An East German character actor best known for his onscreen ability to evoke the banality of raw evil, Devid Striesow took his onscreen bow during the early 2000s. He spent the majority of his first decade as a film actor in pictures produced in his native Germany, such as Rainer Kaufmann's Kalt Ist Der Abendhauch (2000), Anne Wild's My First Miracle (2002), and Hans-Christian Schmid's Lichter (2003), and graduated to one of his first leads with a chilling performance as a seductive Nazi recruiter in Dennis Gansel's Before the Fall. Striesow reprised this sort of role (and his lead billing) as a Nazi police inspector in Stefan Ruzowitzky's arthouse hit The Counterfeiters (2007) and drew critical acclaim for his portrayal of a bigamist in Nicolette Krebitz's The Heart Is a Dark Forest (2007).
