Ten Quick Questions With: Dieter Laser

10 Quick Questions With: Dieter Laser

Intense, intimidating, powerful and unforgettable – when he’s in front of a camera Dieter Laser is all of these things and much more. For nearly 50 years he’s been leaving a trail of memorable performances to be discovered and enjoyed as he continuously moves forward with the acting career he so passionately pursues.

I first discovered him when he appeared on cult Sci-Fi show Lexx, and a few years later he would terrify us all as the brilliantly evil Dr Josef Heiter, creator of The Human Centipede!

I recently had the chance to very briefly make contact with Dieter, and asked him to take part in a new ongoing feature here at Halloween Love.
