Franka Potente on the Importance of Hearing Health
New Generation Miami Hearing Center has previously written about the “Hear the World” Campaign whose goal is increasing awareness about hearing loss and hearing damage. The campaign is using the help of “Celebrity Ambassadors” who help spread the word. This week Franka Potente’s involvement with the campaign will be addressed.
Franka Potente is a 36 year old German actress who became famous for her role as Barbara Buckley in the movie Blow, alongside Johnny Depp. Ms. Potente has since starred in many Hollywood films including “The Bourne Identity” where she played the female lead and worked with Matt Damon.
Franka Potente’s understanding of the importance of hearing health, comes from her upbringing. As Ms. Potente explained, “My mother works at an ear, nose and throat specialist’s practice. In other words, I was familiar with the issue from an early age. And as an actress I also know of course how immensely important the sense of hearing is.” She goes on to say, “hearing is not just hearing a sound, it is more. There is almost something three-dimensional about it. Hearing is quite simply an important sensory perception.”
