Interesting Facts

#Fact
1He starred in two World War II films with the same title: Stalingrad (1993) and Stalingrad (2013).
2Now living and working in Los Angeles [2000]
3Was hired to voice Johan Krauss in Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008) but Guillermo Del Toro considered that his voice and the mechanical noise of the character's suit didn't mesh well. The job went to Seth McFarlane.
4He played Count Dracula in Dracula 3D (2012) and his arch nemesis Professor Abraham Van Helsing in Dracula (2013).
5Considered buying a house in the Bahamas while filming Der Seewolf (2008) (aka The Sea Wolf).
6Modeled in Hugo Boss perfume advertisement.
7Made his stage debut in "Macbeth," directed by Katharina Thalbach.
8He has played a Nazi officer in 10 movies so far and, in Have No Fear: The Life of Pope John Paul II (2005), he played Pope John Paul II, who (as the movie shows) fought against and tried to protect people from the Nazis.
9Aged 19, he began a month-long trek from East to West Germany to escape Communism, during which he lost part of his finger to frostbite. He crossed 4 borders with nothing other than a passport and the equivalent of $100 in his possession.
10He has three children: two sons, Nicolas (born 1998) and Alexander 'Sascha' (born 2002), and one daughter, Stella (born 1999), with his ex-girlfriend, Lena Roklin.
11Collaborated again with his The Pianist (2002) co-star Adrien Brody in King Kong (2005). Incidentally, both of Kretschmann's roles with Brody are as captains, albeit of a very different type. In The Pianist (2002), he played a Nazi officer with a conscience; in King Kong (2005) he plays a tough boat captain guiding a film crew.
12Has played a Nazi officer in 11 different, completely unrelated films: Krigerens hjerte (1992), Stalingrad (1993), U-571 (2000), The Pianist (2002), In Enemy Hands (2004), Downfall (2004), Head in the Clouds (2004), Eichmann (2007), Valkyrie (2008), The Sinking of the Laconia (2010) and Stalingrad (2013).
13Started working as an actor at the age of 25, after being trained to be an Olympic swimmer.
14Received the Max Ophüls Prize for best young actor in 1991.


Quotes

#Quote
1[on his title role in Eichmann (2007)] I was born long after the war but I still carry this collective guilt around. It's not as much fun for a German to play a part like this than it would be for, say, Ralph Fiennes. It's a very juicy part, but I couldn't get myself excited to go and play Eichmann. Strangely, I have lots of Jewish friends in LA. My wife is Jewish. They were all excited that I play him, so I wanted to do it for them.
2Leaving [home] is kind of a strange thing - the world opens up but, at the same time, it gets smaller. The more you see of the world, the smaller it seems. After I did the film Stalingrad (1993), I left Germany, and I did a couple of films in France and lived there for about three years, and a couple of films in Italy, and lived there for two years. Then I came over here. The more you get familiar with different countries, the more you think, "Where am I going to live for the rest of my life?" You think, "OK, Germany sucks - don't want to live there; France, no; Italy - the food is nice, but I don't want to live there". In the end, you have nowhere to go anymore.
