Otto Sander (30 June 1941 – 12 September 2013) was a German film, theater, and voice actor.

Biography

Otto Sander a grandi à Peine et à Kassel. À la fin de ses études, il effectue son service militaire comme officier de réserve dans la marine, puis étudie les sciences du théâtre, l'histoire de l'art et la philosophie. En 1965, il fait ses débuts d'acteur. Après son premier film, toujours en 1965, il se rend à Munich afin de devenir acteur à temps plein.

Sa carrière est étroitement liée au Schaubühne de Berlin, où il a joué sous la direction de Peter Stein. Sa voix chaude et forte lui a valu le surnom de The Voice (en anglais). Sander a souvent été employé comme narrateur de documentaires pour la télévision, et a lu de nombreux livres parlés dans les années 1990.

En 1990, il a été membre du jury au 40e Festival international du film de Berlin.

Un de ses meilleurs rôles a été celui de l'ange Cassiel dans Les Ailes du désir de Wim Wenders.

Il fait également du doublage de films. Il prête sa voix entre autres à Dustin Hoffman et à Ian McKellen.

Otto Sander est marié avec l'actrice Monika Hansen et est donc le beau-père de Ben et Meret Becker.

Il est élu membre de l'Académie des arts de Berlin en 1985.

In a small Russian town at the turn of the century, three sisters (Olga, Irina, and Masha) and their brother Andrei live but dream daily of their return to their former home in Moscow, where life is charming and stimulating meaningful. But for now they exist in a malaise of dissatisfaction. Soldiers from the local military post provide them some companionship and society, but nothing can suffice to replace Moscow in their hopes. Andrei marries a provincial girl, Natasha, and begins to settle into a life of much less meaning than he had hoped. Natasha begins to run the family her way. Masha, though married, yearns for the sophisticated life and begins a dalliance with Vershinin, an army officer with a sick and suicidal wife. Even Irina, the freshest, most optimistic of the sisters, begins to waver in her dreams until, finally, tragedy strikes.
