MAARTEN THOMAS KETELS / GUIDO
My parents gave me this name Maarten Thomas. I was born in a small village where you just can’t hear the sound of the sea and where you bob onto clay after half a meter digging. I graduated from the Herman Teirlinck Institute and have a Master of Dramatic Arts degree. I am also a master carpenter and polyvalent welder. I speak fluent British after a year theatre and voice training at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in Bristol.
Maarten played main roles in the feature film ’Groenten uit Balen’ and also in the television series ’De Rodenburgs’. Guest roles include ’Danni Lowinski’, ’Code 37’, ’Witse’, ’Double life’ and ’Aspe’.
Together with Rebekka Dewit and Freek Vielen, he founded the theater company ’Het huis van afgevaardigden’. In 2012 they won the Sabam Young Theatre prize.
Maarten loves his dogs and his sweetheart Charlotte, but nothing short from playing Guido in Cafard.
