Sat.1 has recently announced that the official Hand aufs Herz fan forum will be closed by the end of October. Naturally, Jemma fans have immediately taken action and created a new fan form. It’s mostly in German, but also has an international area. You can find the new forum here:
Kasia is back! Well, at least her voice is. Several accoustic cover versions of popular songs like “My Baby Just Cares for Me” (see below) or “Tears in Heaven”, beautifully sung by Kasia, were posted on YouTube a few days ago. Kasia is accompanied by guitarist Rafael Maldonado, who posted the songs together with a nice photo of Kasia and (probably) himself.
Whether this is only the beginning and we will hear more from Kasia now remains unclear, especially since she didn’t post the videos herself or promote them on any social media sites. Let’s just hope that it doesn’t take another year until there’s the next sign of life. Because if fan reactions to the videos are any indication, your fans really, really miss you, Kasia!
(Thanks JemmaInternational for sharing the videos!)
ICYMI: “Jemma” was part of the 2013 Rosalie & Co. Advent Calendar, which was posted on the Rosalie & Co. main blog in December. Door 22 was dedicated not just to our favourite TV couple, but to the Jemma fandom in general.
Door 22: The Jemma Fandom
You didn’t honestly think that there could be a Rosalie & Co. Advent calendar without “Jemma”, did you?
Even two years after Hand aufs Herz was cancelled, the fandom is still very active and devoted to the lovely couple Jenny and Emma, as well as the actresses who played them.
Lucy is currently playing Sally Bowles in a production of “Cabaret” in Berlin, and she seems to enjoy being back on stage as much as her fans enjoy seeing her there. But it’s not only because of Lucy that a visit to the “Cabaret” is a lot of fun.
Some of you might have wondered why they can’t find Kasia’s Facebook Page anymore and might also have noticed that the link to the page that was posted in the sidebar of this blog is gone. That’s because Kasia’s Facebook Page seems to be gone, too. The page disappeared a few days ago and hasn’t reappeared since.
So far, there has been no explanation as to why the page is gone. In December, Kasia had written on Facebook that she was hurt and disappointed by some of the messages that she had received from so-called “fans” with regard to her charity project and that she was considering deleting her Facebook Page. But the page stayed online, and a few weeks ago, Kasia even started to post messages for her fans again. That’s why, at least to me, it looks rather like a mistake, a technical glitch maybe, than a deliberate decision.
Fortunately, Facebook isn’t the only way for artists to promote their art, and it’s reassuring that Kasia’s Twitter account and her blog are still online. She’s a talented actress and musician, that’s why I hope that she keeps us posted on her projects and that we can see her again soon, either on stage or on TV.
Until then: Stay Jemma!
