Nicolina Dijjers Spanier (5 November 1909 – after March 1982), known professionally as Lien Deyers, was a Dutch actress based in Germany.
Nicolina Dijjers Spanier was born in Amsterdam on 5 November 1909, the daughter of Nathan Spanier, a piano teacher (1857–1916), and Johanna Liefjes, a seamstress (1889–1920). She had a half-brother, Andries Liefjes, (1906–1960), a child from a previous relationship of Liefjes. After Spanier’s death, Johanna married the hotel-owner Egbert Dijjers (1874–1948) and the family moved to The Hague.At the early age of five her potential was noted by Amsterdam theatre owner and film producer David Sluizer, but she did not enter the film business. Deyers spent most of her childhood years in The Hague until her stepfather, Dijjers, married the Austrian actress Lotte Erol. Lien then traveled between The Hague, Vienna (where the family mostly lived) and Lausanne, where she went to a private school and became fluent in French.
