Rik Launspach Wikipedia
Ric Launspach (born 19 July 1958, in Arnhem, Gelderland, The Netherlands) is an actor, writer and director. He is married to actress Marjolein Beumer and is the brother-in-law to Famke Janssen and Antoinette Beumer.
Launspach began his career in theatre, he was rejected four times, only the fifth time he was accepted at the theatre academy in Amsterdam. Immediately after graduation, he founded two theatre companies, The Case in 1986 the The Trust in 1988. Between those two years he was on stage almost every day. He played the lead roles in many films and TV shows and directed several pieces.
In the late 1990s, he broke his career from theatre, along with his wife Marjolein Beumer, to devote entirely to writing. In 2006 they did their first short film together, a TV series and a feature film.
In 2007, Launspach decided to start writing books, and in 2009 he released his debut novel 1953, referring to the year in which the Dutch dikes broke resulting in the big flood. The book was filmed, and renamed De Storm.
In September 2011, his second novel, Man Meisje Dood, was released.His (1987)
