Director, actor and producer Marc van Uchelen has passed away at the age of 42. This was announced by the Theaterkrant on Sunday.
Only six years old, he played an important role, as young Anton Steen, in the movie of the book ‘De Aanslag’ by Harry Mulisch. This movie was rewarded an Oscar, in 1987, for the best foreign movie.
