The former "Good Times, Bad Times" actress Saskia Valencia (58) and her ex-partner and colleague Thorsten Nindel (58) are still very close today. From 2011 to 2016 she was in a relationship with the actor, who will remain "always a madly loved one" for her. She said that in an interview with the magazine "Bunte". They are no longer a couple today, but it would "still be a relationship somehow": the deepest friendship that you could imagine.
When she gets to know other men, they get big question marks in her eyes, because: "I don't exist without him." Nindel will always remain in her life. However, the relationship with another ex-boyfriend doesn't put Valencia in such a good light. "The relationship with Helmut Zierl cost me a lot of energy and time - and I really could have given it to myself," says the actress.
Zierl (68) and Valencia were a couple for around ten years and separated in 2011. "I came out of marriage with Nicolas and wanted to do everything right in the new relationship. If I had had more foresight then - I would have had this relationship much earlier ended," said the TV star. In 1987 she married the Colombian civil engineer Nicolás Valencia, whose surname she kept even after their separation in 1999.
But will she soon be breaking new ground in love? She is thinking about getting married to another woman: "I have a girlfriend - a woman Dr. Dr. - who really wants to marry me." She doesn't necessarily want a lesbian relationship herself, but in between she's thought: "Why not?" "I just haven't married her yet because her financial circumstances are a bit too opaque for me. I don't want to fall for that again," says the actress. In the end, however, she has to be honest: "I really like men."
When asked if she would like someone to love in later years, Valencia explains: "No, something has to happen before that." "Something has to go on" before the time comes for her to be lovingly hugged.
She couldn't be with a man who didn't arouse her eroticism: "I'd rather have a lot of tenderness with my grandchildren." She doesn't lack applicants either, but she does have certain requirements. Who would her type be? "Richard David Precht, our well-known philosopher. I think he looks pretty good," says Valencia. However, she knew that in her living room she would think about him: "Oh my God, boy, you think you're really horny too, don't you?" Any erotic appeal would be lost. Men who are so full of themselves find them unsexy.
