Een leven lang theater Theaterencyclopedie Ritsaert ten Cate

Volgens Yvonne Bon

A teddy-bear kind of charm

Oud-medewerkster van Mickery (1966-1981) Yvonne Bon:

"Ritsaert has a teddy-bear kind of charm that attract women. In his turn, he's suceptible. You see it nog just in his relationships with women. In that world there are always people who are out to take advantage of you. If someone said they liked him, he would think they had to be nice, which was not always the case. He is slow to anger, but he does sometimes blow up. Usually he makes it up the next day. The angriest I ever saw him was with the English singer Sarah Churchill, in the early period. He said he never wanted to see her again, which he did not say often of people. Basically, he's a shy person, who keeps quiet in strange surroundings."
