(businesspress24) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Los Angeles (April 22, 2016) - Hessel Evelaar is a charismatic Dutch actor currently working and residing in Los Angeles. He is most known for his lead roles in The Mentor, Rest, and the upcoming web series P.R.I.S.M.

Evelaar moved to Los Angeles for his acting career after working nationwide as a model in Singapore and appearing as a child star on Dutch Television.

Evelaar’s latest acting project, P.R.I.S.M, is a comedic pilot for an upcoming web series about an organization of special agents. Evelaar plays the lead role of Agent Orange, a British special agent. During the audition process, Evelaar decided to use his European heritage to make the character British, which so impressed the casting directors they awarded him the gig.

"PRISM was an all-out fun project, I had a blast shooting this film with fast comedy, crazy special effects and lots of action!" According to Evelaar, the essence of acting is to be real and to be simple. "It’s to take a character that may be completely different from yourself or entirely surreal and find what makes them human, what makes them like me.”

Evelaar''s films are currently inundating the festival circuit with him in lead roles in The Mentor, which is headed for the Palm Springs Film Festival and the Cannes Film Festival, and in Greenly High Night School, with screenings at Venice, Cannes, Hampton Top 5, Los Angeles International Film Festival, and the San Francisco International Film Festival. Rest, directed by Greek director, Ioannis Marinopoulos is soon to hit the festival circuit as well.

Evelaar was born in Soest, The Netherlands, where he worked as a child star in various Dutch television shows including the nationwide children’s program Willem Wever. In his early teens he worked extensively as a model in Singapore, Asia, shooting print ads for the Sony-Ericsson Walkman Series and national commercials for the White Sands Shopping Centre, the Asian equivalent of Macy’s.

Outside of acting, Hessel has a unique addiction to building Legos: He uses them as sets to shoot his own original content! “We all have that inner twelve-year-old inside of us, I had to figure out a way to let him out and still be creative in my field!”

Evelaar also speaks fluent Dutch, English, French, and German and is currently in a relationship with actress Christine Uhebe.
