From the Cover Story:
As Jason Binn’s magazine notes, “Following her dramatic and emotional performance Diane Kruger was photographed by Max Abadian in New York for DuJour’s annual awards issue. The part Diane plays in director Fatih Akin’s Golden Globe winning film In the Fade is Katja Sekerci, a scrappy wife and mother whose life is upended when her husband and child, both of Turkish descent, are killed by a terrorist bomb. It’s Kruger’s first major starring role. It’s also her first time acting in a German production, which took the 41-year-old back to the country she left as a teenager. The first seeds of the project were sown in 2012 when Kruger approached Akin, the celebrated German director of The Edge of Heaven, at a Cannes Film Festival party, telling him she dreamed of working with him. “I’ve been waiting for a part from Germany,” she explains. “I left a long time ago, 25 years, and I wasn’t an actress when I left. I don’t know anyone in the movie industry there.”
