PANDORA at Genrenale 6

5 May 2019 at 2pm, UCI Colosseum (Berlin): At this year’s Genrenale they will show the short film PANDORA in which I play Sherman, member of the Resistance, who is searching for a girl with supernatural powers.

This will be one of the last times this film will be shown on the big screen and it is in fantastic company, so you should definitely check it out. Some of the team and myself will be there as well. You can buy your ticket here.

How to flirt your way into hospital

Having the hots for the son of the head physician at the local hospital can get you premium treatment on the operating table. How that comes about, you can see in the episode “Ein grünes Herz” (A green heart) of the German TV series In aller Freundschaft here on ARD Mediathek.

Sarah at Dr Kleist’s surgery

Prudent pregnant women regularly visit the doctor of their choice – to get routine check-ups when everything is going as planned and, at the very latest, when things start going wrong. While my pregnancy wasn’t real, I nevertheless felt quite safe in the hands of this medical team.

You can watch my visit to the surgery and everything else happening to my character right here (in German).

Beck is Back

On 12th Feb there’ll be a new episode of Beck is back on RTL at 8.15pm and I also make an appearance as a mother fighting for a donor heart to save her child’s life. This story really moved me and got me to think more about the topic. I had never really thought about becoming an organ donor, but after the shoot I decided to get registered. In Germany, that’s a simple process, it’s free and you can order a little card online which you can put in your wallet and that identifies you as a donor.

Of course that’s a highly emotional subject matter and a very personal decision. I like that we have the choice of what will happen with our bodies after we’ve passed away.

Sarah on TV

On Monday (28th Jan), Sat1 will show an episode of “Der Bulle und das Biest” featuring yours truly. It’s crime time: Elias, Rocky and Caro are investigating the murder of a used car salesman. The trail leads to a multitude of illegal businesses, among them a very suspicious real estate company in which I (as Diana Olvi) am selling the most expensive luxury apartments in all of Berlin.

Interview in “Discover Germany”

2019 has just begun and already there’s something to share: Discover Germany interviewed me for their latest issue (January, pages 22-23). Especially those who have been following me for a while might be interested in the part where I talk about what is planned for this year. Exciting!

At the End of the World

I’m very excited to announce that you can soon see me in my very first American production! The movie is called Civil Twilight and as you can see we had the most picturesque setting (that also happened to be insanely COLD), namely Svalbard, in the northern-most settlement of the world. As you can imagine, it was an incredible adventure that’s almost impossible to put into words.

As if that weren’t enough, I also was lucky to act alongside wonderful colleagues like Michael Weaver (Super Troopers) and Tim Griffin (The Men who stare at Goats). A fantastic experience!

What would you do …?

… if your child desperately needed a heart donation, were at the top of the waiting list, but the next donor heart went to the “wrong” child due to a doctor’s mistake? That is a question I had to ask myself while working on “Beck is Back!”, where I play the mother of a gravely ill child. Is the doctor guilty of serious misconduct, giving the heart to a different child? You can decide for yourselves once this episode airs.

I’ve known Bert Tischendorf (Beck) for a couple of years from actor training. Now it has finally been possible for us to work together. Despite the serious topic, it was a very enjoyable experience.

Sarah pregnant?! – For now just on screen

I’m always very happy and excited to meet familiar faces and work with lovely people. This time on the German series “Familie Dr. Kleist” (Family Doctor Kleist) in which Patrick Kalupa is playing my husband. My character is a typical workaholic, always putting way too much on her plate and putting her pregnancy at risk with the resulting stress. A very modern subject matter, I think, which rings a little bit true for my own life: With everything that we are being flooded with – day in, day out – it’s often very difficult to get your priorities right.
