Carel Struycken Wife, Net Worth, Family
Using his behemoth of a physicality, actor Carel Struycken captivates the viewers' attention to the fullest.
Best known for his feature as Mr. Homn in Star Trek: The Next Generation, the veteran actor, therefore, remains a hit among Twin Peaks as well as The Addams Family fandom.
However, his frightening on-screen stature fails to reflect his true self.
Essential Details - Age, Height, Family
Carel's seven feet height isn't a family trait -- he suffers from a disorder called Acromegaly. The condition arises as a result of excess growth hormones.

Born on 30th July 1948 in Hague, Netherlands, The Prey star - now age 70 - is brothers with Peter Struycken. Peter is a renowned Dutch artist.
The Struycken siblings' artistry went through a renaissance after the family moved to an island in the Carribean.
When Carel turned 16, he returned to his native land to complete his high school and eventually studied directing at a film school in Amsterdam.
To further hone skillsets as a filmmaker, he traveled to Los Angeles to study at the prestigious American Film Institute. He even got the opportunity to work with director extraordinaire, Rene Daalder.

However, his most significant breakthrough was no lesser than an accident. Discovered while strolling on the pavements of LA by a woman, the Dutch actor made his Hollywood debut in the 1978 movie 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.'
A spark -- that's all Carel needed. Because of his ghoulish features, he landed roles in numerous projects such as ‘The Witches of Eastwick’ (1987), ‘Night of the Kickfighters’ (1988), ‘Framed’ (1990), ‘Oblivion’ (1994), ‘Oblivion 2: Backlash’ (1996), ‘Men in Black’ (1997), ‘Enemy Action’ (1999), ‘Fatal Kiss’ (2002), ‘The Fallen Ones’ (2005), ‘Trophy Heads’ (2014) and 'Gerald's Game' (2017).
No wonder, the 70-year-old film industry veteran boasts a reported net worth of $3 million.
As old and rich he is, Carel doesn't shy away from pursuing his passion. An avid photographer by hobby, he even curates a blog dedicated to his love for photography.
Married Life With Wife & Children
If his insurmountable height posed as a hurdle in landing a more conventional role, it undoubtedly did impact his search for a wife as well.
Thankfully, Carel found a soulmate in an American woman, who saw him as more than a giant. He and his yet-to-be-identified wife eventually got married and went to have two children - a son and a daughter - together.
There seem to be zero clues as to whether his kids have inherited his condition or not. Ironically enough, both of offsprings work in the field of medical science.
