Remembering Fred Delmare

Werner Vorndran was born on April 24, 1922 in Geburtsstadt Sonneberg, Thuringia, Germany. As Fred Delmare he participated in innumerable film and television productions and was adored in the GDR as the king of the secondary roles (character actors), in such classic films as "The Legend of Paul and Paula". Until 2005 he was one of the stars (Grandpa) of the MDR series; “In aller Freundschaft". Delmare began, in early 2006 to show symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and lived in a Leipzig nursing home. He never forgot his domestic dialect. Fred appeared in five Euro-westerns: “The Falcon’s Trail” (1967), “White Wolves” (1969), “Apache”, “Ulzana” both (1973) and “The Long Ride from School” (1982). Delmare died of pneumonia on May 1, 2009 in Leipzig, Danzig Germany. Today we remember Fred Delmare on what would have been his 90th birthday.
