5. Swing Kids: The 1993 film is the first to feature Branagh playing a Nazi, though the already famous and critically acclaimed actor asked to be uncredited. He plays a Gestapo officer who helps to corrupt the main characters in the film.
4. Conspiracy: A 2001 TV movie about the Wannsee conference where plans for the genocide of Jews were solidified. He played Reinhard Heydrich, the chair of the conference and one of the most evil Nazis, and that’s saying something. The role gave Branagh persistent nightmares.

2. The Man Behind Hitler: Branagh narrates this documentary about Goebbels on The American Experience.
1. Valkyrie: The 2008 film, about a failed plot to kill Hitler, featured Branagh as Major-General Henning von Tresckow, one of the plot’s chief organizers.
