Trine grew up in Belgium to a British father and a Belgian mother. She’s a creative individual with many strings to her bow. Acting has been a passion since she was little and she dabbled in theatre from the age of 13, going on theatre camps and joining her mother on stage from time to time.
At the age of 15 she was selected after several rounds of auditions to play a leading role at the National Youth Theatre (a.k.a Het Paleis) in Antwerp. Her passion only grew from there and lead her to audition for acting schools after secondary school. She was desperate to fulfil her acting adventure abroad and consequently was accepted at the Theatre Academy in Amsterdam as well as several Acting schools in the UK. She eventually chose to study a 3 year Drama course at John Moores University, Liverpool followed by a year at London and International School of Acting.
After graduating she joined the theatre circuit in London where several plays brought her to the Edinburgh Festival. She went on to perform at the National Theatre in Pristina, Kosovo and SMAK in Gent among other venues. Simultaneously her TV career took off in Belgium landing her several leading roles in various series for VRT and VTM as well as a number of guest parts.
Her curiosity and drive made her expand her horizons into working behind the scenes also as well as being part of various theatre installations bringing the audience to the forefront. She played a part in the organisation of large scale arts projects like Anthony Gormley’s One & Other Project in Trafalgar Square, London as well as a producer for Disney and music videos for the likes of LAMB and Scala & Kolacny Brothers. She also joined Angel Shed Theatre in leading drama workshops for children from difficult backgrounds and circumstances.
Trine also took a career break, not only to have children but she wanted to be around to raise them. She lived in various places including London, Munich, and Amsterdam. Several years and plenty of life experience later Trine decided to move back to Antwerp, where she continues to hone her love for the arts, most recently joining playField in #2 BIAS as part of their Big Data Trilogy, which can be seen in various theatres such as Kopergietery in Gent, Arenberg in Antwerp, and C-mine in Genk among others.
Trine speaks perfect Dutch (Flemish) and English and works as a regular voice-over artist for some of the biggest brands and studios in the industry.
