Leon Askin Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

As a nine year-old boy, Leon Askin recited a 17-stanza eulogy for Emperor Franz Josef in front of the city hall in Vienna's 9th District. Little did the son of a salesman know then that he would one day be the student of Max Reinhardt and Louise Dumont, and discover Jura Soyfer while directing the political cabaret "ABC".

#Quote
1My father was an ardent socialist for many years.
2I was put in the Air Corps. I was never educated to serve in the military, but soon my activities in the American Air Corps became very interesting to me.
3Unfortunately I put the opening date on the 5th of December 1941 and on the 7th of December the Japanese bombarded Pearl Harbor. My dream of a theater in Washington D.C. came to a prompt end.
41988 I also received from the city of Vienna the cross of honor for art and science. These titles and the various honors mean a great deal to me, most of all for the reason that they would mean a great deal to my parents too.
5Especially for my father it was a great change. He used to be a socialist and even a member of the socialist party. But then he became an orthodox Jew.
6It was one of the great chances in my life to become a Dumont actor.
7A Dumont actor was considered to be too stilted - the way we Dumont actors used to speak.
8It is a great deal of difference to receive an honorary title or a title in his profession.
9From that moment on I knew my profession in life was and has remained until today an actor's life.
10At the end of my life, I have achieved belated fame and recognition in the city of my birth.
11Directors and producers were afraid of a Dumont actor while at the same time they admired him.
12To be a Dumont actor was considered to be a great honor for an actor, yet it also had its disadvantages.
13The interest of my mother was more in the entertainment field. She loved to go to concerts and to the theatre.
14In the morning we received some very thin coffee. For lunch we had potato soup with a few pieces of meat in it, in the evening we had a very thin meat soup with some potatoes in it.
15We wanted to bring the political situation in Austria on stage. Naturally we could not do that without pointing to Austrian's northern neighbor Germany.
16The journalists in Vienna and Austria and also in Germany call me a legend. I'm a man who lived through difficult times. I'm a man who survived the monster of all times, Adolf Hitler, and I'm still, at my high old age of 93, successful in my profession and that is the pride with which I live and survive.
#Fact
1He received many honors after returning to Vienna, his homeland. In 1988, he was awarded the Austrian Cross of Honor for Science and Art; in 1994, he was presented with the Silver Cross of Honor, and; in 2002, he was honored with the Gold Cross of Honor for service to the City of Vienna. He was granted the honorary title of Professor by Minister Scholten in 1996 and honored with the Austrian Cross of Honor, First Class, for Science and Art in 2002.
2He received Vienna's Gold Medal of Honor, one of the city's most distinguished prizes.
3Returned to Vienna to live in 1994, started to perform cabaret and appeared in various productions with the Volksoper, one of Vienna's finest opera companies.
4He will probably be best remembered as the German general in Hogan's Heroes (1965); who perpetually threatened to send Col. Klink to the eastern front.
