Niels Gooijer: Jochem
Niels’ love for theater has been there all his live. This resulted that he started lessons when he was 11, until it grew more serious. At 16 he started an pre-school in Theater (next to his normal school) called ‘De Noorderlingen’. Here he learned to love the professional aspect of theatre and stood regularly on stage with small productions. In 2007 he got accepted at the ‘School of Acting and Musical Theatre’ in Amsterdam. In his fourth year of school he got an internship at a big musical production ‘Soldaat van Oranje’, and ultimately got a job. He played the role of ‘Paul’ and was alternate for the main part. He also graduated with a self-made play, writted by Arnon Grunberg, directed by Gerardjan Rijnders. After this Niels got work in mainly musical theatre. He makes his own music, plays on stage and now makes his film-debut with Reber Dosky. “Creating is one of the most wonderfull aspects of being an artist. I always try to seek new people that inspire me or share the love to translate real-live subjects into art.“
