Biographical Notes in German: Der 1942 in Berlin geborene Gottfried John begann nach seinen Jugendjahren in Paris mit einer Schauspielausbildung in Berlin. Noch während der Ausbildung gab er am Berliner Schillertheater sein Debüt. Es folgten einige Jahre aktiver und erfolgreicher Bühnenarbeit an den unterschiedlichsten Häusern.

Er traf auf Rainer Werner Fassbinder und wurde unter dessen Regie ein gefragter Darsteller. Geschafft hatte John den Durchbruch schon mit der ersten Zusammenarbeit: ,Acht Stunden sind kein Tag". Später engagierte er sich vor allem in Fassbinders Frankfurter TAT-Truppe, für die er auch als Regisseur arbeitete. Die langjährige Zusammenarbeit mit Fassbinder fruchtete in Filmen wie ,Die Ehe der Maria Braun" (1978), ,Berlin Alexanderplatz" (1979) oder ,Lili Marleen" (1981).

Neben der Arbeit in Fassbinder-Filmen und Theaterproduktionen spielte John u.a. in Verhoevens ,Gutenbach", einigen Fernsehkrimis wie ,Tatort", ,Derrick" oder ,Ein Fall für zwei" und mehr und mehr in internationalen Produktionen, die ihn über die Grenzen Deutschlands hinaus bekannt machten. So auch in einigen erfolgreichen amerikanischen Serien (z.B. ,Space Rangers", 1992).

1995 engagierte ihn Volker Schlöndorff für sein Drama ,Der Unhold" (koproduziert von Renn Produktions). Im selben Jahr noch verkörperte er den ungeliebten Widersacher James Bonds, General Orumov, in ,Golden Eye".

1997 drehte Gottfried John den neuen Doris Dörrie-Film ,Bin ich schön?", in dem er neben Maria Schrader, Iris Berben und Meret Becker zu sehen ist.
