RIP Hellmut Lange
Lange was known from many television plays and series on ARD and ZDF. Among his best known roles include the TV Leatherstocking four-part series "The Leatherstocking Tales," (1969). He also had many viewers as the host of the quiz series "Do you know movies?" (1971-1981). Unforgettable is his long representation of the scar-faced, professional crises ridden art shooter appearing in the circus series "Somersault" (1968).
With his distinctive deep voice, he dubbed many movie stars and, according to his wife, he has also recorded radio plays very much like the MDR-production "The King David Report" by Stefan Heym. His last TV appearance was as investigative commission head Herwegh Sat.1 in the film "Ferry to Death".
