German actor Arvid Birnbaum died, Sunday, at the age of 59, after a serious illness at the University Hospital Cologne.

Arved Birnbaum is best known for his roles in series such as “Tatort”, “A case for two” and “Lindenstrasse”. His wife, Sabine Birnbaum, told dpa that the 59-year-old died after a serious illness at the University of Cologne clinic.

In August of this year, Birnbaum can still be seen in the ZDF series “A case for two” as a questionable animal dealer. Lindenstra├če fans may still remember him as Hartung’s neo-Nazi since 1999. In Tatort in Cologne, Birnbaum played Mr. Heinz Obst in several instances.

Before Birnbaum began his career in film and television productions in 1997, he began training as a classical actor and played in the theater. “The culmination of his acting career began with the acquaintance of Dominic Graf, who chose him for many of his works,” Birnbaum’s agency wrote. “Arvid makes every supporting role the main one,” Graf says of the late actor.
