorite films, even though he and co-star Dennis Hopper came to blows during a spirited argument about acting technique. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
