Hello there!

Welcome to my website!

My name is Annemarie and I am an actor with degrees in astronomy and physics. I have experience working in the fields of film, television, theater, education, science communication, cognition, climate & sustainability, history, philosophy and finance. I am a Renaissance woman.
As long as I can remember I have always been equally passionate about arts and the sciences and have been switching between these different passions. However, I have always found intersections between my love of acting, the human brain and behavior, and my love of physics and astronomy. I am a woman who naturally gravitates towards different areas of interest always looking for ways to link them. My skills range from software development to film and theater acting, from leadership communication skills to general relativity theory. Where others see separate or even opposing fields of interest, I see opportunities to integrate different modes of thinking.
I am a Renaissance woman. I fully embrace the generalist in me.
And I love the journey!

Would you like to know what keeps me busy? Then…

  • Last night was a very special one. I went to see @origintheatre company’s production of A Kid Like Rishi written by @cosmicwarriorkr Kees Roorda. The piece about a Dutch boy that was shot dead by the police on a platform of The Hague Holland Spoor Station in 2012 is beautifully performed by the three actors and very clearly and cleanly directed by Erwin Maas and scenically designed by @guy.de.lancey. It was the very first performance of the play here in the United States (apart from a public reading of the play back in 2018 where I had the honor to participate as one of the actors and meet Kees.) 
I just woke up, because after the show we went to hang at an Irish pub next door and I didn’t come home until 3am 😁. I spontaneously last minute decided to see the show the first night, because I happened to be in the neighborhood and I’m so glad I did. It’s a gem and now I can tell all of you to go watch it when you have a chance. Very powerful!!!

  • On my way back to Manhattan I’m reflecting on a fun & inspiring weekend at the @gardenstatefilmfestival . I watched many movies and met a lot of new people. This is my first big unmasked event again since the start of the pandemic. I’m so grateful to be back in the States! 🎉 I hardly took any pictures myself. Didn’t even think of it. Most pics were taken by professional photographers walking around at every #gsff event. I hope to share some of them with you soon. I did catch this moment: In my hotel room prepping for the gala last Friday night. 
Thank you to everyone who made me feel welcome again this weekend, after hardly being back a week in the United States of America! 🇺🇸 @fokke_baarssen @karmonaitis @melissamarsofficial @garry_pastore @heatheroscanlon @mrgcantor @lauren_concar_sheehy @brian.maybe P.j.

What an awesome experience on set yesterday, playing a character without hair and eyebrows! 
I’m really grateful for the fun and diverse acting gigs I get to do in The Netherlands these months while I’ve been waiting for my return to the US. I’ve been meeting a lot of nice new people, and I always hope I get to work with them again some day. 
Thank you to these two talented make-up artists @alanas.atelier and @camellian_sfx_makeupartist who did the special make-up for this role. A true piece of art! (Swipe for more pics)
I think this is the first time in my acting career that I’ve spent more time in the make-up chair than on the actual set, and I’m loving the experience.
