Square-jawed Dutch actor Derek de Lint has provided exotic magnetism in American television and films alongside his work in his native Netherlands. Most familiar to American audiences for his starring role as Derek Rayne in the 1990s television horror series "Poltergeist: The Legacy," de Lint is recognized internationally for high-profile roles in the World War II dramas "Soldier of Orange" and "The Assault." At university, de Lint initially studied graphic design before turning to the performing arts. His stage work brought him to the attention of film director Paul Verhoeven, who cast him opposite Rutger Hauer in the 1977 Dutch resistance drama "Soldier of Orange." Afterward, de Lint appeared regularly on Dutch television and film for a decade, receiving his Hollywood break with a supporting role in the hit comedy "Three Men and a Baby." This was followed by the international success "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" and the starring role in "Stealing Heaven," director Clive Donner's romantic adaptation of the medieval romance of Abelard and Heloise. In 1989, de Lint signed on for a recurring role in the Vietnam war drama series "China Beach," and returned to series television for "Poltergeist: The Legacy" in 1996. Following the end of that series, de Lint continued alternating between jobs in Holland and Hollywood. In 2006, he reunited with Verhoeven for the WWII drama " Black Book." In 2010, he returned to Dutch television for the lead role of flower company CEO Anton Zwager in the family-business drama "Bloedverwanten."
