Stephan Kampwirth (born 20 March 1967)[1] is a German theatre and screen actor[2].


Kampwirth graduated from Franz Stock High School in Arnsberg in 1986 and then did his civilian service as an ambulance driver in Munich. After training at the Hamburg drama studio from 1989 until 1992 under the direction of Hildburg Frese, Kampwirth worked at the Schiller Theater in Berlin, the Burgtheater in Vienna, and the Kammerspiele in Munich. He performed under the direction of Leander Haußmann, Dieter Dorn, Georg Ringsgwandl, and Helmut Griem.

His film and television career began in the early 1990s with smaller roles in television series such as Großstadtrevier, Wolffs Revier, and Tatort. He became known to a wider audience with the television miniseries Ein unmöglicher Mann and the film version of Amelie Fried's novel Der Mann von Nebenan, in which he played the role of Lukas Lander. Kampwirth has been part of the Hamburg Kammerspiele ensemble in his adopted home of Hamburg since 2007. From 2013 until 2015, he played Dr. Bode in the television series Lerchenberg. In 2016, he played the role of Walter Richter in the film adaptation of Peter Stamm's Agnes, next to Odine Johne, who portrayed the titular role.[3] Since 2017, Kampwirth has held one of the lead roles in the Netflix science fiction series Dark, that of Peter Doppler.
