Gijs Blom Shirtless, Gay or Straight, Letter for the King. Today in Hot Dutch Men, we bring you 23-year-old actor Gijs Blom who will be starring as Prince Viridian in the upcoming Netflix series, Letter for the King.
Seems like the Prince will be one of the baddies of the show but we are not 100% sure about whether he really is a baddie which is why we’ll be waiting to stream the series once it drops five days from now.
This will be Gijs first Netflix acting gig and, if the series turns out to be well-made and well-received, it just might propel him to international superstardom. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the show will be as good as some of our favorites — like Dark, The Witcher, and Stranger Things — and not like the other ho-hum shows that the streamer have been churning out lately. Hehe.
Letter for the King may be the first time an international audience will be seeing Gijs but the young actor has been in the biz for sometime now and already has 29 acting credits to his name according to IMDB. To date, probably his most famous project would be Jongens (Boys) about a gay high school athlete who falls for another boy. The role earned him an acting trophy from the Zlín International Film Festival.
More about the film from IMDB: “BOYS tells the story of Sieger, a sporty, rather quiet 15-year-old boy who discovers love during the summer holidays. Sieger is training in the new athletics team for the national relay championships and meets the intriguing and unpredictable Marc. The friendship that develops seems nothing out of the ordinary, but Sieger secretly harbours stronger feelings for Marc. He engages in a lonely struggle with himself when it emerges that Marc is also in love with him.”
Here’s a still photo from the film with Gijs’ co-star Ko Zandvliet who played the Marc character:

By the way, for those who are wondering, here’s how you pronounce Gijs.
His complete first name is actually Gijsbrecht which is even more of a challenge to pronounce for those of us who are not blessed with a Dutch tongue.
