Heinrich Gotho was an Austrian film actor. He started his acting career at some provincial theatres, until he found an engagement at the Neues Volkstheater in Berlin. The character actor appeared in over 50 films between 1922 and 1933, mostly in smaller roles. He notably appeared in numerous movies by director Fritz Lang, among them Dr. Mabuse the Gambler (1922), Metropolis (1927) and M (1931). Gotho was forced to retire from film acting in 1933, as a Jew he had no possibilites to work any longer in the National Socialist Germany.

Information about his later life remains sparse and controversial, no claims about his birth or death year is undisputed.
