Udo Kier

This German-born leading man and character player has acted successfully in American and European productions, working with a number of important directors including his lifelong friend Rainer Werner Fassbinder. The blond, one-time boyishly handsome Kier made his US feature debut as a neo-Nazi spy in the forgettable "The Salzburg Connection" (1972) and then played title roles in "Andy Warhol's Frankenstein" (1973) and "Blood For Dracula" (1974) both directed by Paul Morrissey. He was cast as the sadistic lover Rene in "The Story of O" (1975) and had a cameo in horror master Dario Argento's "Suspiria" (1976).
