schlager.de: How did the role come about and who do you play?
Karsten Walter: "I was asked by the production and I was really happy. I play Linus. He is a young, sporty kitesurfer, who can also convince one or the other woman with his talent…"
For what beats your heart more: music or acting?
"Acting totally appeals to me. I have a great desire to continue to try myself out as an actor and would like to slip into many more roles. But my first great love was and remains definitely the music."
Are you up for more roles and what would be your absolute dream role?
"Tatort commissioner!! I am a huge Tatort fan. Or something completely different, which has little to do with my person. For example, playing a criminal or a villain – that would also excite me a lot."
What’s next for you musically??
"My debut album will be released on 3. June. But before that, a lot of exciting things will happen. So it remains exciting!"
