Claus Biederstaedt was born in Stargard, a mid-sized historic town in Pomerania, the son of a senior educational councillor who was also a conductor and taught music and art history. He was conscripted into the army as a 16-year old and served on the Eastern Front, barely managing to escape to the west ahead of the Russian advance in 1945. His mother, believing her only son killed in action, tragically committed suicide by poison. Biederstaedt eventually reunited with his father in Hamburg and began to study medicine on the way to a career as a physician. However, after matriculating, he changed his plans and instead joined the ensemble of the Deutsches Theatre in Hamburg where he received acting tuition from noted thespians Will Quadflieg and Joseph Offenbach. He made his stage debut in 1950 and two years later first appeared on screen in the medical drama Die große Versuchung (1952), winning a coveted Film Award in Gold as most promising newcomer.At the peak of his popularity in the 50s and 60s, Biederstaedt popped up in as many as five pictures a year, becoming one of the most sought-after lead actors in German cinema. A cheerful presence, he made himself at home in most contemporary genres, from wartime melodramas to romantic comedies (he famously gave Romy Schneider her first screen kiss in Feu d'artifice (1954)). By the 1970s, he made regular TV appearances (Der Kommissar (1969), Le renard (1977), Inspecteur Derrick (1974), etc.) and worked behind the microphone as a singularly prolific voice-over actor, his trademark deep, smoky tones used for dubbing (among others) Peter Falk (Columbo (1971)), James Garner (Deux cent dollars plus les frais (1974)), Gregory Peck (Larry le liquidateur (1991)), Gene Hackman (Les aventuriers du Lucky Lady (1975)), Richard Harris (Un homme nommé Cheval (1970) ), Yul Brynner (Pancho Villa (1968)), Paul Newman (Le rideau déchiré (1966)) and Marlon Brando (Les séducteurs (1964)). Biederstaedt also acted on and directed for the stage until cancer pre-empted his retirement in 2008. He died on June 18 2020, ten days prior to his 92nd birthday. - IMDb Mini Biography By: I.S.Mowis
