Edgar Selge (*1948 in Brilon) is an actor.

While still an acting student, he made his debut at the Deutsches Theater in Göttingen and after graduating was an ensemble member at the Schillertheater in Berlin. This was followed by almost twenty years at the Munich Kammerspiele and various guest engagements in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Selge is also active as a film and television actor and has been honored for his performances, among others, twice with the Grimme Award (2006, 2007) and the DER FAUST theater award for his role in Unterwerfung (Subjugation), based on the novel of the same name by Michel Houllebecq, at the Deutsches Schauspiel Hamburg. Selge is committed to fighting discrimination against mentally ill people (with BASTA - Alliance for Mentally Ill People).
