Biography

August Diehl is a German actor who has occasionally crossed over into Hollywood films. Diehl was born to a costume designer mother and an actor father, Hans Diehl. Diehl got his start on screen in a starring role, as Karl Koch in the Hans-Christian Schmid thriller "23", in 1998. He had a main part in his first cross-cultural film, the multilingual German-American crime-romance "Love the Hard Way", which starred Adrien Brody. After a string of German films, in 2005 Diehl took another role in a multilingual film, as Tiger in the Ellen Page-starring drama "Mouth to Mouth". In 2007, Diehl landed another major part, in the critically-acclaimed crime drama "The Counterfeiters", about counterfeiting in Nazi-era Berlin. Based on a true story, the film won numerous awards, including the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2008. In 2009, Diehl became even more visible to American audiences, through his appearances as Major Hellstrom in Quentin Tarantino's well-publicized, high-profile Nazi farce "Inglourious Basterds", and then as Mike Krause in the 2010 Angelina Jolie-starring action-thriller "Salt", about a double agent Russian spy. Diehl was back in German films that same year, with yet another major part, in the Lars Kraume sci-fi film "The Coming Days".
