Josef Kainz


Austrian actor of Hungarian birth. He was highly active in theatres in Austria and Germany from 1873–1910. Revered as one of the greatest actors of the German-speaking theatre, the city of Vienna annually bestowed a theatre award for outstanding acting performance named after him, the Kainz Medal, from 1958 to 1999 (replaced by the Nestroy Award in 2000).

Kainz died of cancer in Vienna on 20 September 1910, aged 52, only a few days after he was appointed director of the Burgtheater.
