Chris Robertson - That's how he rolls


Diving with sharks and whales? Maybe not! But Chris Robertson also likes the smaller pleasures like ice cream with almonds. At, he tells us more about the things that matter to him and what role Tyrion Lannister, a full beard and unicorns play here!

When did you last laugh heartily and what about?

Chris Robertson:
My friends and I did not shave for one week. We looked at the outcome this morning. All of us had to laugh when we looked at my "beard". I will never have a full beard.

What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?

Chris Robertson:
 I always wanted to dive alongside large sharks or whales. Unfortunately, I have seen a lot of shark movies and now I am absolutely sure that I would never leave the sea again.

Which person has influenced you most?

Chris Robertson: My best friend. No matter what goes wrong: Chin up, straighten your crown, carry on. She is a born fighter, she is always there for others, encourages them and is always reliable.

You have the chance to become the German Federal Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?

Chris Robertson: 
I would step behind the speaker's desk and decline the nomination with thanks. And after that: ice cream. Magnum Almond!

Your life is made into a film: Who would represent you?

Chris Robertson: Peter Hayden Dinklage. If there is a small man in a movie, he is played by him. At least in 80 percent of all cases. What is more, he has a full beard, takes a stand for animal rights and plays Tyrion Lannister in "Game of Thrones".

I would like to be ...

Chris Robertson:
A unicorn.

Which questions would you like answered the most?

Chris Robertson:How did the German Federal Minister Andrea Nahles get into her position? Where do all the hipsters come from? Why did the dairy factory Onken stop the production of FRUFOO?

What I finally want to say...

Chris Robertson: Pants first, then shoes.
