Nicholas Schilling is known for his rather eccentric supporting roles. For example, in the 1970s he played pirate Kali in “Pippi in Taka-Tuka-Land”, around the same time that he was in the WDR cult series “Ein Herz und ein Seele” as Otto Graf alongside Ekel Alfred (played by Heinz Schubert) to see.
Role in Loriot films
His most famous performance is that of cabaret artist Vicco von Bülow in several Loriot films. In “Oedipussi”, for example, he showed himself as a lover, in “Pappa ante portas” as a peddler. With Vicco von Bülow, he became a cult of millions of people and is still celebrated today for his appearance.
“Loriot films and the disgusting episode of Alfred’s East Zone are shown on TV every few months,” the actor said two years ago in an interview with “Westphalia newspaper. I still get feedback today – and I even watch the programmes.”
He played his last role in 2006
