The Signal (Netflix): Florian David Fitz (Sven) talks about the scenes in sign language

Actor Florian David Fitz, who plays Sven, spoke about this aspect of this role. “What took the most work was sign language, so that what I said to Yuna Bennett was actually true, he told the German site Netflix Woche. In the end, the main thing is that deaf people understand it.” Expressing yourself in sign language has consequences on physical acting, according to the actor. “You have to know how to move your mouth or not. When we shot the show, it still felt like a secret language. And it was also very interesting to figure out what Sven and Charlie say out loud or what they sign , when Charlie no longer wants to hear about the world and how Sven tries to protect her.”
