TV series in development

Ilse is writing on the new drama series 'Nood' from Pupkin Film with director Joram Lürsen.


I am a Dutch scriptwriter and actress bassed in Amsterdam. In 2016 I got my master in scriptwriting at the Binger Writerslab. There I wrote my first feature filmscript; Find that dumb little bitch and throw her into a river which premiered at the Warsaw Int. Filmfestival 2017 where we recieved a special mention by the jury. In 2020 I won the 'Zilveren Krulstaart' with my short film Afua.  

I write film scripts, TV-series and short films. Sometimes the ideas come out of my own head, sometimes sombody elses. But they are all stories that are ambitious and dramatic.    

In 2005 I got my Bachelor in Theatre and played in farious Theatre and Dance plays. 

The past 5 years I've performed in different TV series and commercials and many short films.
