Klaus Müller (born 11 June 1961 in Bad Hersfeld, Germany)[1] is a German theatre actor, author and illustrator.


After graduating from high school, Müller first studied Catholic theology in Fulda and Munich, and then transferred to the Max Reinhardt Seminar in Vienna (1988-1992)[1] to study acting and directing.

As a drama student he made his debut at the Burgtheater. This was followed by engagements in Coburg, Halle and at the Salzburg Festival.

He has been a member of the Augsburg Theatre Association since 1995.

There he played, among others, in Ibsen’s Peer Gynt and Büchner’s Woyzeck, “Marquis von Posa” in Schiller’s Don Karlos, “Kreon” in Sophocles’ King Oedipus, “Herr Puntila” in Brecht’s Herr Puntila und sein Knecht Matti and “Dorfrichter Adam” in Kleist’s Der zerbrochne Krug

In 2006 he received the theatre prize of the Augsburg Journal for his acting achievements.

In 2011, he portrayed Jakob Fugger in the 2-part documentary for ZDF/arte and WDR called “Die Fugger”. This was produced by Florianfilm GmbH[2].
