Born in South America (Venezuela),
Henri moved to The Netherlands at the age of seven, where he eventually went on to attend the prestigious University of Leiden.
After graduating he started working as an actor and found one of his first acting jobs in the short film “The Painting”, candidate in the Philips Parallel
Lines Campaign (in association with Sir Ridley Scott/Tony Scott’s RSA). In one of his first professional acting roles for TV he got to play alongside famous Dutch puppets “Moffeltje & Piertje” in the popular children’s TV serie Koekeloere.
He was privileged to work with one of Hollywood’s leading stunt coordinators and now also director Chuck Borden on two occasions: “Super Hero Steve!”
and the ambitious “Purgatorium” project. He has also worked with talented and renowned directors and artists, such as: “Spangas” director: Kaj Driessen, “Mad Cow” director: Michael Wright, “Prix-Saint Michel” award winning animator: Aimee de Jongh and “Cannes Lions” winner: Quentin van den Bossche.
With a constant strive for diversity Henri has participated in a wide variety of genres and platforms, including prime time soap (“Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden”), various short-films, animated films (“One Past Two”) and independent (feature) films such as: “Benjamin Wolf”. Last but not least, he played the lead role on stage in a “Martin Scorsese” based play in Amsterdam and was one of the select “Captain Morgan” actors for several years as part of their national promo-campaign.
