Klaus Maria Brandauer (born June 22, 1944) is an Austrian actor, film director, and pedagogue.

Biography

Personal life

Brandauer was born as Klaus Georg Steng in Bad Aussee, Austria. [ [http://www.whoswho.de/templ/te_bio.php?PID=98&RID=1] ] He was the son of Maria Brandauer and Georg Stenj, a civil servant. [ [http://www.filmreference.com/film/0/Klaus-Maria-Brandauer.html Klaus Maria Brandauer Biography (1944-) ] ] He subsequently took his mother's maiden name as part of his stage name, Klaus Maria Brandauer. He was married to Karin Brandauer from 1963 until her death in 1992; they had one son.

Career

Brandauer began acting onstage in 1962. After working in national theatre and television, he made his film debut in 1972. His starring and award-winning role in István Szabó's "Mephisto" (1981) as a self-absorbed actor playing an actor, launched his career, internationally.

He followed this with parts in "Never Say Never Again" (1983), "Out of Africa" (1985, for which he was nominated for an Oscar and won a Golden Globe) and Szabó's "Oberst Redl" (1985) and "Hanussen" (1988). Brandauer was originally cast as Marko Ramius in "The Hunt for Red October". That role eventually went to Oscar winner Sean Connery, who played James Bond to Brandauer's Largo in "Never Say Never Again" (1983). He co-starred with Connery again in "The Russia House", released in 1990.

Brandauer directed his first film in 1989, "Georg Elser - Einer aus Deutschland", with himself in the title role. His other film roles have been in "The Lightship" (1986), "Streets of Gold" (1986),"Burning Secret" (1988), "The Russia House" (1990),"White Fang" (1991), "Becoming Colette" (1992), "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge" (1999) and "Everyman's Feast" (2002).

In August 2006, Brandauer's much-awaited production of "The Threepenny Opera" got a mixed reception. Brandauer had resisted questions about how his production of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's classic musical comedy about the criminal MacHeath would differ from earlier versions, and his production featured Mack the Knife in a three-piece suit and white gloves, stuck to Brecht's text, and avoided any references to contemporary politics or issues.Fact|date=March 2008

Brandauer is fluent in four languages: German, Hungarian, English and French and has acted in each, and is a professor at the Max Reinhardt Seminar in Vienna.
