Trivia (2)

Broad-faced, nasally voiced German character actor, often seen in explosive roles. On stage from 1909, he had a successful start in films after being engaged by Fritz Lang to play affable police Kommissar Karl Lohmann in "M" and "The Testament of Dr. Mabuse". His post-war acting career was interrupted (1951-1955) by injuries sustained in an accident and he consequently diversified as a drama teacher and voice-over artist.
Father of Annemarie Wernicke.
