RIP Vivi Bach

Danish singer, actress and TV presented was found dead at her island home in Ibiza, Spain on April 22, by her husband producer, actor Dietmar Schönherr. She was 73.

She was the daughter of a baker who originally came from Copenhagen, Denmark and became famous for her music, painting, and especially acting. Her breakthrough came in the late 1950s at the side of Hans Joachim Kulenkampff in movies like “So liebt und küsst man in Tirol" (1961) und "Verückt und zugenäht" (1962).

It was because of her blond hair and green eyes that she became known as the "Danish Bardot" and starred in films alongside Peter Alexander and Rex Guildo. In 1965 she met Dietmar Schönherr. For her, he divorced his first wife and married Vivi in 1965. The couple then wrote the concept for "Make a Wish", which was a 24 episode long TV series from 1969 until 1972. It was this TV series that made her famous.
