Biography

American character actor Albert Paulsen has been in films from 1961. Paulsen has more often than not been cast as sinister, foreign-accented secret agents, which kept him very busy during the "Bond craze" of the 1960s. A baggy suit and furtively darting eyes were "de rigeur" for such characters as communist spy Zilkov in The Manchurian Candidate. On television, Albert Paulsen played two different Nazi officers on three different episodes of Combat, and was a guest villain on no fewer than five Mission: Impossible installments. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
