Klaus Kinski (born Klaus Günter Karl Nakszynski, October 18, 1926 – November 23, 1991) was a German actor. He appeared in more than 130 films, among which are the well-known films Doctor Zhivago (1965), For a Few Dollars More (1965), A Bullet for the General (1966), The Great Silence (1968), Aguirre: The Wrath of God (1972), Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979) and Cobra Verde (1987). His children Nastassja, Pola and Nikolai are also actors.
N.B. A popular legend about the filming of Aguirre, the Wrath of God (which took place on location in the Peruvian rain forest), holds that conditions were so harsh that director Werner Herzog had to carry a handgun to keep the cast and crew at work. Kinski denied the anecdote, stating firmly that there was only one gun on the location, and it was his (with which he shot off one of the extra's fingertips).
