Karl Dönitz in The Man in the High Castle?

Post by Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 10 Jul 2017 23:24

Could this man, seen in one of the scenes of Season 2 Episode 10 be Großadmiral Karl Dönitz? His uniform is that of a Großadmiral and the actor does look like Dönitz a little bit? FYI he would be 71 years old as the show is set in 1962.

This Series mix real and fake characters.
In this case, I think is not a true character according the full cast.

If a character isn't explicitly named on the show itself, I would be wary about assuming that anyone is supposed to be based on a real historical figure unless the show's producers say otherwise in an interview, since they are clearly willing to include fictional characters in the story in what would have been fairly major roles in a real life situation (e.g., Reichsminister Heusmann, Ambassador Reiss, etc.).
