Piet Römer is Notable.

Petrus and his brother Paulus, identical twins, were born on April 2, 1928, sons of Hendrik Dirk Römer and Maria Catharina Sino. [1]

He dropped out of school when he was fourteen. He worked as a coal merchant and a while later attended drama school, which he said goodbye after three months. But from that moment on he did want to work as an actor and he succeeded. In 1952 he got his first acting role. From 1956 onwards, Römer played in various television series, about twenty films and in more than sixty theater productions.

From 1995 to 2006 he played detective Jurriaan De Cock in the television series Baantjer. In 2007 Römer received the honorary citizenship of Amsterdam and the accompanying badge of merit. He also received the Bronze Medal, because in his role as the Amsterdam detective De Cock he has done so much good to the image of the Amsterdam police.

Between late 2010 and early 2011, Römer was hospitalized for seven weeks with severe pneumonia. He was in a coma for part of this period. On January 17, 2012, Piet Römer died in his sleep at the age of 83. He was buried on January 23, 2012 at the Zorgvlied cemetery in Amsterdam. [1] [2]
