Nikolai Kinski

Nanhoï Nikolai Kinski (born July 30, 1976 in Paris, France) is a film actor, and the only acknowledged son of the prolific actor Klaus Kinski and his third wife, Minhoi Geneviève Loanic. He is the half-brother of actresses Nastassja Kinski and Pola Kinski. Nikolai was born in France, but was raised in California, United States. He currently resides in Berlin, Germany and holds dual citizenship in the United States and France. Nikolai was the only one who attended the funeral of his father Klaus as his ashes were strewn in the Pacific Ocean. Nikolai's first acting role was alongside his father in the 1989 film Kinski Paganini. He was enrolled as a Theatre Major in the UCLA School of Theatre in the mid 1990s, and has since starred in a number of German language films, after learning to speak German fluently in less than two years. More recently, he starred in 2005's Æon Flux alongside Charlize Theron. In 2006, he won the Romy Award as best newcomer.
