Tobias Moretti (born Tobias Bloéb on July 11, 1959) is an Austrian actor.
Born in Gries am Brenner, Tyrol, Moretti is the eldest of four brothers. His brothers are named Tomas, Cristoph and Gregor. Since 1997 he has been married to Julia Moretti (née Wilhem), an oboist. They have three children, Antonia (born August 1998), Lenz Valentino (born February 2000) and Rosa Cäcilia (born February 2011). His professional surname comes from his mother, who is Italian.
Moretti studied composition at the Vienna University of Music and Applied Arts, then went to Munich to train for the stage at the renowned Otto-Falckenberg Schule. After graduation he was a permanent member of the Bayrische Staatsschauspiel ensemble (Frank Baumbauer) and played at the Munich Kammerspiele (Dieter Dorn) from 1985 to 1995 where he earned critical praise in a sweeping variety of productions, appearing in Bertolt Brecht's Man is Man, Achternbusch's Der Frosch (The Frog) and playing the lead in Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida.
Moretti appeared in the TV series Inspector Rex from 1994 to 1998 as Richard Moser, the main policeman in the murder unit.
- "Moretti" is his mother's surname.
- He has his own production company.
- Nikolaus Harnoncourt says about Moretti, "Moretti is a person with a great feel for music, whom you can talk to like to a musician. He is married to a musician who presumably talks primarily about music and farming with him. And if a person is so connected to nature like him, music is very close."
- He has a house in Vienna, a 400-year-old alpine residence (farm) in Innsbruck (since 1997) and a wineyard in Tuscany, Italy. Tobias Moretti lives with his family on a farm in Innsbruck. He has a 40 hectare estate, which is a natural habitat for his 25 cows.
- He speaks German, English and Italian. His mother was Italian and his father Austrian.
- Tobias is very active and loves extreme sports, horseriding, motorsport, biking and driving his Porsche; he also enjoys canoeing, skiing, cycling and climbing. He has a German Shepherd named Pico.
- A critic said: "Even the most jealous person has to admit that Moretti's stardom is based on a very solid work that is consecrated in the highest league of theatre."
