I am teaching people to be bold and go outside their comfort zones, and in order to do that I need to be bold myself. So, even though this has felt scary for me, I need to share it:
For the last six years I have been working with companies to make them more collaborative, creative, bold, resilient and FUN. I love this work, and I feel it brings me loads of joy and also contributes a lot to the world. I know the transformational power there is in the work I do. Bringing the best of what I have learned as an actor and an improviser and sharing it with the corporate world has created some valuable results for my clients.
However, I have basically kept this side of my career under wraps. In the past, I have chosen not to fully share it with the world. I have only shared my acting projects. A big part of me was scared that by embracing this corporate side of me, I would diminish my identity as an actor. Creating the identity of an actor, was already challenging enough. It took years to get to the point where I could fully make a living and support my family as an actor. You are always so vulnerable as an actor as well, constantly being judged and rejected.
I have now found the courage to marry these two parts of me and for the last 6 months I have really committed hard to building my corporate business, and fully embracing it, and it is really starting to blossom. I realised that these two identities don’t need to be separate. In fact, they compliment each other. Helping people get the most out of themselves and being more authentic, has helped me realise I need to embrace me. All parts of me.
Part of this process is putting it out in the world more. So I had a video made of what I do. Check it out.
I am very excited about this upcoming project for the BBC. It is a great play and I think an important play about refugees. Got to work with some legends, Krister Henriksson and Nitin Ganatra. It is coming out in October 2017.
Sometimes I get to work on some really cool stuff that makes the little boy in me jump for joy. This was one of those times. I can now say I have worked on Star Wars and Indiana Jones video games and those are two of my favorite franchises of all time. Always a pleasure to work with DICE and Imagination Studios.
I am very excited about this new video game trailer I was in. This is some top quality animation and working on the motion capture part of this was so much fun. Great actors and a great Director from Bläck Studios Fredrik Lofberg and of course shot at my favourite place Imagination Studios.
Here is a recent VO project for Stockholm Pride. They put a pride festival in Grand Theft Auto. Very douchey character.
This is a pilot for a feature that I was in. This film looks really nice and deserves funding. Check it out. I come in at 8.30.
Check out my latest mocap work for Mass Effect. When I worked on this, I had no idea what a massive game this is. The animation is spectacular. Imagination Studios is always one of my favorite places to work.
I guess this fulfilled some boyhood dream I didn’t even realize, but it was fun as shit to play Bond. I did this commercial for a construction company that I work for a lot. 100% Proffs. They do fun stuff!
The video was taken down. I will put it back up soon!
I recently shot a commercial with Vinnie the mini horse. Wow, what a diva! I have never worked with such a diva before. We were filming a talk show scene, where I play a typical American Talk show host and interview Vinnie. He wouldn’t even look at me. We filmed for two hours straight, take after take, and he totally ignored me. I even fed him carrots and he still avoided eye contact with me. On top of that his hair was styled in a diva-ish way. Then after each take he would walk off set. Sometimes before the take was over! Then his trainer would get him to sit down again by banging a stick in the ground and backing him up, slow as hell, centimeter by centimeter. When he finally decided to sit we would shoot right away, and then he walked off. It was hilarious. Anyways, here is the commercial.
