Following in the footsteps of movie star musicians like Scarlett Johansson, Dutch beauty Carice Van Houten has decided to bend the larynx for her debut album, See You On The Ice. Best known from Paul Verheoven’s Black Book, and for giving birth to something truly rotten in Game Of Thrones, Van Houten has produced a fine pop album, free of the cavity-inducing sugar found in such things as K.Perry ice-cream. Having denounced the machinations of Hollywood, this is a woman I’d suspect would be more at home in a field of tulips than in the city of angels. And Carice, I’ll see you on the ice or anywhere else for that matter, anytime you like.
