THE STORY BEHIND

Varick Addler – The next Glamorous German Villain

James Bond 007 – Spectre was yesterday – which German “Bad Guy” holds the world in suspense now?!

One of the longest lasting and most prolific franchises of all-time, James Bond has been entertaining audiences for decades.

“Exciting, new and totally different!” Or is it?

But while some called the movie “exciting, new and totally different,”” it does have some familiar elements. By now the Bond formula is well-known — there should be a good-looking lead with a poker-face, one or two stunning Bond Girls, some fast cars, state-of-the-art gadgets, and in more cases than not an evil-looking German rogue. “Casino Royale” or “Spectre” is no exception.

A catalogue of German villains

The movie’s big baddy Le Chiffre is played by the Danish actor Mads Mikkelson, who has roles in several releases this year. Clemens Schick plays Mikkelson’s right-hand. As such he is an essential element and joins a long list of German villains.

The most despicable Bond villain has to be Goldfinger who was played by the German actor Gert Fröbe. Apparently reluctant to take the role at first, his wife spurred him on. He shot to fame.

In 1977, Roger Moore’s Bond was pitted against Curd Jürgens’ underwater patriarch Karl Stromberg in “The Spy Who Loved Me.” And in the 1983 movie “Never Say Never Again”, Bond’s foe was the German-accented Maximilian Largo, played by Austrian Klaus Maria Brandauer.

Female Germans also got to play evil characters. Karin Dor as Helga Brandt in “You Only Live Twice” died a particularly gruesome death when her infamous boss, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, dropped her into a tank of piranhas. And Ilse Steppat played this latter’s right-hand, Irma Blunt, in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.”

Out of 21 Bond movies, about 10 of the scoundrels have been played by German or Austrian actors. Others have not been played by Germans but have implied German evil nonetheless, such as Dr. Carl Mortner in “A View to a Kill,” a former concentration camp doctor whose real name is revealed to be Hans Glau.

Glamorous villains

These Bond villains are arguably a continuation of the tradition begun by the actor/director Erich von Strohheim, who exploited his role of the hostile German to the point of caricature. For a while after the World War II, German actors in Hollywood could only get roles as Nazis or Wehrmacht soldiers in war films.

This seemed feasible as long as the actors were exiles from the Nazi regime with their own agenda. But gradually, German actors chose not to take on these roles. Nonetheless, they did not seem to mind incarnating German evil as Bond villains — perhaps because 007 movies are associated more with glamour, adventure and excitement than with war and the burden of history.

VARICK ADDLER – AWARD-WINNING “GERMAN” ACTOR COULD FOLLOW IN A LONG TRADITION OF GERMAN BOND FOES.

Germany has a lot of claims to fame. The country has produced innovative scientists, ground-breaking philosophers, brilliant artists and composers, not to mention some of the best beers in the world; and with award-winning actor Varick Addler on the list, they can count captivating screen talent among their many notable attributes.

“As you have so pictorially said: Knowing your type as an actor is essential!” Actors are virtually entrepreneurs, running their own business in this industry. One of the very first rules of entrepreneurship is to find your audience. The success of the business will depend on entrepreneurʼs ability to find a circle of consumers interested in the product.

“And yes, you are right … I am the great supporting cast that brings the film and the main character shine because itʼs more important to have the villain be interesting – itʼs that [villain] role that run away with the movie.”

“Honestly, I like that fantasy action genre. As a child, I discovered my love of books, reading, and stories, devouring the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, James Branch Cabell, Edgar Allan Poe, Michael Moorcock, Ursula K. LeGuin, Gene Wolfe, and G.K. Chesterton.”

“As Actors, as Novelists -as Artists- we are the last of the Shamans, the Keepers of Fantasy, Knights Templar of the Creative! And I think it also helps if you are a Dreamer. I had my dreams all right. And that is something no one can ever take away. They cost nothing, and they can be as real as you like to make them. You own your dreams and they are priceless. I’ve been a lavatory attendant, a theatre usher, a panhandler, and preferably a “Sith Lord”, all for real. That’s the stuff my dreams are made of.”

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Best wishes,

Biography

Varick Addler was born as Adriaen Valéry Burgis in a small town in Germany to Marianne, a secretary at Siemens Health Care, and Herbert, head of department at M.A.N. Maschinenfabrik Augsburg-Nürnberg AG HVAC. He has one brother, Peter.

