Early life

Anthonie Willem Constantijn Gneomar Kamerling was born on 25 August 1966 in Arnhem in the Netherlands.


Kamerling was still a law student when in 1990 he was cast in the then new Dutch soap opera Goede tijden, slechte tijden . His character, Peter Kelder, quickly became one of the most popular on the program.

In 1993, he got the lead in The Little Blonde Death , directed by Jean van de Velde. At the time, his casting was quite controversial, as soap actors were considered to be inferior to 'professional' actors. Kamerling eventually got nominated for a Gouden Kalf for best actor, the most important Dutch film award.

In 1997, he starred in another film by Van de Velde, All Stars . For the film, about an amateur football team, he sang the theme song, "Toen ik je zag" (When I Saw You), written by the popular Dutch singer Guus Meeuwis. The song was released as a single under his character's name, Hero, and soon was a number one hit on the Dutch charts. From that moment on, he tried to get a music career, but could never repeat the success of his first single.

After that point, Kamerling played in a couple more films, the most successful being I Love You Too (2001), and in television series like All Stars – De Serie and Onderweg naar Morgen . Later in his career, he played in a couple of musicals, including starring roles in the musical versions of Turkish Delight and Sunset Boulevard .

Personal life

Antonie Kamerling was married to actress Isa Hoes. They met on the set of Goede tijden, slechte tijden. They had two children together, son Merlijn and daughter Vlinder. His sister, Liesbeth is also an actress. Kamerling was a distant relative of the Ghanaian-born British actor Hugh Quarshie.
