Personal Quote:

One of the things I've learned from 'Borgen' is that it's very easy to criticize people; 'I hate this politician, I hate what they do.' You are doing this right now with Margaret Thatcher, but sometimes it's hard to be a politician. I'm not defending Margaret Thatcher, but we believe our statesmen are also human beings. See more »

Trivia:

At his audition for Euron Greyjoy in Game of Thrones (2011), he improvised the second out of 2 scenes. His email hadn't worked so he'd only received the first scene. Never had he been so unprepared for an audition before, he said himself. See more »
