Date of Birth: Oct 8, 1926
Biography: Though he invariably looked sickly and tubercular, Polish/German actor Klaus Kinski rose to fame in roles calling for near-manic aggressiveness. His war career consisted primarily of a year and a half in a British POW camp. After this experience, Kinski took to the theater, where he rapidly built a reputation for on-stage brilliance and off-stage emotional instability. International stardom came Kinski's way via his off-the-beam appearances in the films of director Werner Herzog. With 1989's Paganini, he proved to be as colorful and chaotic a director as he was an actor. He was the father of actress Nastassja Kinski; died in 1991.
