With an evening stroll, German actor Volker Bruch (“Babylon Berlin”) launches a mountain rescue in Piedmont. On Sunday, the authorities confirmed to the German news agency that the Munich citizen, who lives in Berlin, went alone in the area around the northern Italian municipality of Formazza, northwest of Lake Maggiore, on Saturday evening and did not return.
Colleagues from the cast of “2 Win,” which is currently being filmed there, did not find Bruch, 42, at the hotel on Sunday before their planned departure and alerted authorities.

According to their statements, emergency services were able to contact Broch and locate him at an altitude of 2,500 metres. On the phone call, he said in English that he was fine. A helicopter was also used for research.
Bruch is currently filming the drama “2 Win” with his fellow actors, among others Daniel Bruhl (43). The film is directed by Stefano Mordini, and is scheduled for release in 2023. The film revolves around the 1983 World Rally Championship, where the Italian team wants to challenge the German for the title. (dpa)
