To be or not to be? (Opening line of Hamlet’s soliloquy, William Shakespeare – 1609 / Movie directed by Ernst Lubitsch – 1942)
To be. To find out who you are and what you want.

I think, therefore I am? (Cogito ergo sum – René Descartes)
I act, therefore I believe.

Don’t waste your youth?
Absolutely not. However, it feels like it’s becoming more and more difficult to be in the moment and present in your youth, with visual and virtual distractions increasing, designed to pull our focus away from the real world.

Wet shave or dry shave?
Depends on my mood.

What’s your favourite movie soundtrack?
“The Gravel Road” by James Newton Howard from the movie “The Village”.

What’s your favourite movie quote?
„Every single thing you told me was a lie“ from the movie “Mud”.

What poems do you know by heart?
“Der Panther” by Rainer Maria Rilke.

Young Werther or Romeo Montague?
Definitely Romeo.

Method acting or classical acting?
I am always well prepared.

You feel like Steve McQueen, when you’re driving in your car? (“Moviestar” lyrics by Harpo)
Sometimes. Then I feel the freedom and carelessness of those times.

You think you are the new kind of James Dean? (“Moviestar” lyrics by Harpo)
No, but if so, I would like to be the old kind then.

Who is your favourite Bond girl?
Blofeld’s Persian cat. Just kidding, Camille in “Quantum of Solace” played by Olga Kurylenko.

What’s your favourite pickup line?
Phew… I don’t have one really. This is something I am bad at. But if honesty counts I’ll go with that.

Why is money so sexy?
Is it though? Intelligence, for example, is much sexier.

You can’t always get what you want? (Song by The Rolling Stones)
True. But where would we be in life, if we never had to fight for what we want and learned from the times we hadn’t got it.

If you crash land in a jungle, will you be able to eat your own shoes? (“The Office”, UK TV Show / “The Gold Rush”, movie directed by Charles Chaplin)
I would keep my shoes, try to make friends with all the animals and eat the delicious fruits and veggies nature has to offer.

PlayStation or Xbox?
Neither. I used to play computer games when I was around 15. But my mum successfully convinced me that there were better things to do.

What is your favourite toy?
My Bezzera BZ10 coffee machine.

Who is your best friend?
My sausage dog Romy.

Why do people act differently in groups than they do alone?
Unfortunately, I think many people are scared to show their true self, because they fear being judged for who they really are. It is scary to be vulnerable in front of others. Maybe that’s why.
