My education in Denmark was fairly a large number. I went to one thing like eight or 9 main colleges. My dad and mom moved round so much after which they acquired divorced. I had new classmates each Monday.
We did a play in highschool. Somebody mentioned, “Would you prefer to be in it?” and I mentioned, “How may I? I’m not an actor.” They mentioned, “Let’s simply strive, it would work.” I used to be frightened of making use of to drama faculty. I used to be certain they’d say: “Thanks very a lot for coming, however no thanks.” I used to be fortunate to have been accepted.
It’s Claes to rhyme with face. That’s the best approach. However I reply to no matter.
I’m kind of fluent in English, German, Swedish and Danish. It’s a must to study a few languages if you wish to discuss to folks as a result of no one in the entire world speaks my language. I used to be superb taking part in Danish roles; I by no means went to Hollywood hoping one thing would occur. After which I used to be solid in The Sq., which was like driving the Ferrari of performing. After it gained at Cannes all of it went from there.
I’m in a band known as This Is Not America. I don’t suppose it’s true that each actor needs to be a musician and each musician needs to be an actor. Whether it is true, it saddens me a bit. For me it’s extra of an antidote to being on stage or a movie set, the place folks say, “Put on these garments, stand on this mild, say these traces on this approach…” Once I sit down with my piano or guitar, I get to name all of the photographs.
I’m not a way actor and I’m not an interpreter. I’m extra like a piano that the director can play no matter he needs on. I’m an instrument that the music flows by. It sounds a bit silly, but it surely makes whole sense for me to work like that.
I’ve accomplished a lot bare stuff – I don’t have an issue with it. In Dracula I mentioned, “OK, I’ll do it bare, then we’ll have a lot extra footage…” We filmed in Slovakia, so the one downside was it was freezing chilly.
I name it “my bare obligation”. I did an English play known as A Bucket of Eels as my last manufacturing at drama faculty. I used to be bare for the complete play. My father left on the interval as a result of he couldn’t bear it. I did a Danish play known as Sauna that takes place in a sauna with 4 people who find themselves combating and fucking and shagging. The theatre solely seated 50 folks – the viewers have been so shut they may have touched us in the event that they needed to.
The nice factor about taking part in Dracula is that he’s an actual folks particular person. He doesn’t care if [his victims] are male, feminine, black, white, or something in between. He’s simply considering a beautiful dialog and a good meal.
Is there a God? Um, I’m certain there may be. I’m simply ready for him to make himself identified to me.
Once I got here out of theatre faculty, some reviewer who was clearly very a lot in love with Pierce Brosnan mentioned that she thought that I reminded her of him. I actually favored him, however I’d be extraordinarily displeased if somebody got here as much as me and requested me for his autograph.
May I do Bond? No. I don’t suppose so. Do you realise how previous I’m? When Daniel Craig began, he was in his late 30s. After they do the following Bond, I’ll be 60.
