Actress Eva Haberman is indebted not only to a new man, but also to a new passion for filming a movie.
Instead of standing in front of the camera as usual, the Hamburg native now produces “independent films”, some of which are international actors and sometimes very bizarre. The 45-year-old from the German press agency (“Our Farm in Ireland”) owes her the courage to slip from the role of actress to the role of producer to a happy coincidence.
“When I was filming ‘Trolls World’, which was supposed to be about a woman with trolls, I fell in love with one of the producers.” After finishing filming with her new partner’s production company, the 45 – year – old girl quickly moved to Baden-Baden to lend a hand. “Time was like an internship for me. That’s when I realized how much I could study and how much I enjoyed filmmaking.
The fact that Haberman does not want to limit herself to the creative implementation of her cinematic ideas is evident in her third self-produced film, “Sistil,” which is set to release on October 22, and she has her American colleague Jason Douglas (“The Walking Dead”), trash cult star Greg Cestro. In horror comedy, the actress takes on the role of an honest nurse who follows a killer cyst monster after a failed experiment.
However, she is not afraid to intimidate her normal audience with such strange objects. “I still do regular series like ‘Das Tramshif’, but you have to do something extraordinary to be noticed as a freelance filmmaker,” she said.
