It is almost the second anniversary of the death of this little known Dutch actor called Lex van Delden. He was the first ‘professional’ actor that worked for me (17 years ago…).
He was cast in two of my early ventures ‘Phoenix‘ (NBC Universal Sci Fi Channel) and ‘The Reckoning‘ (NBC Universal Sci Fi Channel/Sky Movies etc).
He taught me how to be an auteur…
The son of a same-named famous Dutch composer, Lex was a generous actor and more so; as a human being.
He was an excellent artist and an excellent friend.
Note: Auteur— filmmaker whose individual style and complete control over all elements of production give a film its personal and unique stamp.
