Theater has start again for me. In January and February we rehearsed an evening of One Acts. We performed these plays on Feburary 19,20,26,27 in Amsterdam. I played Phil in a short play called The Seven Men Of Hanukkah. Written by Sharon Cooper. Story : Stephanie loves animals. Phil hasn’t gone to an audition in a long time and isn’t so sure that he’s at one now. So where the hell is this story going?
As always i have learned a lot and had a lot of fun!
Right now i am rehearsing ALLO ALLO and Dad's army for the Theater. The shows will be performed at the Badhuistheater in Amsterdam. Dates : March 26,27,28,29 and April 3,4,5.
In ALLO ALLO i play Colonel von Strohm. In Dad's army i play Wilson.
Had a great time the last two months rehearsing this play. Don't Dress for Dinner by Marc Camoletti. Fantastic group of friends to work with. You can really trust each other on stage and that's why magic happens. I'm gonna miss performing this show. We did four performances this week. I hope you have seen it. For the people who have seen it, thank you so much for coming! Keep updated on new Downstage Left Amsterdam productions on our Facebook page.

My latest filmmaking project was Pieten Duo Sinterklaas Journaal. I produced it, written it, co-directed it, did the location scouting, casting and props. I also played the main character. The 6 episodes will air on YouTube starring November 18, 2019.
So it's about time to give you all an update.
Recently i played in a COP television series as a Reporter (photo 1)
I played in a reconstruction television programme where i played a real life criminal called Jimmy who was dealing in illegal firearms. (photo 2 and 3)
I played in a new televison series as recovering drugs addict. So pretty much group therapy. (photo 4)
I had a part in another reconstruction tv programme as Robert. Robert is a stoner and his girlfriend has a serious crack addiction. A lot of fighting and swearing involved. (photo 5)
And last but not least i had a part as Sinterklaas helper in a new videoclip by Music Piet Landro - The Magic of Present Evening. (photo 6)
And i also have been cast as George in Don't dress for Dinner. A theaterplay by Marc Camoletti. I will be in this play November 2019 at the Polanentheater, Amsterdam.
Earlier this year i played a father in a short movie by Jasper van Buuren. It's about a daughter who school work and life is suffering from being addicted to Instagram. You can see the movie down below. It is in Dutch.
The last three days we have been performing an evening of One Acts. Almost completely SOLD OUT. People really had a good time. I was in the play 'Alan Alba and the Black Friday Panic. I played Alan. It was a lot of fun to do. Now we have the summer Break and we will come back with new material in the Fall.
About the story : A popular TV show examines mass hysteria by faking disaster situations. When its star presenter is seen shopping moments before reports of a terrorist attack, no one takes him or the situation seriously, leaving him with nothing but panic and well-meaning fools for company.

I have a long history with ALLO ALLO. I started having the part of British Airman in the March 2017 shows.
After that i played Lieutenant Gruber in November 2017. These were both the theaterplay Version of ALLO ALLO.
This year i've played Captain Hans Geering in the TV episodes Pidgeon Post and The Policemen Cometh in Febuary, April and May 2019. A month later June 2019 i played a younger version of Colonel Kurt von Strohm in the Episodes : Saville row to the rescue and The Execution. The ALLO ALLO time was a good one for me. I learned a lot and it was great fun to try on all of this material and loads of different characters.
This week i played a Police officer in the 80's for a new COP TV Series. Lot of fun.
13,14,15,16 of June i will play Colonel von Strohm in NEW episodes of ALLO ALLO.
And 26,27,28 of June i will play in a One Act performance of Alan Alba and the Black Friday Panic furing the Crossed Wires evening of our group Downstage Left. I have the main character part as Alan.
It was about time for a new photoshoot. This time with White Wolf Photographie . Down below one of the end result photos. See the rest of them on the 'Photos' page.
Right now i am playing the same 'Allo 'Allo episodes in the Badhuistheater in Amsterdam as Hans Geering.
Also i played a part as facist shock blogger Donny Gove in A 2016 Love Story. An original farce, by playwright Denis Burke, A 2016 Love Story plunges us straight back into that tumultuous year. Embroiled in a madcap world of fake news, celebrity deaths and political mayhem, a chance meeting between implacable enemies hints that all is not lost and that, perhaps, love really does conquer all..
