Occupation Actor

Georg Thomalla (14 February 1915 – 25 August 1999) was a German actor.

He appeared in a number of German films from 1939 to 1992.

Thomalla was also very well known in Germany as a voice-over artist, dubbing particularly comedians, such as Peter Sellers as Inspector Closeau in the Pink Panther movies, and he also was the standard German dubbing voice of Jack Lemmon from 1955 to 1998. After Thomalla had dubbed Lemmon for more than 40 years, the two met at the 1996 Berlin International Film Festival where Thomalla held an honorific speech for Lemmon.

He was awarded the German Federal Cross of Merit in 1985.
