In 2008 I was part of a made-for-TV musical drama, “Immer Wirbel um Marie”, which ARD showed again this May. It is available in their Mediathek until 2 Aug 2020. The movie tells the heartwarming story of bookseller Marie who is struggling to make ends meet and finds herself facing off against the owner of a big corporation in her struggle to keep a small business running. You can watch the film here (German only, but you can turn on German subtitles if that helps.)
A road accident,
A new love,
A secluded house.
Meli van Bergen is a successful real estate agent. She lives her life on the fast lane until an accident puts an end to that. Paraplegia, wheelchair, depression. While trying to improve her situation, she meets cheerful therapist Tom who soon shows her that life is still worth living.
They fall in love, marry and movie into an isolated house at a lake. Surrounded by nature, without a phone or internet access, Meli is starting to feel much better. But soon the past catches up to her. Their little paradise starts showing cracks and suddenly, Meli has to fight for her life …
So I’ve landed on the moon. A strange statement, you think? Here you can find out more about it (don’t worry, I haven’t joined a cult): in the 29th episode of the McFly Show.
A new year, a new interview! Well okay, this one was published at the end of last year. I’m hopeful though that you’ll still find it interesting. In the interview (in German) you’ll find out more about my criteria for choosing a role.
Today they showed a rerun of the episode “Jung gefreit” (Married Young) of the show UM HIMMELS WILLEN (For Heaven’s Sake) on WDR. In it I play Christa, a girl whose wedding cannot come (or be cancelled) soon enough, depending on who you ask.
You can watch it here at WDR’s media library.
Those following me on Instagram and/or Facebook have already heard it: The episode of “Kreuzfahrt ins Glück” (“Cruise toward happiness”) will be aired soon. I play Annalena, who is on her honeymoon and faces the prospect of having to reveal a big secret. Beautiful landscapes and dramatic and romantic moments are guaranteed!
You can catch the episode on 26 Dec 2019 at 9.45 pm on ZDF and on the same day on ORF 2 at 9.50 pm.
For those of you who understand German, you can catch me tonight at BB Radio’s midnight talk where I’ll be interviewed by Jens Herrmann. If that’s too late for you (because some of us really do need that good night’s sleep), don’t stress, you can find the recording at their website HERE (in German).
At the start of the year, a new self-defence app arrived at the iOS app store: MIGHTY. It is primarily targeted at women and I helped illustrate the moves. Here you can download it and train with me as I present some of the workouts. There a one week trial to try it out.
Cross-Country is travelling the Balkans. The film in which I portray Isabella, a young woman suffering from Multiple Sclerosis will be part of the programme at the 17th Film Festival Seize the Film in Novi Sad (Serbia). The festival will then travel on to Rijeka (Croatia), Banja Luka (Bosnia and Herzegowina) and Kotor (Montenegro).
For 17 years Seize the Film has been working towards raising awareness for and supporting the cause of people with disabilities. We are very proud to be a part of this festival this year and be able to do our small share internationally.
