Johan Marius Nicolaas Heesters (5 December 1903 – 24 December 2011), known professionally as Johannes Heesters, was a Dutch actor of stage, television and film, as well as a vocalist of numerous recordings and performer on the concert stage with a career dating back to the 1920s.
He worked as an actor until his death and was one of the oldest performing entertainers in history, performing shortly before his death at the age of 108.
Heesters was almost exclusively active in the German-speaking world from the mid-1930s and became a film star in Nazi Germany, which later led to controversy in his native country.
He was able to maintain his popularity in Germany in the decades until his death.
