Who Am I?
My name is Magali Jeger.
I am an author, playwright, actor and TV-show creative developer.
Born and bred in Antwerp, to a Dutch mother and Belgian father. It's my secret power - code switching between Dutch and Flemish.
Moved to England at the age of 18 to study theatre in sunny (read: freezing cold) Southend-On-Sea, after which I worked in London as an actor, playwright and theatre-maker.
Autumn 2022, I moved to Amsterdam. A place that seems oh so familiar, yet so foreign at the same time. Here I am working as a creative developer for drama and comedy series.
And... translating my novel Hanna to Dutch. This translation will be published in November 2023 by Just Publishers.
