Personal Quote:

[on being inspired by Romy Schneider] I dreamed about coming to France and finding a French boyfriend and making French movies. I thought there was a romance to her life, at least when I was younger, that I just so admired and I do love French films and there was a light inside of her that I remember, since I was very young, that just made me dream and it inspired me so much and I fell in love ...

Trivia:

As a teenager, she lived in Harsum (near Hildesheim, Germany) for a while. The street was called Milchberg. Next door lived André Schneider who would later become an actor, too. But even though the two lived next door, they never really met. See more »
