Freek Vonk is the guest in the first episode of the thirteenth season of

Sterren op het Doek


Omroep MAX reports that the broadcast can be seen on March 13.

The biologist is the first of eight well-known Dutchmen to have themselves portrayed by three artists for the program presented by Özcan Akyol.

At the end of the episode, the guests say which painting they like best and take it home.

"I've never been portrayed before, but to 'Eus' got me all the confidence and fun exposed"


Vonk says in a press release.

"It was a great experience. The painting I have chosen has now found a nice place at home."

The first ten seasons of

Sterren op het Doek

were presented by Hanneke Groenteman until 2015.

In 2019 Akyol took over from the presenter.

The names of the other seven participating Dutch celebrities will be announced at a later date.

Sterren op het Doek

can be seen on NPO2 every week from Saturday 13 March at 8.35 pm.
