Henk Brugge is an actor, known for The Protocol (2013), Have You Seen Lullu? (2013), Squeegeeman's Solitude (2007) and Raam 4 (2005). Born in Purmerend, Province of North-Holland, The Netherlands, to Jan Brugge and Marie Brugge-De Vries. Growing up in a small nowhere-village, he felt an alien to everything surrounding him. Like his parents to start with, of which he thought lived in a 'different galaxy'. His aunt Bets however, sister of his father, was a gifted violin player. And other members of the not-so-direct Brugge family were renowed musicians, painters, artists, film-producers. Being a creative and imaginative youngster, Henk wanted to become an actor. At the tender age of 19, he auditioned for the Amsterdam Drama School. And was subsequently rejected. The Maastricht Drama School and The Guildhall School Of Drama in London were to follow. With the same disappointing results. Kindly, some advice was given: get to know a bit of life first and you might come back later. Henk didn't. He created a living, doing no-go jobs. Enterprising and always on the search 'to become what he is', Henk later on became a certified beautician and certified skin therapist, with an own practice. And then a certified interior designer. He learned how to design a small cupboard with three drawers, already knowing this was not 'it'. The cupboard remained a drawing board design, as he accidentally (or not ...) participated in a 1990 student's film. Then suddenly things became crystal clear and finally Henk was put back on track. From this moment on, and all through the 1990s, Henk developed himself, took private acting lessons, took singing lessons by veteran teacher Threes Orri (*1915 - †1993), performed and slowly but surely developed himself as an actor and a role-play actor in trainings and assessments. As of 1997 he started his own business, determined making a living out of acting. In 2014 he was chosen to play a significant part in a stage-play in Switzerland, written and directed by veteran director Richard Penny. Unfortunately, the project was shelved as funding goals were not reached in time.
In 2017 he is acting in film (shorts) and writing a scenario.
