André van Duin found a role in drama series Henry Green ‘very heavy’
Comedian André van Duin plays a role in the new MAX-series The secret diary of Hendrik Groen. It is his first serious, dramatic role,” and that was not easy.
That he told Monday during the autumn presentation of the NPO.
“There are funny situations, but it is certainly not a comedy. I have it quite heavily with them. I was still recalled. Then I heard for the umpteenth time: ‘André, that was very funny, but if we’re going to not do it again’. Away with that mouth, with those eyebrows, I had to constantly say to myself.”
He told me that he at times very uneasy to find themselves back in the series. “I’m sitting to myself to look at it and think: what does André van Duin again?!”
Of Dune plays the role of one of the residents of the retirement home in Amsterdam-North, where the drama unfolds. The secret diary of Hendrik Groen is from Monday 23 October to see on NPO1.
