Klaus Kinski (born Klaus Günter Karl Nakszynski, 18 October 1926 – 23 November 1991) was a German actor. He appeared in more than 130 films, and is perhaps best-remembered as a leading role actor in the films of Werner Herzog, including: Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972), Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979), Woyzeck (1979), Fitzcarraldo (1982) and Cobra Verde (1987). "I am your fairy tale. Your dream. Your wishes and desires, and I am your thirst and your hunger and your food and your drink."
