Thijs Römer is a 38-year-old Dutch actor who published a book entitled "Weemoedt" (melancholy) last year. This novel has been adapted for a TV series by RTL Nederland. Römer plays the lead role. According to Patty Brard, his prominent position is due to his friendship with RTL's director of programming Erland Galjaard. That's what the ex-Luv' singer told on SBS 6's entertainment news program "Shownieuws" two days ago.
"As he was writing the book and before it came out, Erland Galjaard gave the green light to adapt it for television. Thijs Römer even became creative director at RTL Productions. Galjaard asked him to direct, produce and play the lead role. I think it's too much," the diva said.
