The Viennese “Tatort” investigators Moritz Eisner (Harald Krassnitzer) and Bibi Fellner (Adele Neuhauser) have a new assistant in Meret Schande. She is the successor to assistant Manfred Schimpf (Thomas Stipsits). This is embodied by the Austrian actress Christina Scherrer.
First case four years ago
For the 33-year-old, it is the first major engagement at “Tatort”. The Austrian celebrated her debut on Sunday evening with the case of “The Nurse”. It was a “challenge to join an existing team,” she said earlier in an interview with ARD. “Meret is super fresh, she wants to do her job as well as possible and of course she still makes mistakes,” said Scherrer about her new role.

But the role of Meret Schande is not entirely new. The actress made her debut in 2017 in “Tatort: Schock”. Even then she was part of the Vienna team – as an employee of the Federal Criminal Police Office. “Tatort” drew almost nine million viewers in front of the television four years ago.
Fix im Team
In 2021 she flickered again with the ARD crime thriller on the screens. This time she is an integral part of the team. She only really realized the whole thing at the closing ceremony of the “Tatort” filming last summer. The ORF editor in charge told her there that the next “crime scene” would be followed by another one in autumn. “Of course I was very happy to be part of the team from now on,” said the actress.
Christina Scherrer prepared for the role with the help of an acquaintance, among other things. “I am fortunate that my circle of acquaintances includes a former police officer from the WEGA special unit, who is called to action in our ‘crime scenes’ again and again,” she said. She was able to ask him a few things, which was very exciting and helpful.
