Andreas Voutsinas
Birth: 1931
Al Khartoum, Sudan
Death: Jun. 8, 2010
Attica, Greece

Actor. He moved to the United States during the 1950s and studied at the Actors' Studio in New York. Establishing himself as a reputable acting teacher, he mentored a young Jane Fonda and later coached Anne Bancroft, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. He made his Broadway acting debut in the Tony Award-winning production "J.B." (1958 to 1959), and directed Jane Fonda in the short-lived stage comedy "The Fun Couple" (1962). It was on Bancroft's suggestion that her husband, Mel Brooks, cast Voutsinas in the big screen comedy "The Producers" (1968); this gave him probably his most memorable role as Carmen Ghia, the eccentric companion of Broadway director Roger De Bris (Christopher Hewett). He followed this with performances in the Brooks' pictures "The Twelve Chairs" (1970) and "History of the World: Part I" (1981). During his more than four-decade career, Voutsinas appeared in over two dozen American and international TV programs and films. He was the founder of his own dramatic arts school in France. (bio by: C.S.)
