Role in 'Last Track Berlin'

Lilly Krug (21) plays the leading role in the episode of the entrepreneur's daughter Anika Homberg in the TV series 'Letzte Spur Berlin - Vermisste Liebe' (May 26, 9:15 p.m., ZDF). When Anika suddenly disappears from the horse farm shortly before a horse show, Oliver Radek (Hans-Werner Meyer, 59) and his team of investigators go in search of her...

In an interview with spot on news, the actress, who was last seen in the international production 'Plane' (2023) with the British Hollywood star Gerard Butler (53), reveals, among other things, how her own passion for horses is. She also talks about panic attacks and her psychology degree.

You act in German and international productions. How do you choose your roles?

Lilly Krug: It depends less on the productions or the country than on the role. I am interested in projects that tell interesting, moving stories. As an actress I want to touch people and when I accept a role I need to know that I can give that role what it needs.

What particularly appealed to you about your role in 'Letzte Spur Berlin'?

Krug: The story about the emotional level and confusion of the family. Anika feels out of place and longs for emotional connection and security, and unexpectedly finds it not in the right place. Her spirit is strong, but she struggles with doing what is right and knowing who to trust. It shows you that life is not black and white, but that we all live and act in gray areas.

You joined a long-time team as an episode actress. How was the hello on set?

Krug: Everyone was very nice. We introduced ourselves, chatted briefly, and then the work began.

Her role, Anika Homberg, suffers a panic attack in the film. Have you ever experienced anything like this?

Krug: Fortunately, I have never experienced a panic attack myself, but of course I have had anxiety attacks. If you feel insecure or something extremely emotional happens, there is a high risk of becoming involved. It sounds grotesque, but what helps the most is to go through it, face your fear, breathe deeply, and that will calm you down. What doesn't help is trying to suppress the fear. You have to go through it and trust that everything will be okay again, even if you can't imagine it at the moment.

How much do you generally pay attention to relaxation when things get more stressful in your life and what brings you down best?

Krug: I had to learn how to relax first (laughs). Finding a balance in your life is important, especially if you intend to do this job for the rest of your life. I am very curious and love to deal with many different things. However, I have noticed that in the long run I no longer work with as much concentration if I don't take the time to relax. That's why I try to take time for myself in the evening, without any blue light [mobile phone displays, tablets and flat screen TVs, ed.]. For example, I prefer to read or study texts, I sleep much better then and am fit again the next day. I also do sports regularly. It's very good for my spirit to move and exercise physically. In addition, the time with my family and friends is very valuable and the conversations help me a lot to relax.

Speaking of which, how's your psychology degree going?

Krug: Funny you should ask that. I just wrote my last exam. So I would say it's working.

Anika Homberg is a rider. Do you share this hobby?

Krug: I rode a lot as a child. A connection and relationship with a horse is incredibly valuable and beautiful. I wish I had pursued this hobby further, but at the moment I only ride every now and then. But I definitely want to do this more often. It is an indescribable feeling of freedom and lightness. At the moment I'm doing a lot of Jiu Jitsu [Japanese martial arts, ed.] in my spare time and I've started strength training. I always find it very exciting to try and learn something new.

You already have a remarkable filmography. Watch the productions again, maybe for analysis? If so, what changes do you notice?

Pitcher: Thank you. I don't usually watch my productions again. I think it's important to live honestly in the moment in every role, and that changes with every subject and every situation. But I'm in an acting school and acting classes where you get a lot of support and feedback from peers and teachers, and I've found that it helps me more to develop as an artist.

Do you have some kind of lucky charm that is always with you on set?

Krug: I don't have a lucky charm in that sense, but I always have a small book with me in which I write everything possible.

And what souvenir do you take away from your productions?

Krug: I don't take anything as a souvenir, but I often write thank you cards at the end of a production. There is something special about spending such intense time with people and I often feel the need to write something personal and say thank you before we part.

They live in Los Angeles. What has changed for you personally since your 21st birthday?

Pitcher: That's a good question. I thought things would change with the birthday, but somehow nothing has changed. I don't party much anyway, so it really didn't make much of a difference. The only good thing is that if I have to go to the hospital, at least I don't have to go to a children's hospital anymore (laughs).

On June 5th you celebrate your 22nd birthday. How are you going to celebrate?

Krug: This year I don't even know what I'm going to do for my birthday. I think it's going to be a rather leisurely day. I celebrated the 21st well, the 22nd is now rather quiet in a small group.

And what can fans of actress Lilly Krug look forward to next?

Krug: Unfortunately, I can't reveal that just yet, but exciting new news is coming soon.
