Career[edit]

Claus Wilcke started as a stage actor. He passed a complete classic training and graduated.[2] Moreover he was trained for stunts in London and played many sports such as fencing and riding.[3] In 1958 he appeared for the first time on the big screen. After 20 feature films and three guest appearances in Jason King (TV series), he was cast for Percy Stuart.[4][5] Nearly all of his stunts were done by himself because the insurance companies back then didn't hinder him.[6]

Later he played roles in numerous other German TV shows[7] and on very many theatre stages[8] all over Germany. He is also a very sought-after voice-over actor.[9] In 2012 he had a cameo appearance in Iron Sky where he is the white-bearded politician at the international conference who repeatedly laughs at the fictitious President of the United States until he gets angry and throws a shoe at her.
