Bruno Ganz (March 22, 1941 - February 15, 2019) was a Swiss actor from Zurich.

He was one of the most prominent figures in German language film, theatre and television for about fifty years. He has received much critical acclaim and awards since the seventies, and has worked with renowned filmmakers such as Wim Wenders, Werner Herzog, Éric Rohmer, Théo Angelopoulos, Francis Ford Coppola and Ridley Scott, to name a few.

He was perhaps best known to most contemporary audiences for his intense portrayal of Adolf Hitler in Downfall (Der Untergang), whose epic breakdowns have spawned the hugely memetic Hitler Rants Gag Sub videos.
