21 September 1983
On the 21st of September 1983 Sytse Otto Taco Faber showed himself to the world for the very first time. The little guy was born on the Noormannenstraat in Wijk bij Duurstede, simply at home. His parents, Gerke Faber and Astrid Voormolen were proud as a peacock. Even brother Onno, two years older, gave a warm welcome to the newest family expansion.
The shy fellow grew up in the same house he was born in, in a cozy neighborhood with many other kids of similar age. There were very few cars in the street, and with a little playground on the corner, he could learn how to ride his bike carefree. From the age of 4 he went to school, de Windroos in Wijk bij Duurstede. As part of the graduation Sytse gave his first performance with an self written comical piece, with which he said goodbye to the school.
Hereafter, like many others, he went to high school, Montessori Lyceum Herman Jordan in Zeist, where he graduated at 17.
In high school Sytse had no trouble with the 'technical subjects', so he made to obvious choice to go to the Technical University of Delft to study Mechanical Engineering. Right away he started to find ways to embrace his passion for acting in his life. He found a theatre group (Internos) in Den Haag (The Hague) whereafter he decided to do comedy and cabaret with comedy group Abracadabaret. With an average of 4 shows a year, performing different pieces which were written by the group itself, he knew what he was supposed to do after graduating for his Masters at the TU. So he went off to fulfill his dream.
In search of a good path after his years in Delft he decided to go to theatre school 'De Trap' in Amsterdam. After a introduction course of a 2 months he knew this was the right path for him, so after auditioning for the Film and Television acting program, he was in and started his new adventure. After a period of a lot of learning, hardly any time for friends, but extremely enjoying his time he graduated from this program in February 2012.
