Biography


Now

I graduated from the MA Acting course at East15 Acting school (UK) and played a variety of characters in the last year; Cavale from Cowboy Mouth by Sam Shepard, Queen Margaret from Richard III by William Shakespeare, Antoinette from The Imaginary Invalid by Moliere, Varia from the Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov and Laura from the Priory by Michael Wynn.

Where it began.

An International blend started with my first name, Jung Sun, which I received in Seoul City, South Korea. With 21 months I started to discover one of my passions; travelling. I flew from Seoul to Amsterdam, where I received a warm welcome from a Dutch family with two brothers and two sisters. Therefore, my second name, den Hollander. received my first acting,singing and dance lesson at the 'Jeugdtheaterschool Zuid Holland' in Gouda (NL) which is now called 'Jeugdtheaterhuis'.

This youth theatre school had a touring production programme and in my last year at this school I joined the play 'Appeleters' by Els van der Jacht an adaptation of Lucifer (1654) by Joost van den Vondel. Every week we played somewhere in the Netherlands and I became acquainted with the joy and beauty of performing.

Education

In 2012, I graduated from the MA Acting course at East15 Acting school (UK)

After the Youth Theatre school in Gouda, I trained at the full-time Theatre Foundation course in Utrecht, the part-time training programme at Theatre group DOX and the weekly Foundation course for Dance and for Mime at the Theatre school in Amsterdam. In 2004 I was accepted at the Acting school in Utrecht where the physical methodology of practitioner Le Coq dominated in the style of education. After one year I dropped out and wanted to perform. It was then that I was seeking for something else and after six years I found that in the MA Acting course at East15 Acting school in Great Britain. In between, I trained two years in the Theatre group DOX's training and performing programme where I received several dance and acting lessons. During that period I performed in five plays, for example 'Pracht und Prunk' by Rene Geerlings and 'Fasten your seatbelts' by Ramses Graus and Sassan Saghar Yaghmai. Furthermore, I attended at workshops by people from the Dutch theatre and film industry e.g. Rene Geerlings, Pim Verhoeven, Henny Kaan, Tom de Ket, Judith Brokking, Marc van Bree, Marina Wijn en Betty Post(Kemna casting). After the Norma course in 2007 where I learned how to start my own company as an actor, I started to be a self-employed actor that next year.
