Mike Müller Interview: Tell us about your character in ‘The Undertaker’?


Well, Luc Conrad is actually a former cop. He used to work for the homicide department of the police of the canton of Aargau. And then he quit the job because his best friend died in an accident. He did something as a cop he shouldn’t have done. And, uh, Conrad left the police and took over a funeral home which was owned by his father and his father died. So he became an undertaker. At this funeral home, the former girlfriend of his passed father works there as well, Erika, which is kind of a of a mother for Luc Conrad. And then of course you cannot run a funeral home with just two people and we had to hire somebody and a very strange young man with a gothic attitude wanted to do this job. and Erika is very, very skeptical. Every time he has to get a corpse somewhere, he does not really believe what he sees there or what the county doctor tells him that it is a normal death, everything is fine. He’s always a little bit skeptical. Then he starts to grab for information but of course as an undertaker he has, um, different possibilities to talk to the people. Because if somebody died there is a very special situation in a family or among friends. And, um, that’s how he works then.