As a child he discovered his love of books, reading, and stories, devouring the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, James Branch Cabell, Edgar Allan Poe, Michael Moorcock, Ursula K. LeGuin, Gene Wolfe, and G.K. Chesterton.

Varick Addler is an engaging fiction author determined to follow the footsteps of C.S. Lewis as a master of various genres, writing with the heart of a vivacious Imaginer dedicated to entertaining and putting forth the light of the world based on his faith and visions. The world is not black and white and Varick doesn’t see a reason his fictional worlds must be written as such, so he writes multicultural, interracial stories with suspense, love, science fiction and action. He writes a range of genres including poetry, mystery, suspense romance, science fiction and adventure stories.

As “Jessie Elias Garon Presley” he follows his passion as a singer and interprets (performs) the legendary songs of Elvis Aaron Presley in his own way. Not as Elvis impersonator, but in the spirit of the inventor with deep love, understanding and an exceptional voice.

Germany has a lot of claims to fame. The country has produced innovative scientists, ground-breaking philosophers, brilliant artists and composers, not to mention some of the best beers in the world; and with award-winning actor Varick Addler on the list, they can count captivating screen talent among their many notable attributes.

In 2012 Varick Addler took home the Audience Award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role at the Nuremberg Human Rights Film Festival (NIHRFF) for his remarkable performance in the film “Mimikry – Upside Down”. Early on in his career Addler honed his skills at some of the most recognizable acting school across the globe, including the NYFA New York Film Academy in Los Angeles, the William Esper School in New York, the Munich Film Academy and more.

With a plethora of lead roles in film and television projects that span virtually every genre, Addler’s brilliant repertoire of work reveals him as an actor with impressive range, one who easily inhabits his characters and seamlessly brings them to life on screen.

Since his debut in 2006, Addler has gone on to give memorable performances in a pretty impressive list of well-known action-packed films and series including the 2010 Golden Globe nominated film “Red” starring Golden Globe Winner Bruce Willis (“Die Hard”) and Oscar Award winner Helen Mirren (“The Queen”), CBS’s two-time Primetime Emmy Award winning series “CSI: Miami” and the Primetime Emmy nominated crime series “NCIS: Los Angeles” starring Golden Globe nominee Chris O’Donnell (“Batman & Robin”), “Law & Order: LA” and Germany’s long-running cop drama “Tatort”, which has earned over 96 awards including seven Bambi Awards and six Adolf Grimme Awards, one of the most prestigious awards presented in German television.

While Addler’s appeal as an action star is undeniable, his magnetism on-screen is by no means limited to the fast-paced, heart-pumping genre alone.

With a number of riveting performances in both European and U.S. productions, Varick Addler has established an indelible reputation for himself as a captivating and dynamic performer whose boundary pushing talent allows him to portray characters within every genre.

After a long break, award-winning actor, Varick Addler, returned to the Hollywood Circus in 2019 and can be seen in the highly-anticipated action film “Out for Vengeance” with martial arts legends Michel Qissi’s (“Kickboxer”) and Silvio Simac (“Transporter”) directed by Angel Film Award winner Salar Zarza and co-directed by Michael Dudikoff (“American Ninja”).

“Varick is a super-sized version on Bruce Willis,” says the Industry Hollywood. But the fictitious face of Varick in his older days looks more like Sir Sean Connery *smile! This award-winning and versatile actor could follow in a long tradition of charming German bad guys,… he is the great supporting cast that brings the film and the main character shine because it’s more important to have the villain be interesting – it’s that [villain] role, like Heath Ledger or Tom Hardy in the Dark Knight franchise, that run away with the movie.

“I love what I do! Every day, I get the unique opportunity to inspire people with stories to be told and other people’s lives which must be brought into theaters! I love that! And I love to be a dreamer. I had my dreams all right. And that is something no one can ever take away. They cost nothing, and they can be as real as you like to make them. You own your dreams and they are priceless. I’ve been a lavatory attendant, a theatre usher, a panhandler, a superhero, or the next bad guy in a big franchise, all for real. That’s the stuff my dreams are made of.”

“Knowing your type as an actor is essential!”, says Varick and continues: “Actors are virtually entrepreneurs, running their own business in this industry. One of the very first rules of entrepreneurship is to find your audience. The success of the business will depend on entrepreneur’s ability to find a circle of consumers interested in the product.”

“My favorite franchise is James Bond! and the Star Wars Saga and with good luck and the right casting director, I will be in one of the next episodes!” explains Varick.
