Biography

As a Jewish boy growing up in 1930s Austria, writer, director and actor Otto Tausig was subject to the era's many hardships. But thanks to the wherewithal of his mother, who managed to land her son a position as a factory worker in England, Tausig was fortunate enough to leave Austria in time to avoid Hitler's takeover of the country. But after World War II, Tausig returned to his native country and began acting in plays in and around Austria and Germany. By the early 1970s, Tausig was performing regularly at theaters in East Berlin, and soon began appearing in TV movies for German television, including 1971's "Chopin-Express", 1973's "Die Biedermänner", and 1975's "Die Insel der Krebse". Tausig continued to work in German television throughout the 1980s and 1990s, appearing several times on the popular German crime-drama, "Tatort", as well as landing a recurring spot on the short-lived family drama "Unsere Hagenbecks". Although Tausig has appeared primarily in German television and movies, he's also acted in French and English films. His most notable English-speaking role came in 2008's "Love Comes Lately", in which he plays an octogenarian writer with a ravenous sexual appetite.
