Marcus Schenkenberg biography
Bio:Marcus Lodewijk Schenkenberg van Mierop, better known as just Marcus Schenkenberg (born 4 August 1968) a male supermodel, actor, singer, writer, and TV personality; born in Stockholm, Sweden but of Dutch descent. Though he doesn't speak Dutch, he does understand it, as was seen on a Dutch TV show 'Jensen!' in May 2007.
He is the highest paid per-year male supermodel in the world, and also known for his muscular, well-proportioned body, and especially for his "washboard" abdominal muscles. Schenkenberg, who was discovered by American photographer Barry King, while rollerskating in Venice Beach, California in 1989, is approximately 1.90 m tall (6 ft 3 in) and weighs 82 kg (188 lb), though in reality he is said to be over 6 ft 3 in tall, rounding this figure down for the sake of his career, resulting in many conflicting published figures—even between his various agencies and his book.
Schenkenberg has appeared as "Tiny" in the movie Prince Valiant (1997), in Modern Talking (1999), Hostage (1999) (lead character), Dinner Rush (2000), and Meatballs and Macaroni. He has also appeared in TV programs and series: V.I.P. (1998), the German series Wetten, dass..? (2000), As the World Turns, The Corlucci Cald Show (on Italian TV), La Grande Notte del Lunedi Sera (Italy), and Never Mind The Buzzcocks (2002) as well as La Talpa, the Italian version of Celebrity Mole (2004). Schenkenberg is the guest host of a soccer TV program in Italy. He also appeared on VH1's fourth season of The Surreal Life. Recently Schenkenberg has developed his acting career further with the role of Danny a handsome billionaire in the teen horror independent movie called "Perfect Woman" (2006) produced by Olympus Productions Limited.
In 1997, he published a book, Marcus Schenkenberg, New Rules, which featured numerous photos and personal notes and comments about his career as a male supermodel, as well as contributions from colleagues, family members, and people in the fashion and modeling business.
