The itch to return to acting became too great.
Van Hoof only thinks it is positive that many new faces have appeared in ‘Familie’ in the past two years. ‘There is a cheerful, fresh vibe in the studios with all that new young violence. This means that Stefanie now belongs to a different generation and she will have to do some searching to find her place again in “Family” land.’
Fortunately, things are different for Van Hoof. The actress was welcomed back to the set in Lint for the first time last week, and immediately felt at home again. ‘After my first day of shooting it seemed like I had never been away. I wonder what else Stefanie will experience!’
