Thomas Wlaschiha (born 20 June 1973) is a German actor.[1] Internationally, he is known for his roles as Jaqen H'ghar in the second, fifth and sixth seasons[2] of the TV series Game of Thrones, as well as Sebastian Berger in the TV series Crossing Lines.

Biography[edit]

Wlaschiha was born in Dohna, Dresden. When he was 17 years old, shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, he travelled to Agawam, Massachusetts, United States, as an exchange student. He remained there for a year, acting in theater and studying English.[3] He also speaks French, Italian and Russian.

Since 1998, he has played mostly supporting roles in numerous German and international TV and film productions. In his first leading role he portrayed Stephan in the 2000 gay milieu study No One Sleeps.[4] In August 2011, he was cast as the convict and assassin Jaqen H'ghar in season 2 of the HBO fantasy TV series Game of Thrones,[5] and has reprised his role in seasons 5 and 6, starting in 2015. For his performance in Game of Thrones he was nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series by the Screen Actors Guild Awards in 2016. From 2013 to 2015, he starred in the crime series Crossing Lines as Kommissar Sebastian Berger, a German police officer.

On stage, Wlaschiha has performed with the Theater Junge Generation in Dresden from 1996 until 2000, with the Schauspielhaus Zürich in 2002, and with the Schauspiel Frankfurt in 2003. As a voice actor, Wlaschiha is heard in film dubs, audiobooks and commercials. For some of his international work (e.g., Game of Thrones), Wlaschiha dubs himself in German.[1]
