We've been watching Sander Jan Klerk's filmography cause we liked him in the series Zoop. So we decided to watch his other roles listed on imdb. 

We watched Dok 12, Danni Lowenski, Baantjer, Westenwind. But he isn't in any of those series!!

He is not in the episodes, not his character, not his character name, not himself! He also isn't in end credits of these episodes. He just isn't in them at all. They are all fake credits!

In the series Suspects episode Missie Mali he is literally a background extra, he has no lines and can be seen for like 5 seconds sitting next to someone. He is also an extra in Moordvrouw where he has no lines, no charactername and is in it for 10 seconds where he runs away for cover. 

We made screenshots https://imgur.com/a/ZmbP1gF of the factual end credits as proof. We can also supply video's of the end credits that proof he is not in any of these series. Or better, just watch the series and see for yourself.

These are all fake credits:
"Dok 12" (2001)  episode Het mooiste meisje van de klas #1.8
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1299757/
"Westenwind" (1999) episode  {Voorbij Vegas #3.21
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1299757/
"Danni Lowinski" (2013) episode  {Alles moet weg #2.8
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3657806/
"Danni Lowinski" (2013) episode Monster #2.9
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3609978/
"Baantjer" (2002) episode De Cock en de moord om het woord #8.5
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0517428/

We trusted imdb to be accurate be this actor faked all his credits besides Zoop! Please correct this. We no longer trust this Sander Jan Klerk.

What if the fake actor will just re-add his fake roles?

Thanks, I can see that that has been accepted now and further internal action has been taken as well.

I'm glad this resolved but i still want to share my support. I've worked with this person in the past and he is known for faking his credit and pretending to be a bigger deal than he really is. He was in one popular tv-series 10 years ago but never got substantial parts afterwards, which is sad. He is now a background actor (extra) and passes those off as main cast roles. Won't be surprised if all his other credits besides Zoop turned out fake.
