The actor Hans Teuscher has died at the age of 78 years. He had died from cancer in Berlin on Saturday, said his agency Nicolai in Berlin.

Teuscher, who was born in 1937 in Dresden, came from a widely ramified family of actors. After the war he lived temporarily in the Allgäu, where he already came to the theater as a child. After graduating from the Higher School of Theatre Leipzig, he played as a member of inter alia, the Berliner Volksbühne, the Deutsches Theater Berlin and the Dresden State Theatre. He soon came to the film industry and worked in the GDR on dozens of productions.

1988 Teuscher went to West Germany and also played there on numerous stages. In Berlin he was seen among others at the Renaissance Theatre and in various musical productions of the theater of the West - for example, in "My Fair Lady" or "States as in Ancient Rome". He was widely known in West Germany including an episode in TV series Tatort and in numerous films in ARD and ZDF "Wer nicht schweigt, muss sterben".
