I added a few to Rutger's profile. As he is born in 1944 there is not much to find (yet) at archives because of privacy laws. I added his (four!!! not three) sisters. Three are hidden because of privacy laws here in Europe. Ruth who died very young is open.
I checked out the family that is added to Rutger and completed/added two great-grandparents and a few great-great-grandparents. Rudgers parents were very active at acting. I will add images of his father acting at early telly serries and images of his mum in newspapers here as she acted at stage. They both were acting teachers for a long time too in Amsterdam.
What bothers me - and tried to reach Steven Mix, the profile manager - as he made such a wonderful profile and I do not want to mix the profile up without his permission - is that the early (Dutch) history of Rutgers career is missing.
His cooperation with Paul Verhoeven, who had not a profile yet at WT and I will change that in a little.
Rutger started at The Netherlands as a young man at a television series named "Floris". I think I was around 9 years old as the series started but fell in love with the blond, blue eye hero. He was my prince!
Rutger's big breakthrough in The Netherlands started with the film "Turks Fruit" (Turkish Delight), a film after the book of the Dutch writer Jan Wolkers,a very progressive writer, writing without any censorship about sex in the 60's and 70's.But his attribution as main character at the film Soldaat van Oranje (Soldier of Orange) 1976 made him loved by all of the Dutch.
His cooperation with Paul Verhoeven made Rutger big but I think Rudger made Paul big too.
After that film Rudger was asked for acting abroad.
Now we get to the USA part.
Night all. Need bed. :) Thank you all for your commitment here!
