Pauline Afaja once had a strange path to a modeling career.

Now the 33-year-old wants to get started on RTL's long-running hit GZSZ.

Munich – Fans of “Good Times, Bad Times” (GZSZ) can be happy.

A new face will soon be seen on the RTL soap.

Although new isn't quite right.

“Flora Kästner”, played by Pauline Afaja (33), has already appeared in previous episodes – and is not a stranger on TV either.

Pauline Afaja will be seen regularly in the RTL soap GZSZ in the future

“I find it exciting to be part of Germany’s most famous series and I’m excited to see what lies ahead!” In an interview with RTL, Afaja exudes excitement about her role.

After several actors recently left GZSZ, the 33-year-old is a breath of fresh air.

She will play “Flora Kästner”, “Flo” for short.

Afaja herself describes the role as “tough, warm and confident”.

“Flo” plays a successful entrepreneur with boxing experience in the series.

At just 25 years old, she runs her own security company and has a lot of responsibility.

“Flo is direct in her communication and carries her packages from the past confidently.

At the same time, her warmth and openness can almost always be felt,” Afaja tells RTL.

Die-hard viewers will know her from before.

“Jonas [played by Felix van Deventer, d.

Red.] and Flo had a short affair that was interrupted by his accident and the resulting paraplegia,” says Afaja.

At GNTM: GZSZ newcomer Pauline Afaja already has TV experience

And maybe something is on the horizon.

Afaja suggests that the two could get back together.

However, she doesn't want to give spoilers: "What I can tell you is that there will be a lot of unexpected situations."

Before Afaja came to “Good Times, Bad Times,” she had already appeared on television.

As a 19-year-old at the time, she took part in the fifth season of “Germany's Next Top Model” (GNTM).

What was strange was how it came about.

Because she was discovered on the show “Wetten,dass...?”.

Moderator Thomas Gottschalk quickly turned a room bet into a casting.

Model mom Heidi Klum, who was a guest on the show, chose Afaja.

In the end she even came sixth at GNTM.
