Comments Nena director Saskia Diesing: “Abbey has a very rare talent when it comes to acting: whatever she does, or says, even the smallest gesture or word, is genuine! She’s able to mix different tones continuously and has a deep inner world, which is visible in almost every glance. “It’s simply very difficult to keep your eyes off her.”
