If you’ve ever seen a German film, it’s likely to have a Mr. Til Schweiger starring in it, or maybe it’s just because my German teacher was a groupie of his that means I’ve never really experienced a German film without him (the exception being Lola Rennt). And to those who do not watch German films, Til Schweiger appeared in Inglourious Basterds as Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz. It was whilst watching one of his more recent films, Keinohrhasen (Rabbit Without Ears), that I discovered the names of his four children (who all acted in the film):
Their mother is an American model, which may have influenced some of the choices. The children were born between 1995 and 2002. Til’s full name is Tilman Valentin Schweiger.
