Tim Haars (1981) is a Dutch actor.

During high school Tim accelerates as Aggressive Inline Skater, wins the Annual Dutch Championship twice and travels around the world as a professional International Inline Skater.

In 2001 he decides to focus on his other ambition: acting. He starts working for television and works as an actor as well as a presenter for several different Dutch television programs. Amongst them the famous series 6pack and Villa Achterwerk. In 2009 he stars as one of the main characters, Gerrie, in the popular TV series New Kids by the successful Dutch writing and directing duo Steffen & Flip. Followed by two feature films based on the series; New Kids Turbo and New Kids Nitro. Both films become a major box office success, not only in The Netherlands, but also in Germany and a large part of Eastern Europe. After the New Kids success, he gets the chance to show his broad ability as an actor in high quality series such as Van God Los, in which he plays the lead role, and Bureau Raampoort, in which he stars as one of the two main characters. In 2016 two films release; Familieweekend and the TV movie Fake. In 2017 he stars in the lead role in the new Steffen & Flip feature Ron Goossens, Low Budget Stuntman, for which he wins the award for ‘best actor’ at the Brazilian film festival Fantaspoa. Last year Tim played a supporting role in the featured film Taal is zeg maar echt mijn ding and in 2019 you can see him in the Netflix Original Undercover.

Variety on Ron Goossens, Low Budget Stuntman: “Topped by Tim Haars’ stoically dense lead, the comic character turns (most played by thesps who’ve often worked with the creators) are sharp.”
