Carice won her 5th (!!) Rembrandt Award last week in the Netherlands for her role in “Black Butterflies“. Congratulations Carice, we are so proud of you! The Rembrandt Awards are one of the biggest dutch movie award shows, it’s kind of like the People’s Choice Awards because the audience can vote for their favorites.

We added the first photos we could find of Carice attending the award ceremony in our gallery.

The dutch distributor A-Film announced this week that Carice will star in the upcoming dutch comedy “Alles is Family” (Everything is Family). Carice starred in 2007 in the dutch comedy “Alles is Liefde” (Everything is Love) which is kind of the dutch “Love Actually”.

The movie will start shooting this summer and will premiere in Holland in November. It tells a story about a family who has to made a crucial decision. Carice will portray Winnie, a women who really wants to have a baby.

The movie will be directed by Joram Lürsen, who also directed “Alles is Liefde” and the whole cast will be announced next week. We are personally really excited for this film, since “Alles is Liefde” is one of the best comedies ever made in Holland!

The creators of “Game of Thrones” talked to DIY about the upcoming season and to promote the DVD/Blu-Ray release of the first season. They also talked about Carice for a bit.

Were you involved in casting Carice van Houten?
Weiss: Yes. That was one of the things we loved most about the show and why we’re so excited to be not just writing but executive producers is that we go to do the casting and had never had that opportunity before. The movies I’ve worked on the screenwriter has no say in casting. You can try and whisper in the director’s ear or if you know someone at the studio you can say, “what about this person?” But you have no power whatsoever. Whereas in television as the showrunners we’re responsible for the casting and it was a little intimidating at first because it’s a massive cast and we’ve never done it before and we’re trying to fill literally hundreds of roles. But it’s also for me one of the most rewarding things because there’s no more important decision in making a show or a movie than which actors play which roles. And so we’re able to cast Carice as Melisandre or Maisie Williams as Arya and then watch them inhabit those roles and really become the characters. It’s been thrilling for us.

How did you know her?
Benioff: From Black Book.
Weiss: And from Black Death I saw as well. All the black! And Black Butterflies with Liam Cunningham who is also in our cast.
Benioff: We had tried to meet with her for season one. We were really impressed with her work and she wasn’t available at that time. And when season two came around the part of Melisandre was open and we thought let’s take another shot at Carice it’s probably not going to happen because she obviously works so much but we managed to get her to Belfast for an audition and ten seconds in we knew she was the one.

New York Times published a brand new interview with Carice talking about “Games of Thrones“, “Black Butterflies” and more. Be sure to read the full interview after the jump/inside.

Dutch actress Carice van Houten first came to the attention of American audiences in Paul Verhoeven’s subtitled, Nazi action movie Black Book (and then as Tom Cruise’s wife in the underperforming Valkyrie). She’s back Stateside with the launch of the second season of the HBO series Game of Thrones, in which she plays the red priestess Melisandre, who’ll be backing Stannis in his bid for the crown. Before that, however, the actress will have two new films in theaters in March: a bit part in the horror movie Intruders, and a starring role as suicidal South African poet (and Nelson Mandela favorite) Ingrid Jonker in Black Butterflies, a film for which she won the best-actress award at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Houten put in a transatlantic call to Vulture the other day, to chat about small-pond superstardom, her need for more colorful projects, and nude scenes.

Love your Twitter feed, especially the note at the top about how you’ve done so many films with black in the title: Black Book, Black Death, and now Black Butterflies.
I don’t know, man. Black is a cliché in titles. I need something white, like a comedy. I have a love-hate relationship with Twitter. There are moments I feel like 99 percent of the people who write stuff are the sweetest people, and then one crazy guy or girl spoils the whole thing. I know I shouldn’t be reading all of it, but when you’re a celebrity in your own country, it’s an easy way to show them you’re made of the same stuff they are. I want them to know I’m one of them, that I’m not on some island, swimming in my money, you know what I mean? [Laughs.] It’s a very Dutch thing to not want to be a diva.

Carice was featured in the dutch magazine Hollands Diep late last year (October-December issue). We added the scans in our gallery, it’s in our opinion one of the best interview she gave so far so we are planning on translating it into english. The editorial (photos) contain some nudity, so be aware of that before viewing the images.

These scans are again site exclusive, so please do not re-post or use these without giving credit.
