The actor Richard Georg was born as Georg Joseph in Goglau. He began his professional career as a clerk but his wish to become an actor was bigger than to remain in a secure job.
He made his stage debut at the Sommertheater in Liegnitz in 1885 and in the next years followed numerous engagements in other smaller cities before he came to Berlin where he appeared among others at the Residenztheater.
Tours led him through whole Germany and finally to the USA where he acted in many states.
After his return to Germany Richard Georg became an established stage actor in Berlin where he remained active for many years.
