Matthias Habich (born 12 January 1940) is a German actor.

Habich was born in Danzig/Gdansk (Germany then, Poland today). He grew up in Hamburg and after graduating from the Alexander-von-Humboldt-Gymnasium Hamburg, joined Harburg-Eimsbüttel University of Music and Drama. He also studied for one semester in 1966 at the Conservatoire de Paris, and took acting classes with Lee Strasberg in the USA. He then played at theaters in Chur, Baden-Baden, Basel, Wuppertal, Zürich und München.

He his first appearances in television are roles in the mini-series "The remarkable life story of Baron Friedrich von Trenck" (1973) (where Alexandra Maria Lara also starred) and "The Christoffel Grimmelshausen adventurous Simplicissimus" (1975), both directed by Fritz Umgelter. His film debut is as icy Habich 1976 Prussian officer Volker Schlondorff's "The coup de grace". Other films worth mentioning are drama "The girls' War" (1977) and the Eichendorff film "Good for Nothing" (1978). Nevertheless Habich remains faithful to the theater and especially in the coming years, only occasionally seen on the big screen, as in Robert van Ackeren's controversial drama "The purity of heart."

But the greatest glory he has acquired through two television movies that have it enshrined in the memory of a broad audience. In Martin Buchhorn film adaptation of Grass's novel Die Rättin (The Rat), he played a man who suspects the Apocalypse, and Klemperer - Ein Leben in Deutschland, he embodied the historic Victor Klemperer, who was promoted posthumously to his diaries from the Third Reich to the best-selling author.

In the 2001 film Enemy at the Gates about Stalingrad, he played the part of General (later Field Marshal) Friedrich Paulus. In the 2004 film Der Untergang, he portrayed dr. Werner Haase.

He currently lives in Paris.
