In the current "Tatort: The life after death" Nina Rubin alias Meret Becker must deal with fundamental questions of life. In the interview, the actress reveals whether she believes in a life after death.
Since 2015, the German actress Meret Becker embodies the "crime scene" investigator Nina Rubin. In May 2019, however, she announced her thriller. The 50-year-old faces four more cases until she turns to new projects. Whether she finds it difficult to say goodbye and whether she believes in a life after death, she revealed in an interview with the news agency spot on news.
Meret Becker: Is there a life after death?
In "Tatort: Das Leben nach dem Tod" a basic question of humanity is taken up: is there a life after death? "I'm torn," explains the actress. "My father says no, but I always thought yes."
Becker: "In any case, I believe that nothing disappears and that every human being carries an energy that returns to the room after death, but of course I do not know."
The actress has been studying the subject of dying since childhood, working to lose the fear of death, she says. "And I'm on a good way," says the 50-year-old and laughs.
The secret of the death penalty in the GDR
In "The Afterlife" the death penalty in the GDR plays an important role. Did Meret Becker know about it before the "crime scene"? "No, I did not know that," she replies without hesitation. "I knew that in the GDR many came to harm – as unfortunately in so many other regimes too, but I knew nothing of the death penalty, but this knowledge works after."
In the period from the founding of the GDR in 1949 to the last conviction in 1981, a total of 164 people were executed, as the MDR reported. The convicted were taken to a central execution site where they were killed by guillotine or close-up.
"Tatort" screenwriter Sarah Schnier to the ARD: "In the course of another project, I had dealt with the GDR and its judicial system and learned that there was the death penalty until 1987." That's why she has constructed a story for the murder victim from the little-known circumstance.
Is the farewell to the "crime scene" difficult?
Meret Becker says goodbye to the "crime scene" and wants to devote himself to new projects from 2022 onwards. "I still have four 'crime scenes' in front of me – it's still a bit far away."
Nevertheless, the approaching farewell to a scene in which Rubin and her colleague Robert Karow (Mark Waschke) embrace, was included. "The thoughts of the end will be more," says the actress. She was looking forward to the last day of shooting.
How Nina Rubin from the Berlin "crime scene" will say goodbye, is not yet clear. "I have a wish, how it will say goodbye," reveals the 50-year-old. But whether this will happen in the end, "will show". (Amw)

Til Schweiger's criticism of the new crime scene was quite snappy: He had claimed puppets from the puppet theater of the "Augsburger Puppenkiste" played better. Of course, the criticism also targeted actor Ulrich Tukur. But while Tukur was covered, the head of the Augsburger Puppenkiste spoke up.
