I've always liked Carice van Houten ; India (my eldest) and me used to watch Minous over and over again.
The famous Dutch writer Annie MG Schmidt wrote the story and Carice played the lead part in it when the book finally turned into a movie. On top, I have a friend that looks exactly like her in this movie...same flashy coats, same hair and even same glasses (Carice has a project at the moment for the WWF ; she has travelled to Rwanda to see what's going on over there herself, and she's wearing her black glasses for that...in these pictures my friend Anouk looks exactly like her ...very creepy...India said so too)
So, Carice might become very famous now she has filmed next to Tom Cruise and I am thrilled for her !
She showed us she is a great actress indeed (you have to watch Black Book (Zwartboek) if you can)
