Born in Antwerp before WW2, Paul 'S Jongers got himself noted at the local Actor's Studio (Studio Teirlinck) for his rugged good looks and easy way with lines. He soon formed a long lasting friendship with nited actor Julien Schoenaerts, and the two of them were known as a double act in Antwerp nightlife. He become closely associated with a string of 'dialect' movies released in Belgium in the 1950s (_Meeuwen Sterven in de Haven (1955)_, Schipperskwartier (1953), De bruid zonder bed (1955))before turning himself into a fully fledged theatre actor who did movies 'on the side'. Much respected by Belgium's most prolific directors, Paul suffered from a debilitating stroke in 1983 after falling off a stage in Antwerp. He lost all use of his right side,never fully recovered, and retreated into anonimity. He died only a few years later from cancer.
