Hans Christian Blech (20 February 1915 – 5 March 1993) was a German film, stage and television character actor who found success in both Germany and Hollywood.

He made his English film debut in the 1951 picture Decision Before Dawn. In this and many of his other Hollywood films, he played a German soldier. He had a prominent role in the 1962 World War 2 blockbuster film, The Longest Day. He served in the Germany Army and fought on the Eastern Front in World War II, where he may have acquired his facial scars.[citation needed] Another possible origin of his scars was a car accident on the Darmstadt Luisenplatz when Blech was 14 years old.[citation needed]
