In December 1999, Maud started working for Gemini consulting. A few months later, a new guy started at the same company, which was -by the way- part of the Capgemini group. This new guy was called “Edgar Scheffrahn” (CV on Linkedin). After working together for a few weeks, he started acting really odd, even aggressive. It ended more than awkward. If that wasn’t the case, this would be a joke.
The strange thing is, this guy Edgar also looks a lot like Barry Atsma/Peter Wezenbeek, when you imagine him without the make-up. We were considering this, as both Jan Scherders and Edgar Scheffrahn really worked against Maud at Capgemini. And now they both also look like someone from the boyband “The Shorts”? Jan Scherders looks like Hans van Vondelen so clearly. And Edgar Scheffrahn just looks like Barry Atsma.
Hilarious, but we are not laughing.
Just look at the shape of their faces, as the colors and facial impressions can be manipulated by actors (that is their job). Same ears, same eyebrows, same eyes (though different color). The shape of the mouth is the same, though Edgar looks like he is very tensed, while Barry laughs more relaxed. The contours of the cheeks are also the same.
Left Edgar Scheffrahn. Right Barry Atsma.
Left Edgar Scheffrahn looking stressed. Right Barry Atsma all sensitive and relaxed.
Edgar Scheffrahn and Barry Atsma have the same shape of face. The same ears. The same nose. The same (unevenly shaped) eyes. Even their teeth and smile look similar. Still, Barry looks very relaxed and at ease. Scheffrahn looks very tensed.
This Edgar guy (in 2000/2001), like the Jan Scherders character (in 2003/2004), both behaved very odd at Capgemini, to say the least. Unprofessional is an understatement. And they both look very much like a band member of the band “The Shorts”. This is extremely strange. It is an enormous coincidence. Of course we did not notice this before, working hard in the UK back then, not recognizing boyband “The Shorts” (1983). Also, we later never watched tv-show “Rozegeur & Wodka lime” (started a year later in 2001), since we were in the UK.
Fooks, why look actors on tv-shows so much like odd off characters we meet in real life?
ps. Fun fact. Both (see previous blogs) Jan Scherders (CV on Linkedin) as well as Edgar Scheffrahn show the same lyceum on their linkedin CV: Odulphuslyceum in Tilburg. What are the chances of that? Of course if it all would be an alterego (in theory this is an option), they need schools that confirm indeed these kids were there.
