year of drama school and had many offers to choose from after graduating. She decided to join Johan Simons' ensemble at NTGent, where she played many different parts on stage, modern to classical, from Elfriede Jellinek to Billy Wilder to Marlowe.

Herbers also met Ivo van Hove through Simons and worked with him on "Opening Night" at Cassavetes. He later asked her to play the lead in his feature film "Amsterdam," which co-starred Marisa Tomei. Herbers played one of the leads in the Prix Europe and Emmy Awarded Television movie "The Chosen," directed by Theu Boermans. They continued to work together on three plays by Arthur Schitzler, a writer of whom they both are big fans. She performed his monologue, "Miss Else," under Boermans' direction, gaining rave reviews.

Herbers worked with the Oscar nominated and Emmy Award winning director Ben Sombogaart on the blockbuster feature "The Storm." Critics raved about her portrayal of the Dutch Princess Maxima in the miniseries "Beatrix." In "Brammetje Baas," she played a loving-but-tormented young mother, whose child doesn't seem to fit in this world.

Rudolf van den Berg directed Herbers in the feature film "Süskind," in which she played the right hand of Walter Süskind, who helped over a thousand Dutch children escape the Nazis during World War II. She recently starred in the Dutch television series "Divorce."

Herbers comes from a family of successful classical musicians. As both her parents traveled constantly for work, she grew up with a Canadian au-pair and, with a German father and Dutch mother, she is now trilingual.

Herbers lives in Amsterdam and Munich.
