Götz George (born Götz Schulz; 23 July 1938) is a German actor, son of actor couple Berta Drews and Heinrich George. His arguably best-known role is that of Duisburg commissar Horst Schimanski in the TV crime series Tatort. George was born in Berlin into an acting family: his father Heinrich George was a famous film and theater star of his era; his mother Berta Drews a well-known character actress. George is named after his father's favorite character, Götz von Berlichingen. His father was imprisoned in the former Concentration Camp Sachsenhausen by the Soviets and died, exhausted and starving, in 1946, after a botched appendix operation at the Soviet concentration camp Speziallager Nr. 7 Sachsenhausen (de:Speziallager Nr. 7 Sachsenhausen). George grew up in Berlin with his elder brother Jan and his mother. He went to school in Berlin-Lichterfelde and later attended the Lyzeum Alpinum in Zuoz, Switserland. He was married to Loni von Friedl from 1966 to 1976, who gave birth to their daughter Tanja-Nicole in 1967. George made his stage debut in 1950, performing a role in William Saroyan's Mein Herz ist im Hochland. In 1953 he was able to get a small film role next to Romy Schneider
