His interview for MHz I saw several years ago. It was very interesting and he talks about his training in dramatic arts in East Germany. East Germany had a way of training which was designed to make sure you would eventually be assigned to act in a way yhat offered something to the community. Inspector Brunetti I have watched for several years on MHz streaming. Crime dramas with the charm of Venice in the backgrounds. Plots and characters brilliantly developed. His knowledge of character acting brings life to many of the conversations in each dramatic scene.
