"Ekat" had "weak knees": "Let's Dance" star makes acting debut

Ekaterina Leonova is not easily fooled on the dance floor. But acting as an actress in the RTL series "Der Schiffsarzt" is a completely new experience for the "Let's Dance" star. "Ekat" even worried about embarrassing himself.

Before her acting debut, Ekaterina "Ekat" Leonova was more nervous than ever. This was revealed by the professional dancer known from "Let's Dance" in an interview with RTL, where she celebrated her debut in the new series "Der Schiffsarzt" on Tuesday evening (also available on RTL).

Before her first appearance in front of the camera, she had "weak knees," says Leonova. "I'm incredibly excited because this is a new experience that I've never had before," said the 35-year-old on the sidelines of filming about her debut as an actress. "I have to act. And I got quite a lot of text, and of course it's not that easy."

Forgetting the text is her greatest fear, explains Leonova, giving the reason: "Then the whole production stops and waits for me until I have the text in my head again. That would really be a disgrace."

"Ekat", as the dancer is known by her nickname, plays a dance teacher in the series who swings the dance leg in a scene with the ship's doctor Eric Leonhard. She praised the actor Moritz Otto for his dancing skills - and he praised her for her acting performance, even if she didn't have much text in the scene in question. Leonova posted a sample on Instagram.

Being an actor has been her dream since she was a child, reveals Leonova. But another artistic activity had priority: "I danced, and when you dance professionally, you don't have time for other things." But she always acted in theater at school and at university.

"Der Schiffsarzt" is about Dr. Eric Leonhard boarding a cruise ship in search of his missing wife. It was there that his wife was last seen.
