Fritz Wepper, the German film and TV actor best known for his role in “Cabaret” has died. He was 82.

His family told the Hollywood Reporter Wednesday that Wepper died at a hospice facility in Munich on Monday after a long illness that followed the life-threatening sepsis he suffered last year.

In 1972, Wepper appeared alongside Liza Minnelli, Michael York, Helmut Griem and Joel Grey in Bob Fosse’s Oscar-winning musical, “Cabaret.”

He would then turn down Hollywood offers to star in the German crime series “Derrick,” alongside Horst Tappert, and was well known in his home country for his work on “High Society Murder” from 2007 to 2017, and in his last recurring role in “For Heaven’s Sake” from 2002 to 2021.

However, he did return for one stateside project in 2001: the TV flick “Murder on the Orient Express.”

His first major role came at 18 in Bernhard Wicki’s 1959 classic, “The Bridge.”

Wepper is survived by his wife Susanne Kellermann, 49, and their daughter, Filippa, 13, as well as his daughter Sophie, 42, and one granddaughter born in 2018.
