Hartmut Volle

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hartmut Volle (born 18 November 1953 in Freudenstadt) is a German actor.


Hartmut Volle was born as one of eight siblings of a Swabian pastor’s family. His brothers are the opera singers Michael Volle and Dietrich Volle. His school career took him to the boarding schools of the Protestant seminaries in Maulbronn and Blaubeuren, where he passed his Abitur in 1972. In 1974 he began to study sociology, which he completed in 1978 with a diploma at the University of Bielefeld. After training as a journeyman carpenter from 1979 to 1981 in Bielefeld, he received private acting training in Berlin from 1981 to 1984.

Since 1984 Volle has been constantly active as an actor: First with permanent engagements at the Stadttheater in Hildesheim (1984-1987), then at the Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern (1987-1990) and at the Saarländisches Staatstheater in Saarbrücken (1990-1997). As a freelance actor, Volle has appeared on various stages since 1997, including the Stadttheater Luzern, the Staatstheater Nürnberg, Schauspiel Frankfurt, Theater Osnabrück, Theater Koblenz and Stadttheater Fürth. He has also been a guest at festivals, including the Burgfestspiele Jagsthausen.

Since 1989, Volle has appeared in numerous television roles. From 2006 to 2019, he was a permanent member of the investigative team of the Saarland Tatort as the head of forensics Horst Jordan.

Hartmut Volle and Bill Mockridge will be the new main actors of the crime TV series Rentnercops. After the death of the two main actors Wolfgang Winkler († 2019) and Tilo Prückner († 2020), Das Erste has decided to continue the series. Filming began in September 2020, and the fifth season with eight episodes is scheduled to air in fall 2021.[1]

Hartmut Volle lives in Frankfurt am Main.
