German actor Vadim Glowna (pictured, left), who will appear in the upcoming ABC telemovies Jack Irish, has died, aged 70.
Glowna was in Australia late last year to play a principal character as a mentor and friend to Guy Pearce’s character.
The telemovies are now the final screen performance of the German character actor whose career stems back to appearing on film as a baby in 1943.
His adult career took shape from 1964 including numerous international telemovies and series including Derrick, Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles, Projekt Aphrodite, Tandem, Faust, 1945, Les Misérables, A Case for Two and Borgia.
He was cast in Jack Irish following German broadcaster ZDF’s involvement in the project.
A dedication card will be added to the show’s credit sequence as a tribute.
