GZSZ star Ulrike Frank gives an outlook on TAG24: “It will be much more complicated”
By Johannes Kohlstedt
Berlin – It’s hard to imagine the Kolle-Kiez without it. Katrin Flemming has been with for two decades now GZSZ experienced and survived all sorts of dramas and intrigues. This is another reason why Ulrike Frank (53) can confidently be called a GZSZ veteran. TAG24 spoke to the actress at the GALA launch party in Berlin. She reveals how her role will continue and why an exit is currently a long way off.
“20 years out of a total of 30 years GZSZ. That’s crazy,” says the 53-year-old happily on the red carpet in SO/ Berlin Das Stue.
Intrigues, kidnapping, sham marriages, burn-out, detention, alcohol problems, the tragic death of Bommel or the incest drama with Frederic Riefflin – Katrin has experienced almost everything in Kolle-Kiez. Actually, nothing should surprise the GZSZ star anymore. Actually…
“When the new stories come, there are always aspects that I didn’t expect. It’s always a bit like Christmas when the future is predicted for the next six months.”

Striking: With Tuner, John, Philip and Emily, as well as Maren or Jonas and Lilly, many characters have been with us for over 15 years. Of course there is a lot of concern that the next series favorite will turn its back on Kolle-Kiez.
However, Ulrike Frank can reassure the GZSZ fans: “There are still stories that want to be told.” Nevertheless, viewers have to do without the tough businesswoman for a few weeks. She will go on tour with her theater group in the fall. “But after that, the continuation at GZSZ is being considered again. It will continue there. Of course I want to continue.”
GZSZ-Aus for Katrin Flemming? Ulrike Frank is not yet thinking about leaving
It seems that the actress of Gute Zeiten, Schlechte Zeiten (Monday to Friday from 7:40 p.m. on RTL or RTL+) will remain in the years to come. “As long as it gives me so much joy, as long as we can come up with such great stories for Katrin, I’m really happy to be there.”
But first Katrin has to get her relationship problems under control again. Dark clouds gather over her and Tobias. Even if the one-night stand with Jo Gerner didn’t mean anything to her, the architect is deeply hurt. In Copenhagen he then makes out strangers.
Ironically, with Maren, Katrin’s best friend, who recently developed feelings for Tobias herself.

“The relationship is not about to end because of the kiss, but because Tobias imagines something else under a relationship. They don’t quite agree there yet, but let’s see. The love is there. It’s more the question: Does it fit das?” reveals the native of Stuttgart and adds. “Love won’t let go of Katrin at first. It’s going to be a lot more complicated than it already is.”
Despite the kiss, Katrin can once again rely on one specific person. “Of course Katrin is incredibly happy that she has Maren as her best friend and that shows all the more now that these wild things have happened in Copenhagen. The two just go so well together, even though they are so different. Maren just gives Katrin support and fun in life.”
It remains to be seen whether the relationship with Tobias can still be saved or whether the next love-off has already been decided. But one thing is clear: “Katrin stays tuned. You can definitely reveal that.”
