Personal Quote:

I feel at least as much director as actress. Directors often are more closely committed to their films than actors, who just are hired to do something and then go on to the next project. As a director, one has to fight for one's film, it is one's child after all.


In 2017, she joined the film jury for ShortCutz Amsterdam, an annual film festival promoting short films in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Fellow jury members include Rutger Hauer, Vincent van Ommen, Roel Reiné, Tygo Gernandt and Pieter Kuijpers. See more »
