Season 3 of KUNTERGRAU began filming in September! It was great to work again with the wonderful team and cast and to play Oma Margarethe (Grandma Margaret) again. kuntergrau.net/en/about/
I am working on an adaptation of a theatre piece for German audiences. It's a piece I have admired and have been inspired by for over 25 years and always wanted to perform.
I first have to complete the adaptation idea and then apply for the rights.
I'm also working on my first screenplay. It's based on an adventure I had at the age of 14 and is sort of a road /coming of age film. I've realized that writing a screenplay is not something that comes very easily.
During the summer, I was busy doing various training courses in auditioning, creative writing and creating characters. The work never stops!
FILM: ELEANOR & COLETTE
In May, the international feature film, Eleanor & Colette, starring Hilary Swank and Helena Bonham Carter, opened in Germany.
I had the honor of playing a small role in this film shooting directly with Hilary Swank. It was one of the most memorable shooting experiences I've had. She is a wonderful, kind, caring human being.
TV SERIES: WEST OF LIBERTY
GAMES: Bus Simulator 2018
I had the pleasure to record a character for the new game, Bus Simulator 2018, an exciting, action packed truck driving simulator game.
Created by astragon entertainment GmbH and should be released later in 2018. Thanks to Rain Productions for selecting me for this project!
FILM: FIRST WORLD SOLUTIONS
I just got back from filming the lead role in the fantasy comedy short film, FIRST WORLD SOLUTIONS, directed by Maira Stork. I played the role of President Sarah Washington.
It is a non-politically correct comedy which brings the leaders of all the major continents of the world together with God's representative to talk about what's happening down here on earth and what can be done to fix the problems.
I had a wonderful week with a fantastic cast and crew. The post production should be done by April and then it will start the festival rounds. With colleagues (left to right)
Tatsuya Tagawa, Stephen Moltari, Hanna Bieder and David Wurawa.
The feature, PAWO, is finally being released in German cinemas! Below is the info I just received from the production company.
Pawo starts in German cinemas from April 15th 2018!!! A movie is finally emerging out of an idea. An incredible step for all those involved who believed in this project. After a long festival trip around the world, many great international awards and a lot of work, we finally made it. Pawo is coming to German cinemas and celebrates its premiere on 13.4 in Munich as a nominated film at the Cosmic Cine Festival in the wonderful Mathäser Film Palace.
This is made possible by our distributor Busch Media Group GmbH & Co kg (e.g. Samsara by Ron Fricke) and Camino Film Distribution (U. A Tehran taboo by Ali Soozandeh).
From 15.4 on, Pawo then officially launches in the cinemas (dt + subtitles).
Dates, places and times will be announced.
Until then, our trailer is now available for the first time in German! Share it with your friends and go to the cinema near you! Free Tibet!

2018 is off to a great start!
I'm looking at a few film projects with interesting, varied roles for me. More on that soon.
In the theatre area, I'm still working on a concept for new a one woman show, reading various plays and talking with an English Theatre company about working on a project together this year.
In the music area, my husband and I have started working on a guitar and vocal version of City of Stars and hope to have it done soon as well as some other new songs (possibly some original compositions).
I'm planning to be in Berlin during the Berlinale Film Festival and also to catch up with colleagues I haven't seen in a while.
I hope your new year has started off healthy and on a positive, optimistic note! I'm grateful for all the opportunities that come to me and for all the people who support me. Thank you!
