Wiry and intense German leading man Horst Buchholz appeared in many British and Hollywood films where he was usually cast as a romantic lead. During his youth he frequently appeared on radio and stage; he entered films as a voice-over actor in the dubbing of foreign pictures. After appearing at Berlin's Schiller Theater, he was discovered by director Julien Duvivier, who gave him his debut screen role in Marianne de ma Jeunesse (1955). That same year he appeared in Helmut Kautner's Sky Without Stars, for which he won the Cannes Film Festival Best Actor award. Buchholz broke through as a major star after playing the title role in the internationally successful The Confessions of Felix Krull (based on the 1957 Thomas Mann novel), leading him to Hollywood. Although he had a slight German accent, he made his American debut as a cowboy in The Magnificent Seven (1960). He is married to French actress Myriam Bru.
