Lesbian actor[edit]

In an interview with the German Taz,[1] Kroymann has said that she always wanted people to know that she’s a lesbian, but also that she can still play any role that she would be able to play if people didn’t know that she was gay, and that it took some time before producers finally accepted the fact that an out lesbian can play straight characters.[2]

According to her website she lives with Claudia Müller, together with whom she gave an interview which appeared in the November 2008 of the German goumet magazine “Der Feinschmecker”.[2] Kroymann supports LGBT rights.

Ich habe mir immer gewünscht, dass die Leute ganz selbstverständlich wissen: Die ist lesbisch, die steht auch dazu, die kann man darauf ansprechen. Gleichzeitig kann sie alles spielen, was sie spielen könnte, wenn es diese Information nicht gäbe. Das brauchte seine Zeit und das brauchte eine Aufgeschlossenheit von Seiten der Produzenten.
