Lotte Verbeek mourns ‘mentor’ Martin Landau

The Dutch actress Lotte Verbeek mourns the death of Hollywood icon Martin Landau. That will report Monday on Instagram.

“He was my mentor,” she writes on the social platform. “When I was four years ago in Los Angeles was, I had, before I knew it, an appointment with Martin Landau. I didn’t know exactly who he was, but a friend said that I definitely had to go.”

The conversation lasted over two hours and went to “about acting, and about life; I had never been so inspired about our profession felt.” Then it was Verbeek member of The Actor’s Studio, where for several courses followed.

“The lessons that Marty gave me too many memorable moments brought to mention. He talked about the uncertainty of life, and that we all just try to live without to know what we are doing. About how vulnerable we are. But also how important confidence is. That another can only trust if you yourself trust.”


The actress thanks Landau for his wisdom and for his surprise, that he with the actors in The Actor’s Studio shared. Landau died Saturday after a short illness at the age of 89. His career omspande a period of sixty years. He appeared in North by Northwest by Alfred Hitchcock, Cleopatra next to Elizabeth Taylor and the movie Ed Wood by Tim Burton. To do this, he has an Oscar.

Lotte Verbeek was the last few years to see in American series such as Outlander, The Blacklist, Agent Carter, and The Fault in our Stars.
