Actress Lieke van Lexmond is leaving GOEDE TIJDEN SLECHTE TIJDEN. She's been playing the role of Charlie Fischer since 2002 (Aukje van Ginneken originated the role in 1999). Van Lexmond hopes her character is not going to be killed off.
"I really fell in love with Charlie. I think it would be great to come back in the future for visits. That way I can enjoy my roots."
Fans don't have to say goodbye right away. Charlie will be on the show until at least the beginning of 2012. The news about Van Lexmond's departure from the show leaked out early.
Van Lexmond started her career on the soap opera GOUDKUST (which was canceled in 2001).
