Mr. Wiesinger, how did you get started writing stories for the new book?

My feelings were great riding a roller coaster. In 20 episodes, I tried to capture stories from 20 years ago, or touch on specific moments from this time. There were some things that really affected me, like the birth of children.

Why did you send my protagonists Tim and Tanya to the front?

Because the book is neither a biography nor a guide. These are stories that relate to me emotionally and some of them I have experienced or told around me. Tim and Tanya are my projection deck to be able to tell all these stories in chronological order and in one piece.

Kai Wiesinger: “Love is what brings all shit together,” Fischer, €256, €18.

In “Lack ist ab” the couple were called Tom and Hanna. There were a lot of you there, right?

Naturally! I can write better about something I really know. Any actor can give more of his role when he already has feelings involved. With this fact of feeling, you can unleash the vibe, even if some of the characters or events are purely fictional.

In your book “Der Lack ist ab” you spoke relentlessly about the illnesses of people over 50. So now you call a spade – that is, not everything about the family is rosy.

This is exactly where the book’s title: “Love Is What Brings All Shit Together” comes from. The book is about this love that allows us to experience all these crazy things. Otherwise, you would have escaped from many situations had it not been for this deep and unconditional love. I recently had a useful experience.

The love of Hanover: Actors Bettina Zimmermann and Kai Weisinger are both from the capital of Lower Saxony and have been officially since 2014.

To be there?

In a conversation, three moms said they always look forward to Monday when the kids go back to school and can do their work in peace. Finally someone said it. This does not mean that they do not love their children endlessly just because they say so. You are allowed to be angry sometimes. Sure, a lot of people think so in a quiet little room.

Partnership between father and mother is also an issue. How has your wife Bettina Zimmerman commented on the chapters about Tim and Tanya?

She hasn’t actually read it yet (laughs). I asked once, but I wanted to finish it first.

I wrote with a lot of humor and irony. Are you like that?

I think it is very important not to lose your lightness and humor when the world seems difficult and sad. Above all, question yourself with a wink in part. I’m someone who doesn’t look for faults in others and I’d be happy to let everyone be who they are. We don’t all have to take the same route. I can laugh at myself as well as at my wife. I like to look at things with humor while questioning myself in society. This helps gauge the importance of some things.

Kay Wiesinger

* 16. April 1966 in Hannover. Even as a schoolboy, he took acting lessons. After attending Waldorf School, he completed community service and studied acting in Munich. In 1992 he made his film debut in Sönke Wortmann’s “Kleine Haie”, followed by roles in “14 Days of Life”, Comedian Harmonists and “Nothing but the Truth”. He won the Bavarian Film Award several times. He has two daughters from his marriage to Chantal de Freitas (45). He has been with fellow actress Bettina Zimmerman (47) since 2014, and the couple have a child together. They also work together, for example in the web series Der Lack ist ab. Wiesinger is also a photographer.

The book is also about what parents do when the kids are out of the house. Are you going to raise bees or are you going to the boats? Or put the kid’s cutlery on the table?

not that. There is still a long way to go before the last child moves in with us. I don’t know yet. But there is this little vision of taking a boat towards the Mediterranean, sailing from one port to another and enjoying the serenity of the evening. I love being on the water, it’s great. As a kid, I really loved surfing at the Maschsee.

There is often no time for home in Hannover

Are you here a lot?

Unfortunately it is rare at the moment. But when I’m in Hanover, I really love being there. I recently played a round of golf with my parents in Ehlershausen. We try to come often, but often a thousand other things get in our way.

Have you talked to your parents about the book? How was it for them at the time?

Yes, of course. So there are a lot of suggestions. She asked them to write down how they handled certain situations. For example, when a daughter’s friend stays at home for the first time. Like I said, it’s a fantasy book full of real feelings.

Not only do you have family ties to the state capital, but there are also professional ties. She recently worked with Franziska Stünkel on “Nahschuss”.

What you have achieved with this movie is really amazing. The film was a worldwide hit and was shown at festivals. I’m so happy for Francesca that she made it. The movie is amazing and very touching. She has appeared as a friend in a small role.

Talk about movies. When will you return to the screen?

For example, I’m currently directing TV ads for Indeed (job search engine, editors) and I’m currently working on the new book. This situation will continue over the coming weeks and months. At the end of September, the film “You Will Hear” will be broadcast on ZDF channel. It’s about deaf parents who refuse to have surgery for their daughter, even though it would give her a chance to be heard.

Kai Wiesinger will read on October 8 at 7.30 pm at Apostelkirche (Gretchenstraße 55). Tickets cost €15 and are available from Leuenhagen & Paris (Lister Meile 39).
