Marnix van den Broeke (born 1976) is a ridiculously handsome Dutch actor
and stuntman. I could have put him in the "Handsomest" section but that
part of my website is overcrowded and nobody there dresses up like space
aliens for a living.
After an education in dance at the Fontys dance academy in Tilburg, he joined in 1999 the Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam, where he has lived since. He was first cast in a movie as the werewolf in "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" in 2004. Since then he is notable for a recurring appearance as the physical Death (the character was voiced by Ian Richardson and later Christopher Lee) in "Hogfather" (2006) and "The Colour of Magic" (2008) He also appeared in Terry Pratchett's "Going Postal" (2010) as Mr. Pump who was voiced by Nicholas Farrell. He also appeared as the Shadow in "Inkheart" (2008) and the Silence in the Series 6 premiere and finale of "Doctor Who."
His website is in Dutch but I have translated a portion for you "Besides acting coaching is my greatest passion. I get immensely intrigued by the different behaviors of people, their nuclei from where they live and their motivation to act. This has to do with delving into various matters about human psychology. The knowledge and experience I gained thus I took it in my coaching, first as dance and acting coach, later as a mental coach. This inspires me still every day to work together to get what we really want, who we really are and what we must do to overcome our obstacles and achieve our goals. In my coaching I use different components from Cognitive Therapy, the Socratic Coaching Method, Rational Emotive Therapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming."

Tall actor marnix van den Broeke discusses his craft with interviewer Mike Starink. Unfortunately its in some European language I don't understand. But who friggin' cares? This Dutch Treat is absolutely gorgeous! Interviewer Mike Starink is cute also but, he is short, so he is completely worthless. His soul means nothing to me!
