Rick reveals to the newspaper that he is very good friends with Wilbert Gieske, who took on the role of Robert Alberts for years: “That is quite special, because I never speak to many colleagues from that time again.” The two played football together for a long time in an actor’s team and still regularly play golf. The two are also currently working on a new theater piece called The Mousetrap: Rick as producer and Wilbert as stage actor.
