Wilfried Klaus’ acting career began on stage. His first performance at the distinguished Munich Volkstheater was followed by 6 continuous years of steady ensemble theater work at that venue. He was the lead character in many of the famous classical works and later developed a liking plays by Ludwig Thoma. It should not go unmentioned that Wilfried Klaus has always been an artist who enjoys playing comedic roles. Beginning in 1965, countless film and TV roles directed by Rainer Erler, Hans W. Geissendörfer, Franz Seitz, Helmut Dietl, Bernd Fischerauer, Günter Gräwert, Michael Verhoeven, Wolfgang Petersen to name a few, have added to Wilfried Klaus’ impressive body of work. His most well-known role, though, was that of the Chief of Detective Horst Schickl in the ZDF series SoKo 5113. In this very role he stayed true to the audience from 1976 until 2007. In 2008 he got exempted from duty by his own wish and has accepted new challenges since then.
