Biography

Jürgen Prochnow is a German actor. His most well-known roles internationally have been as the sympathetic submarine captain in Das Boot (1981), Duke Leto Atreides I in Dune (1984), the minor, but impo...rtant role of Kazakh dictator General Ivan Radek in Air Force One and the antagonist Maxwell Dent in Beverly Hills Cop II. Prochnow was born in Berlin and brought up in Düsseldorf, the son of an engineer. He has an elder brother, Dieter. He studied acting at the Folkwang Hochschule in Essen. Thanks to his on-screen intensity and his fluency in English, he has become one of the most successful German actors in Hollywood. He portrayed Arnold Schwarzenegger in a film about the actor's political career in California, entitled See Arnold Run; coincidentally, Prochnow was one of the actors considered for the title role in The Terminator. He also appears as the main antagonist in the Broken Lizard film Beerfest, which contains a submarine scene that references his role in Das Boot. He also played a supporting character in the Wing Commander film, Cmdr. Paul Gerald. In addition, he dubbed Sylvester Stallone's voice in the German version of Rocky and Rocky II. He was facially scarred following a stunt accident during the filming of Dune. One scene called for Prochnow (as Duke Leto) to be strapped to a black stretcher and drugged. During one take, a high-powered bulb positioned above Prochnow exploded due to heat, raining down molten glass. Remarkably, the actor was able to free himself from the stretcher, moments before glass fused itself to the place he had been strapped. During the filming of the dream sequence, he had a special apparatus attached to his face so that green smoke (simulating poison gas) would emerge from his cheek when the Baron (Kenneth McMillan) scratched it. Although thoroughly tested, the smoke gave Prochnow first and second-degree burns on his cheek. This sequence appears on film in the released version. In 1996, he was a member of the jury at the 46th Berlin International Film Festival. Prochnow was married in the 1970s, and had a daughter Johanna, who died in 1987. He married Isabel Goslar in 1982, with whom he has two children: a daughter Mona, and son Roman. They divorced in 1997. He currently divides his time between Los Angeles and Munich. He was involved with Birgit Stein, a German screenwriter and actress. He received American citizenship in 2003.

All biographies Jürgen Prochnow in all languages

English · en

Jürgen Prochnow is a German actor. His most well-known roles internationally have been as the sympathetic submarine captain in Das Boot (1981), Duke Leto Atreides I in Dune (1984), the minor, but important role of Kazakh dictator General Ivan Radek in Air Force One and the antagonist Maxwell Dent in Beverly Hills Cop II. Prochnow was born in Berlin and brought up in Düsseldorf, the son of an engineer. He has an elder brother, Dieter. He studied acting at the Folkwang Hochschule in Essen. Thanks to his on-screen intensity and his fluency in English, he has become one of the most successful German actors in Hollywood. He portrayed Arnold Schwarzenegger in a film about the actor's political career in California, entitled See Arnold Run; coincidentally, Prochnow was one of the actors considered for the title role in The Terminator. He also appears as the main antagonist in the Broken Lizard film Beerfest, which contains a submarine scene that references his role in Das Boot. He also played a supporting character in the Wing Commander film, Cmdr. Paul Gerald. In addition, he dubbed Sylvester Stallone's voice in the German version of Rocky and Rocky II. He was facially scarred following a stunt accident during the filming of Dune. One scene called for Prochnow (as Duke Leto) to be strapped to a black stretcher and drugged. During one take, a high-powered bulb positioned above Prochnow exploded due to heat, raining down molten glass. Remarkably, the actor was able to free himself from the stretcher, moments before glass fused itself to the place he had been strapped. During the filming of the dream sequence, he had a special apparatus attached to his face so that green smoke (simulating poison gas) would emerge from his cheek when the Baron (Kenneth McMillan) scratched it. Although thoroughly tested, the smoke gave Prochnow first and second-degree burns on his cheek. This sequence appears on film in the released version. In 1996, he was a member of the jury at the 46th Berlin International Film Festival. Prochnow was married in the 1970s, and had a daughter Johanna, who died in 1987. He married Isabel Goslar in 1982, with whom he has two children: a daughter Mona, and son Roman. They divorced in 1997. He currently divides his time between Los Angeles and Munich. He was involved with Birgit Stein, a German screenwriter and actress. He received American citizenship in 2003.

Español · es

Jürgen Prochnow (Berlín, 10 de junio de 1941) es un actor alemán. Se dio a conocer internacionalmente por su papel de capitán del submarino alemán en Das Boot (El submarino, 1981), de Wolfgang Petersen, y como el duque Leto Atreides en Dune (1984), de David Lynch. Posteriormente ha intervenido por lo general en papeles de malo, en producciones de Hollywood y de varios países europeos. Prochnow nació en Berlín aunque se crio en Düsseldorf. Su padre era ingeniero y tiene un hermano mayor, llamado Dieter. Estudió interpretación en la Folkwang Hochschule en Essen. Gracias a sus personajes en la gran pantalla y su fluidez en inglés, se ha convertido en uno de los actores alemanes más exitosos de Hollywood. Entre sus películas de mayor éxito, se pueden citar Beverly Hills Cop II (protagonizada por Eddie Murphy), la oscarizada El paciente inglés, Air Force One (con Harrison Ford) y el megaéxito El Código Da Vinci, protagonizado por Tom Hanks. En 2008 participó en una producción española, La conjura de El Escorial, con Julia Ormond y Jordi Mollá, entre otros. Encarnó a Arnold Schwarzenegger en una película sobre la carrera política del actor en California, See Arnold Run. Curiosamente, Prochnow había sido uno de los actores considerados para el papel principal en Terminator, que finalmente recayó en Schwarzenegger. También interpretó a un personaje secundario en la película Wing Commander. Como actor de doblaje, dobló la voz de Sylvester Stallone en la versión alemana de Rocky y Rocky II. Durante el rodaje de Dune sufrió un accidente por la explosión de una lámpara que le dejó cicatrices en la cara. Hay que ser justo, y decir que antes del filme Das Boot y de su etapa internacional, Prochnow ya era conocido en Alemania con trabajos precisamente con el director Wolfgang Petersen, como en Einer von uns beiden de 1974, donde encarnó al estudiante Bernd Ziegenhals, o en La consecuencia —Die Konsequenz— de 1977. Sin duda Junger Prochnow es un actor completo, e "hijo predilecto" de Wolfgang Petersen.

Jürgen Prochnow war Anfang der 1980er Jahre kurzweilig mit der österreichischen Schauspielerin Antonia Reininghaus liiert, mit der er eine Tochter namens Johanna hatte. Die heroinsüchtige Mutter tötete das siebenjährige Kind im November 1987 und machte einen Selbstmordversuch. 2006 starb Reininghaus, ihre Leiche wurde erst zwei Wochen später entdeckt. Von 1982 bis 1997 war Jürgen Prochnow mit Isabel Goslar verheiratet, mit der er die Kinder Roman und Mona hat.
