Live and act

Asper had played theater in Berlin since the 1910s and was a member of the Volksbühne ensemble for a long time. There he was seen in the pieces Vasantasena (based on Lion Feuchtwanger, 1924), The Sunken Glocke (based on Gerhart Hauptmann, 1924/25), The Fiesko Conspiracy in Genoa (Friedrich Schiller, 1925) and Der dütsche Michel (Fritz Stavenhagen , 1926).

From 1931 to 1942 Asper belonged to the Rose Theater, where he was a. in Ein Volksfeind (after Henrik Ibsen, 1933, leading role as Dr. Thomas Stockmann), The Pastor of Kirchfeld (Ludwig Anzengruber, 1938), Johannisfeuer (Hermann Sudermann, 1940), Scampolo (Dario Niccodemi, 1940) and The Well-Cut Corner (Hermann Sudermann, 1941). Towards the end of the Second World War, Asper also worked at the Theater der Jugend.

After the Second World War, he managed to emigrate to Switzerland, where Asper had worked at the St. Gallen City Theater until his death and appeared in Franz Lehár's The Land of Smiles in 1948 and in The Forger in 1949 .

Asper's excursions in front of the camera were sparse and his sound film roles were mostly quite small. Especially in the late phase of the Second World War he was involved in the film, but with his occasional brief appearances in batches, he hardly left any traces on a number of tendentious or even propagandistic subjects. Ferdinand Asper died in mid-April 1950 in his new Swiss adopted home.
