Fritz Wepper (born 17 August 1941, Munich, Germany) is a German film and television actor.


His character Harry Klein, the assistant in Derrick, became a cult figure all over the world. Before playing Klein in Derrick he portrayed the same character on the popular television drama Der Kommissar (1969–1976) from the series' start until 1974 when he was transferred to Derrick. Harry Klein was replaced by his brother Erwin (played by Fritz Wepper's real-life brother Elmar Wepper). He currently plays the role of an corrupt mayor in the long-running TV series Um Himmels Willen.

In 1972 he played Fritz Wendel, a Jew passing as a Christian, in version of Cabaret (1972), opposite Marisa Berenson.


He has been married to Angela Prinzessin von Hohenzollern (née von Morgen) since 1979. They live in Munich. Their daughter is the actress Sophie Wepper (b. 1981).[citation needed]
