People of Germany: Bela B. – real name Dirk Felsenheimer – born 1962 in Berlin-Spandau is a musician, singer, and songwriter, best known for being part of Die Ärzte. He also is an actor and has done voice-overs for film and television. He has a twin sister; his parents separated when he was 5. He graduated from the Carlo-Schmid-Oberschule and joined the police force of all things, partly because of the influence of his police officer uncle. Shortly before joining, he became a punk, which seemed at odds with the conformity required at work. Despite his reservations, he began training, as he did not want his mother to worry, but quit the force soon after as he felt that he didn’t belong there. He then worked in a warehouse before beginning a 3-year apprenticeship as a window-dresser for the department store Hertie. He joined a band and his career took off soon after. His stage name was taken from Dracula actor Bela Lugosi, whom he has admired since childhood. He lives with his girlfriend and their son in Hamburg.
