Gottfried John (August 29, 1942 – September 1, 2014) was a German actor.

He worked a lot with filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder until the latter's death in 1982. His distinctive face and overall gaunt appearance got him typecast as villains quite frequently later on, most famously for international audiences as General Ourumov in the James Bond film GoldenEye.

He passed away from cancer in 2014 at the age of 72.

General Ourumov

He's the head of Russia's Space Division, a position he uses both to further the Janus Syndicate's scheme and to cover his tracks as the head of the investigation on the attack on the Severnaya facility.
