Career

By the age of 20, Sylvia Hoeks came to the realization that her true calling lay in acting. In 2004, she began to grace both the television screen and stage. Her cinematic debut came in 2005 with “Frankie,” where she shared the screen with Diane Kruger, playing the character Rumina. Despite its release, the film didn’t catapult her to widespread fame.

Hoeks’ subsequent cinematic venture was “Duska,” featuring Sergei Makovetsky and Gene Bervoets, where she portrayed the friend of a principal character. Her performance in this film earned her accolades at the Utrecht Festival in 2007, winning her the award for best supporting female role. Following this, she participated in projects like “Tiramisu,” “The Storm,” “Tirza,” and “The Gang of Oss.”

Fortune favored Hoeks in 2012, as she landed the lead role in “The Girl and Death,” sharing the limelight with Leonid Bichevin, Sergei Makovetsky, Renata Litvinova, and Svetlana Svetlichnaya. The film’s premiere took place in the fall of that year. In 2013, she delivered a memorable performance in “The Best Offer,” depicting Claire Ibbetson, an agoraphobic heiress with an extensive antique collection.

2016 saw the release of “Berlin Station,” starring Richard Armitage, Rhys Ifans, Leland Orser, and Michelle Forbes, in which Hoeks appeared in a cameo role. 2017 was a landmark year with her role in “Blade Runner 2049,” alongside Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Jared Leto, and Robin Wright.

In 2018, Hoeks appeared in “The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” portraying the character Camilla Salander alongside Claire Foy. The ensemble cast included Sverrir Gudnason, LaKeith Stanfield, Stephen Merchant, and Claes Bang. A year later, she joined the cast of the American sci-fi series “See,” featuring Jason Momoa and Hera Hilmar.
