Hub Consten was born in Brunssum, The Netherlands on October 31, 1916 and was an administrative mining officer by profession. As a player and director of the Zuidlimburgs Toneel he had already earned his spurs before he joined Rex Film. He made his debut on the silver screen in 1957, as professor Donkers in “De Nieuwe Adventures van Dik Trom”. As a film actor he was unique, he could play any role. Whether a crook, clown, good priest or cruel pirate leader, Hub shined in every role. Small in stature, but when he acted, he was remarkably present. At a later age he did not shy away from dangerous stunts, you could always rely on Hub Consten. In 2001 he could be seen in the documentary “The Rex Files”. Hub had appeared in 34 films during his career. On January 15, 2002 Hub Consten passed away at the age of 85 in Heerlen.
