The credits for Underworld list Atilla Pinke as the actor who played Wolfgang. Who is this character, or who is his actor?

The names surrounding Wolfgang in the credits are mostly vampires, with some humans. The name Atilla is apparently a Turkish variant of the Hungarian name Attila. Since Underworld was filmed in Hungary, I wonder if the actor’s name is misspelled: it’s possible that his name is Attila Pinke. He may be a Hungarian who had a non-speaking role, like Sándor Bolla, who played Rigel, and Judit Kuchta, who played Zsusza.

Underworld credits

Is there a picture of the actor or the character? The Underworld Wiki speculates that the character could actually be Duncan, a vampire who spoke no lines and was never named in the film. The novelization lists his name as Duncan, but perhaps he was intended to be named Wolfgang in the film. The novelization does not mention anyone named Wolfgang.

I can’t find an official script of Underworld, but the transcripts I’ve found make no mention of “Wolfgang” or “Duncan”.

  • @Valorum Hmm, he does kind of resemble Duncan. fish guy, vampire – Molag Bal Jun 30 '16 at 8:36
  • The names listed are not in order of first appearance, so I can’t figure out who Wolfgang is from that. – Molag Bal Jul 1 '16 at 5:48
  • Jázmin Dammak’s name is misspelled on the line just before Wolfgang. I suspect that the guy who Valorum found is the actor. – Molag Bal Jul 4 '16 at 1:46

    He is. I'm in contact with him. He's confirmed what scene he was in but i'm struggling to pinpoint him. – Valorum Jul 4 '16 at 6:49

After a brief twitter conversation with Attila Pinke, I believe I've managed to narrow down his character by a simple process of elimination.

Q. I'm trying to work out who played who. What part did you play and did your character have a name?

AP: I was in the scene in a house, where the main actress is coming down the stairs at a party. The name was Wolfgang

For the record, there are no scenes where Selene (Kate Beckinsale) walks down the staircase in the mansion, I suspect that he's actually referring to Erika (Sophia Myles) who is seen on the staircase at timestamp 00:12:31.

  • You misspelled his name the same way that they did in the credits. Feel like sending that screenshot to Attila, or would that be pestering him, since he hasn’t responded to your last message? That does seem like quite a good match though. – Molag Bal Jul 5 '16 at 13:51
  • @amaranth - He's a business-owner. I suspect he's reasonably busy and in the absence of any reason to prod him further, I shall leave him be. There's zero prospect that they'll change the credits for him, btw. – Valorum Jul 5 '16 at 13:56
