I rarely trust the press - but sometimes I just might...

The opening night off - Richard III, was off to a great start.

A beautiful summernight at the castle, set the scene and people seemed to enjoy our performance.


I welcome you to have a little look into my life as an actor - soon.

Armed with a pocket camera I will share a personal peak behind the scenes in the making of RICHARD III.

Time and time again I sit after I end a project and reflect about the process. How it has been, the frustrations, the rewards – and often I end up wishing that I could remember more of what happened. 

When I first signed up to play RICHARD III, I knew that this would be quite a challenge, so I decided to document my journey from the first day to the very end. 

I want this to be as hornets as possible, diary-like documentary without thinking too much about technical cinematic stuff. A rough out of the box – reallife behind the scenes look, into what I go through as and actor on a journey like this…

So armed with my two little friends I try to record the essentials of this process. I will stop recording the very moment I enter the stage on the opening night.

More soon

REHEARSALS IN LONDON IN FULL SWING.

REHERSALS OF RICHARD THE 3. NOW STARTED IN LONDON AT JERWOOD SPACE.

So we moved in to the Jervood studios in London, to start rehearsals of Richard 3.

Already two weeks in, things are starting to take shape. It is always an honour to be surrounded by such talented actors. The English cast have all done a lot of Shakespeare so of cause that is very inspiring and helpful.

Furthermore I’m finally in a play with my childhood friend Mads Knarreborg, who offers great comfort and creative fun in the room.

Anyhow – this is by far the most challenging part I have ever put on. I’m struggling with the word (and there is a lot)…

But I guess we will get there eventually – I hope. So right now there is nothing else to do than to push forward.

My horse my horse – my kingdom for a horse!

IT GOT DIRTY ON OUR FIRST DATE - SHE IS A KEEPER...

DUCATI DREAM TOUR - RAJASTHAN

What better way to celebrate the purchase of your new machine than to meet the rest of it’s Italian family and put her to the test…

This bike had me at hallo, and our love affair is growing stronger mile after mile.

Luckily for me Ducati India had planned one of their amazing dream tours, starting two days after I got my hands on my Ducati Desert Sled, so of cause I joined.

This time the dream was set in the majestic region of Rajasthan – and it did not disappoint!

While I’m editing my own #TRAVELLERBEHINDBARS-version of the trip, I urge you to take a look at this great little film from the trip!

More on this amazing journey soon.

Ride safe.


SHAKESPEARE'S - RICHARD III

THE SHIT IS GETTING REAL...

It’s with humble pride that I can announce that I, for the first time in almost 4 years, will be doing a play in my home country of Denmark.

This will in many ways be my most challenging role to date, portraying one of history’s  most iconic personalities – Richard III – ooooh by the way… in Shakespearian English.

Furthermore, this will play out over summer in the iconic settings of Hamlets castle of Kronborg. Luckily I will be surrounded by the most talented colleagues and friends, and I promise that we all will do our outmost to pay our respects to this amazing material.

So much to say about this project, and thinking about it scares the shit out of me – but that’s when you know it matters.

Ticket-sales start today…


A FLIRT WITH AN ITALIEN LADY...

She might be the one...

I have been flirting with an Italian lady for a while now. I think it’s time we meet!

I remember when I was around 17 years old. Me and my childhood friend was riding our mountain bikes in the local woods, dreaming about bigger cubic than just our legs and teenage stamina. We would drop by the nearby gas station down the road and secretly read the annual car and motorcycle magazines. I remember them as being quit pricy, so we never bought them to bring home. Frederik’s parents had and eye on us – so every Christmas these magazines would find their way under the Christmas tree at his house. 

This was before internet and cellphones, at least cellphones one could carry in your pocket. 

So we would sit together and read and discuss almost every single pice of machinery our eye would feast upon. We could spend hours on looking at the cars and motorcycles dreaming about the freedom one of them could give us if we just had the money for it. 

The Ducati section was always what got our attention, at the time it was the Ducati 916 that became the dream bike (still is in some nostalgic way). We promised each other that we would get one each before we turned 30 years old…

Well – I’m now 41, I have had many motorcycles. Right now my garage holds a classic Yamaha XT 500 that I I ride and keep for passing on to my son and a KTM 390 DUKE that’s just being my little fun all round bike while living in India. But I never managed to get my dream Ducati.

Well this might be the year where that childhood dream will become a reality. 

For me motorcycles are not about the latest tech, actually it’s about keeping the bike simple and true. Witch is also why I still see my XT 500 as my favourite motorcycle of all time. It’s just nothing more than a dream to ride. No tech, no traction control, ABS, Bluetooth and all that – just kickstart and go. 

With that in mind, what would be a simple bike in modern times? There is a lot out there… but one bike has got my attention! 

Next week I have booked a test ride and if she wins my heart over I might bring her home. 

More in that story very soon.

Back in Vancouver to see old legends...

So I went back to Vancouver to visit old friends, some might even call them legends.

Just when you think everyone has forgotten about the old immortal Vandal Savage, an email ticks in. It’s my US manager Patrick asking for my avail in late January… “that’s all we know for now” he writes. I answer “yep – I’m game”… “The legends of tomorrow team wants to pin you for an episode” 

In this business nothing is reality until you see your credits roll up the screen at the premiere.  

Well, cut to present day. 

I’m in beautiful Vancouver – The city that stole my heart some years ago when I lived here for almost a year.

Set up in the good old “Sutton hotel” – better know as the “slutton”. This is the place where productions put up all the actors while shooting in van-city. Let’s just say that the bar is frequently visited by interested human beings mainly of the female specimen. 

Well I’m here, and tomorrow il be wearing my old coat, leather harness, all my 21 knives and this time – hair extensions. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for me, well I know, I read the script but Vancouver always surprises. 

Vandal Savage is back in town.

I will keep you posted! 


Back in Vancouver to work on a little project...

This time I'm back in Vancouver for a project I hold dear to my heart.

3 years ago I lived here for a year and I simply fell in love with the place. So there is no hesitation every time I get the chance to come back.

This time around I’m here in beautiful Vancouver to work on a little project that’s very dear to my heart, and while I’m here I might as well enjoy what the city has to offer.

Lots of friends are in town shooting legends of tomorrow or new projects, so there is never a dull moment.

Saturday I will join the cast of LEGENDS OF TOMORROW for their wrap party, and there is no doubt that it will be LEGENDARY! Can’t wait to see them all again.

That’s all for now – can’t wait to show you what comes out of my stay this time.

Vandal out…
