Götz Otto

Götz Otto (born 15 October 1967) is a German actor known for his very tall stature. He is 199 cm (6 ft 6 ½ inches) tall and is often characterised by bleached blonde hair in his films.

Otto was born in Dietzenbach in Hesse and his parents ran a bakery in the city.

He is perhaps most famous for his portrayal as Mr. Stamper, the assistant of Elliot Carver (Jonathan Pryce) in the 1997 James Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies. When called in for casting, Götz Otto (Mr. Stamper) was given twenty seconds to introduce himself. Saying, "I am big, I am bad, and I am German", he did it in five. He also had a minor role in the 1993 Steven Spielberg film Schindler's List. Otto later played the role of SS-Sturmbannführer Otto Günsche in the critically acclaimed 2004 film Downfall.

Otto also appeared in the UK film Alien Autopsy (2006).

He has turned his hand to being an occasional race car driver. In 2007, he raced in the German MINI CHALLENGE VIP car at Oschersleben. After a strong performance in the first race, he rolled the car on the second turn of race two. He has been given another opportunity in the MINI CHALLENGE VIP Car at the 2008 German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.
