From Tuesday 14 June he will take on the role of judge Alexander Cosyns. “He is the fellow student with whom Tom regularly went on a date and made fun,” Erik says about his new character. “Alexander is confident and also charming. But at the same time he is full of himself. He shows others that he considers himself very good, both in his private life and in his work as a judge.” The viewer will get to know Erik as a passionate golfer. Tom and Alexander have reconnected through a lawsuit and the friendship from the past is immediately back. The character appears for a while in the last two weeks of this season, before going full out from September.
