Actor Jörg Hartmann has distanced himself from his extreme role of the “crime scene” investigator Faber and does not want to be confused with it.
“This figure is so extreme. I’ve even heard my colleagues from the film ask, ‘Tell me, can you work with Hartmann at all? Is he like Faber?” “Said the 51-year-old to the German press agency .
He then has to put that right: “Hey, friends, I’m an actor. I just play it.”
Sometimes he is worried that he will not be able to get out of the role, says Hartmann. “But what should you do, that is probably the lot of those characters who are extreme and thus memorize themselves,” he said.
As long as this fear does not get stronger than before, he wants to continue to embody the investigator in the popular ARD crime series, he emphasized. “I only think about quitting when at some point I get the feeling that everything has been told.”
The second part of the double episode for the 50th anniversary of the crime series will run on Sunday.
