Early life and education

Nikolai was born in 1976 in Paris, France, to German actor Klaus Kinski, and his third wife, Minhoi Genevieve Loanic, a model of 19 when they met, who was born in Vietnam and came with her family to France at the age of seven. The senior Kinski had two older daughters, Pola Kinski and Nastassja Kinski, born in Germany to his first and second wives, respectively. He took his family to California, where Nikolai lived mostly with his mother after his parents divorced in 1979. He was never close to his half-sisters, who lived most of the time in Germany.

Acting career

His father encouraged his interest in acting. Nikolai first had a role at the age of 13 alongside his father in the film Kinski Paganini (1989). In the mid-1990s, he entered the UCLA School of Theatre as a theatre major and graduated from there.

Afterward Kinski moved to Berlin, where he learned to speak German fluently. He has since starred in a number of German language films and TV series, in addition to American works. He starred in AEon Flux (2005) alongside Charlize Theron.

In 2006, he won the Romy Award as best newcomer.
