European Shooting Stars: Luna Wedler

Luna Wedler - Switzerland - European Shooting Stars 2018 

 

Interview / Editing: Martin I. Petrov 

 

 

Congratulations on being a shooting star. How does it feel to be representing your

country and to have this sudden extra exposure? 

 

It is very exciting, really great to be meeting the rest nine stars, they are all beautiful

humans. I feel very connected to all of them and look forward to exciting times ahead. 

 

You did ballet before getting into acting, right? 

 

I was training for six hours a day and wanting to become a professional ballet dancer, but

eventually dropped the idea. You have to be so hard on yourself and the competition is

massive. But it is great when I get a role in which I have to dance now, feel in a much

more advanced and privileged position. Also, still dance in my free time as a hobby. 

 

Blue my mind is very moving, it is a very special and interesting coming of age film.

There aren’t that many Swiss films that claim international success. How did this

opportunity come about? 

 

I was actually initially cast for the supporting role but after reading the script I felt I really

wanted to get to know the main character, she was just so fascinating. We tried it and it

worked in an instant. 

 

You are the youngest shooting star, and yet your first steps are great. You are still at

school in Switzerland. What is your plan or your aspiration for later on? 

 

I have to do a final project, for which I am really excited. Also the idea of theatre sounds

great, but also scary. I think I am more comfortable with the camera than the stage, so far.

My upcoming project is a comedy, a love story and I am also going to take part in a

German mini TV series - just finished shooting here for about two months. It was great to

travel in Belgium, Austria, Denmark and Germany, loved it! 

 

Are you ready to try your luck abroad and do a film in english perhaps? 

 

Of course, I am looking forward to my first english project. And I would also love the idea

of moving here, to Berlin!
