Klaus Kinski

Kinski at the 1988 [[Cannes Film Festival]] Klaus Kinski (, born Klaus Günter Karl Nakszynski 18 October 1926 – 23 November 1991) was a German actor. Equally renowned for his intense performance style and notorious for his volatile personality, he appeared in over 130 film roles in a career that spanned 40 years, from 1948 to 1988. He is best known for starring in five films directed by Werner Herzog from 1972 to 1987 (''Aguirre, the Wrath of God'', ''Nosferatu the Vampyre'', ''Woyzeck'', ''Fitzcarraldo'', and ''Cobra Verde''), who would later chronicle their tumultuous relationship in the documentary ''My Best Fiend''.

Kinski's roles spanned multiple genres, languages, and nationalities, including Spaghetti Westerns, horror films, war films, dramas, and Edgar Wallace ''krimi'' films. His infamy was elevated by a number of eccentric creative endeavors, including a one-man show based on the life of Jesus Christ, a biopic of violinist Niccolò Paganini directed by and starring himself, and over twenty spoken word albums.

Kinski was prone to emotional and often violent outbursts aimed at his directors and fellow cast members, issues complicated by a history of mental illness. Herzog described him as "one of the greatest actors of the century, but also a monster and a great pestilence."

Posthumously, he was accused of physically and sexually abusing his daughter Pola. His notoriety and prolific output has developed into a widespread cult following and a reputation as a popular icon. Provided by Wikipedia
