Ilka Bessin from Berlin is probably still known to most as "Cindy aus Marzahn". In the year 2000 Bessin invented the art figure and had a steep career until 2016.
After her TV career as a comedian (she even had her own weekly TV show "Cindy aus Marzahn & die jungen Wilden" for three years) Ilka Bessin published her biography "Abgeschminkt: Das Leben ist schön – Von einfach war nie die Rede - Die Frau, die »Cindy aus Marzahn« war". No one is surprised that her book was also a great success, even a Spiegel bestseller.
