How do you pronounce that again?
I know some actors have strange names, but this is the first one I've seen named after a fraction.
Just an encoding glitch. It says "Daniel Brühl".
Yeah, it looks like a unicode (UTF-16) character ended up in a non-unicode (ASCII) string or something.
Anything involving UTF-16 is pretty much a WTF in its own right.
More specifically, it looks like there was some decomposed Unicode (u and a combining accent) instead of precomposed. Maybe the guy's name was typed on a Mac, where decomposed Unicode is common.
Um... combining characters? UTF-16?
No, just plain vanilla UTF-8 being interpreted as 8859-1. 0xC3 0xBC are the bytes that appear here, encoding the character U+00FC, which is drumroll ü.
