Much offers from abroad - The
work of Derek
Derek de Lint has succes in foreign movies.
It's not easy for an actor to
have a full agenda in the Netherlands, so it's tempting

Blue'. And this year he's gonna do a movie called 'Deep
The movie Burning Bridges (made
for television) is American. He plays with well known
actors Meredith Baxter and Nick Mancuso. When he gets the
chance, Derek enjoys acting in a Dutch movie, like he did
in 'Lang leve de koningin', with Monique van de Ven.
"I am an actor and I love acting, but most offers
come from abroad."
