Children become people: actors have to do the same Til Schweiger (59) determine. His youngest daughter with ex-wife Dana, 55, turns 21 on Thursday (October 26). At this age, many young people are just taking their first professional steps – Emma Schweiger On the other hand, he can already look back on a vast body of work. She has already starred in more than ten films.

She first appeared at the young age of three as an extra in Barefoot. Since then, not a year has passed without a film with her participation. At the age of five she played in Keinorhasen, and in 2011 she received her first leading role in Kokovyaakh. But no matter how much she appears in front of the camera next to her famous father, she still doesn’t like being the center of attention.

In the US she enjoyed an anonymous life

At 13, the child star was already considering a career break and uttered phrases such as: “I want to bring back something from my childhood again” and “This constant recognition is not for me.” A year later, she realized her desire to live out of the public eye and moved with her mother Dana Schweiger (55) from Hamburg to her home in the United States.

Emma Schweiger graduated from high school in Malibu and enjoyed life “in complete anonymity,” she told The New York Times. “Picture on Sunday” disclosed. “Nobody in America cared who my father was. I think it was extremely important for me to be able to develop my personality. And just get to know yourself better.” The time spent in America did her good. In Germany, she had to “come to terms with always being addressed as ‘daughter’ and not as ‘me’.”

A topic that excites her greatly: “Of course, I am Til Schweiger’s daughter, but this is only a small part of who I am as a person.” But many people are biased because of their background. “I always liked to play. But when you read information about yourself on the Internet when you were young… it always made me very sad.”

Rare love revelation

While her older sister Luna Schweiger (26) regularly appears at events and often talks about her life on Instagram, Emma Schweiger is mostly private and rarely appears in public. She also rarely posts anything on social networks now. Her publication in May of a photograph showing her getting intimate with a young man was even more surprising.

She also said in English: “Lovers at Coachella.” However, her loved one was not visible – at the festival they were both hiding under a blanket.

Although Emma Schweiger struggles with the spotlight, she loves everything “that has to do with cameras,” such as “videography, music and art.” A few years ago, she said she was also interested in working as a director or editor. “I used to see my dad do it on set.”

She participated in some of his most successful films, such as Honig im Kopf in 2014, which dealt with the theme of dementia, which was later filmed again in an English-language version with Nick Nolte (82). This year, father and daughter were seen together in Manta Manta – Part Two. And even at 21, viewers can’t do without her: the comedy of friendship “The best is yet to come!” opens in German cinemas on December 7, 2023.
