Helmut Fischer

Post by Si » Sat Mar 02, 2013 8:52 pm

Was just thinking, Helmut was only ever in 2 eps of Auf Pet. But it felt so much more.

What a wonderful character. Great big grin and Nev's best German friend.

Lex Van Delden as Helmut means a lot to me. I think, as far as characters go, he's up there with the best. :)

To me he was just as much a brit as an Eric' friendly, slight accent, but not as such vindictive either.. he would decline a drink from Bomber rather than get nasty and shout.. a good character..

It still weirds me out a bit seeing how the cast looks now (or recently anyway, Helmut RIP). Watching the show so often has frozen everyone in time for me.

I like to think that picture is of him finally accepting a drink off of Bomber.

I wonder if you know that he's not actually a Jerry, he's DUTCH!

That role name always kind of puzzled me...

Must be because in Germany we really had an actor whose name was Helmut Fischer! But he'd died quite a long time ago, sadly. And a very popular actor he was, too!
