The career of Mathias Coppens started in 1993 with the film 'De Wereld van Ludovic'. The film is about two teenagers who fall in love and therefore run away from home. Mathias got the leading role and the Dutch Bella van Meel was allowed to crawl into the skin of his co-star. In the film, the two fell in love, but in real life Mathias got butterflies in his belly.
'Already after day one I knew that I was in love. I've never been in love so much in my life as I did on Bella, but I've never dared to say that to her, "says Mathias. It's time to change that, Steven Van Herreweghe thought. Because in his program ' Van Algemeen Nut ' he brings the two old acquaintances together again.
The recordings for the film remind Mathias as if it were yesterday. "I did not go to school for two months and I fell in love." But there was also a nude scene in the film and that was not always easy for the 13-year old boy. 'I was so frightened to play that scene, because Bella had to undress me and then we had to lie naked next to each other', he continues.
