"We lose a big folk actor"
Not only his family, friends and fans grieve. "Tilo Prückner has demonstrated his acting skills in many different roles. In recent years he has liked to act as a musty 'pensioner cop', as a somewhat bulky but always wide awake and stubborn police officer. Tilo Prückner has not only shaped and enriched this series, with his distinctive character, he was a real guy in the best sense of the word, "says Volker Herres, program director of First German Television.
And Jörg Schönenborn, ARD Fiction Coordinator, adds: "With him, we lose one of the great folk actors who, with his inimitable tongue-in-cheek understatement, has moved and excited his audience in both major and minor roles."
On the occasion of his death, Das Erste changes his program. On Wednesday (July 8th) the television film "Holger sacht nix" (2011) with Tilo Prückner in the leading role of the bitter farmer Holger will be shown at 8:15 p.m.
