So far, the five feet 9 inches (1.75 meters) tall starlet has worked in German films such as Hell (2011), Doktorspiele (2014), Luna (2017), and Issi & Ossi (2020). 

Similarly, she has portrayed roles in TV series such as Under Suspicion (2013), Die Chefin (2014), SOKO 5113 (2016), Tatort (2017), and Dark (2017-ongoing).

Why Lisa Vicari Begged Her Mother To Join Acting?

In a 2018 interview with the SLEEK magazine, Vicari shared that she always wanted to be in movies “ever since she was a kid.” She remembered the 2001’s detective film Emil und die Detektive and remarked the film to be one of her big aspirations to be in the movies.

"They were just so free... I’ve always wanted to be like them, I think,” Lisa said about the film’s characters. 

However, Vicari, with such a big dream, had no other actors in her family who could relate to her passion. That being the case, she begged her mom (at age ten) to allow her to join an acting class so that she could learn to act.

Her persistence finally paid off. She was allowed to take the weekly improvisational theatre course. 

Reporting on Vicari’s rise as a famed actress, a German magazine Süddeutsche Zeitung published an elaborative interview report in 2018. Talking to the magazine, Vicari recalled how her supportive parents and her happy childhood helped to shape her acting aspiration.

I have good access to feelings.....I had a happy childhood. My parents encouraged me to show feelings........... I like crying. I like the state of being melancholy. I guess that’s easy for me.

Thus, we can learn from Vicari’s story that children can grow up as emotionally balanced individuals if their parents not only challenge them but also contemplate their opinions and feelings.
