The actress got a lot from her parents, she says. She will soon be seen in “At the touch – the power of hurt” on ZDFneo.
Munich – Munich actress Lara Mandoki (31, “Erzgebirgskrimi”) finds the biography of her father, the music producer Leslie Mandoki, as an inspiration.
He fled Hungary at the age of 21 and built an impressive career. The now 68-year-old then produced hits for Jennifer Rush, Engelbert and No Angels, for example. “He has very keen senses and takes in everything around him. His creativity and passion are impressive, “said the actress, who can be seen on Tuesday on ZDFneo in the six-part series” Amschlag – The Power of Insult “(9.45pm).
Her Hungarian roots mean a lot to Lara Mandoki. She also had a strong impact on her academic and analytical skills and her mother’s warm manner, she says. She also feels at home in Budapest. In the ZDF “Erzgebirgskrimi” she plays a Hungarian-born detective. Lara Mandoki lives in Munich, where she grew up and studied acting, but can also often be found in Berlin, as she says.
In “Amschlag” Mandoki plays a young professional who has to assert herself in the male world. She herself has experienced hurtful situations at work, especially when it comes to a young woman making a career, she says. In her private life she fortunately grew up in such a way that the sexes are equal and it makes no difference whether you are a man or a woman. “As a woman, you don’t have to appear masculine to be taken seriously,” she says.
In any case, the 31-year-old is happy to have had a lot to do professionally during the Corona crisis. And she is looking forward to soon being able to travel more easily again and “to live my free, European life”. She has an “insane hunger for the world” and enjoys being on the move. “If I feel constricted, I leave.” Dpa
