Laura Tonke – Actress – Hedi Schneider is Stuck (Hedi Schneider Steckt Fest)
FRED’s Nicolò Comotti meets Laura Tonke, actress in the film Hedi Schneider is Stuck (Hedi Schneider Steckt Fest) by Sonja Heiss from the Forum programme of the 65th Berlin International Film Festival.
Laura Tonke talks with us about preparing for her delicate role, and whether or not her opinion of the character which she portrays in the film has changed over time.
Plot: A model family’s happy life unexpectedly goes off the rails when the carefree Hedi, played by Laura Tonke, suddenly starts having panic attacks. First mental illness and then drug dependency – the happiness that these happy-go-lucky thirty-somethings once took for granted suddenly seems unattainable, and their world fragile and uncertain.
