This GZSZ star could be out too
Shirin’s husband Erik has been in jail since the GZSZ special and has not appeared on the series. So far it has not been shown what Erik’s health is like after the cliff fall or if he might have a desire for revenge against John and Shirin. Fans are sure: actor Patrick Heinrich has left the series. “It’s a shame that your role has already come to an end,” “It’s a shame you’re leaving GZSZ” and “You played the role great,” they commented on an Instagram photo of him.
So far, however, neither the actor nor RTL have commented on a possible exit. It means: GZSZ-Erik could still come back. Because: Shirin will soon receive a call from the past that will change everything.
Do you think it’s stupid that Chris was gone for a few weeks because it’s just part of the show? Or do you think he’s great because his role got a little boring? Would you be happy if GZSZ-Erik came back? Or did it just bother you anyway? Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments on Facebook.
