A Blast From The Past, But Not My Past
Thomas "Tommi" Ohrner (b.1965) was a German teen idol of the first order in the 1980s. He made a big splash in the title role of the 1979 mini-series Timm Thaler, and went on to do many more TV roles, none of which ever made their way to the United States. He also released some bizzaro pop records and could often be found in the pages of magazines such as Bravo (home of the Bravo Boy!) lounging around in Speedos. I like to think of him as the German Scott Baio.
