Jeroen Krabbé

Jeroen Krabbé

Jeroen Krabbé was born in Amsterdam to an artistic family of painters and started his acting career upon graduating from the Amsterdam School for the Arts.  He extended his artistic ambitions in the following years and added directing, play translating, and costume design to his portfolio.
Krabbé's first important opportunity came via another Dutch native, Paul Verhoeven, later a famous Hollywood director, who offered him the role of student leader Gus, murdered by the Nazis, in an anti-war drama, Soldier of Orange (1977). Krabbé met Verhoeven again during the shooting of a psychological thriller, The Fourth Man (1983), where he played a homosexual writer. Their cooperation opened Hollywood’s door to Krabbé and he portrayed numerous distinctive roles, mostly villains. He became a gangster, spy, secret agent, Mafioso, or the villain in a Bond film, The Living Daylights (1987).
Krabbé began directing in late 1990s. His directorial debut, Left Luggage (1998), where he focused on an orthodox Jewish family dealing with the past, was also produced by him, and he portrayed one of the supporting roles opposite Isabella Rossellini. Thy psychological drama is a loose adaptation of Carl Friedman's novel. The second film Krabbé directed is also a book adaptation – The Discovery of Heaven (2001) follows the changes in the Netherlands through ironic references to politics of that time.
