Biography

Dutch actor Martijn Lakemeier scored a major critical success with his debut role as an emotionally-torn young boy in the World War II drama "Winter in Wartime," and has since appeared in several other high-profile Dutch films. Based on the best-selling novel by politician-turned-author Jan Terlouw, "Winter in Wartime" examines the competing loyalties of Michiel, an adventurous boy who worships his larger-than-life, resistance fighter uncle (Yorick van Wageningen), as he tries to keep his German-collaborator father (Raymond Thiry) from discovering a stranded British fighter pilot he's hiding. In the years after his breakthrough role as Michiel Lakemeier portrayed a lovestruck boy on a desperate search to find a missing girl in "Lover or Loser," a gritty drama about the international underground sex trade; and was cast in the critically-acclaimed adaptation of Annejet van der Zijl's novel "Sonny Boy" as Jan, a headstrong teen caught in the middle of his parent's bitter relationship. Since then Lakemeier has appeared in the Dutch coming-of-age movie "Dagen van Gras" as a rebellious teenager grieving the sudden death of his mother; and joined the cast of "De geheimen van Barslet," a supernatural mini-series centered on the strange and mysterious occurrences of a small Dutch village.
