‘Undercover’, is our gradually - particularly exciting - climax, but in the Netherlands the series until the beginning of may on Netflix. “However, there are already a lot of Dutch people that the series have followed on the Belgian television,” says Frank Lammers, who in a masterly way the drug baron Ferry Bouman drop it. “And that is actually quite scratch. Because to us, they have the VRT far stopped, though. At number 51 and 52 of the channel list. I've also been quite a few nice messages about my role in ‘Undercover’, and that happens won't always.”
You played earlier in ‘Bullhead’ and ‘Crimi Clowns’, and yet you were with us still not known. In the Netherlands, in contrast, are you a real star.
Well, yes, a star... I am every day to see in the commercials for the Dutch supermarket chain Jumbo, and you will be soon famous in the Netherlands. I get so much more attention than for the 35 films in which I participated.
“For the amount that I have for those commercials get, I need twenty films do,” told you all in a Dutch newspaper.
That's right, but still I'm not ‘in’, hear. That advertising revenue will give me the freedom to make artistic things to do that are much less deliver. I also have a family, hey.
In ‘Undercover’, you stand with the Flemish people and the Dutch people on the set. What is the big difference?
We are louder and more direct. In most of the Flemish is that finally after four beers. (chuckle)
Made that sometimes it is not problems?
No, but I can imagine that some people there difficult. I remember that I was on the set of something was about to cry because all of this is not opschoot. With us it is much more evident that you do as an actor with interfere, or that you yourself are trying to make the case easy to pull. While they are here in Flanders you are looking at: ‘What does that mean?’ It is all a bit hiërarchischer, you see.
do you Have your opinion about our need to adjust?
No, boy. I have in my life is one big mistake made, namely, that I'm in Amsterdam to study. I simply had to Herman Teirlinck, or to Brussels. That was just silly of me.
what Do you mean?
I am from Mierlo, a municipality just across the border. I am, in terms of mentality far more akin to the Belgians than the Dutch. Actually, they had the border at the rivers, and the provinces of Brabant and Flanders should merge.
