Type :  


Carel Struycken is a Dutch film, television, and stage actor. He is best known for playing Mr. Homn on the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation and Lurch in the films The Addams Family and Addams Family Values. He is an exceptionally tall man at 2.13 metres and thus is often called upon to play character or comedic roles in which height plays a major part.


Struycken was born in The Hague, Netherlands. When he was 4 years old his family moved to Curaçao, an island in the Caribbean. At age 15, while living on the island of Curaçao, he composed several Caribbean waltzes. At 16 he returned to his home country, where he finished secondary school. He graduated from the directing program at the film school in Amsterdam. Following that, he spent a year at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. In 1978 he was "discovered" as an actor.

Struycken is considered a giant as the result of acromegaly.
