Der König der Löwen

„Wichtig, dass man sich selbst erkennen kann“

Wenn Schauspielerin Florence Kasumba den Fernseher anschaltet, findet sie dort kaum Identifikationsfiguren für ihre beiden Kinder.

Florence Kasumba ist „Tatort“-Kommissarin und Marvel-Heldin, sie spielte Aida im gleichnamigen Musical und leiht ab dem 17. Juli der Hyäne Shenzi in der computeranimierten Neuverfilmung des Disney-Zeichentrickklassikers „Der König der Löwen“ ihre Stimme. Trotzdem sagt die gebürtige Uganderin, die in Essen aufgewachsen ist: In Deutschland gibt es für Kinder mit dunklerer Hautfarbe nicht genug Identifikationsfiguren in Film und Fernsehen. Wie sie dieses Problem für ihren Sohn und ihre Tochter löst, was sie von Simba und Mufasa gelernt hat und wann ihr nicht nach „Hakuna Matata“ zumute ist, erzählt die 42-jährige Wahlberlinerin im Interview.
