When I was a little girl I wanted to become actress. I loved to play roles which I invented for me and my little friends. Then we would dress up as prince and princesses and invented little plays. Strange was that no girl wanted to play a prince and there were always discussions who would play this disgraceful role. As a princess you were allowed to wear old beautiful clothes from your mum, as a prince we had to look for old trousers (leggings didn't exist) from a brother amongst my friends.
At school we had theatre plays too. Once I had to play a policeman and wasn't happy at all in my old 1800 something uniform. Another time I was a farmer with a pink pig out of fabric. Imagine !
When I was a young girl I sometimes played roles too.
Pictures of the party in 1963
Once I went to Cologne for the carnival and on the evening during a party I spoke German with a terrible French accent so that they all thought I would be French and complimented me how well I spoke German. I have to admit that at the end it was hard to keep my accent.
Now I have reached the vintage age, have played many roles during my life, but never as an actress, it was on the stage of real life. At least I had a dream which didn't come true maybe fortunately !
