… I have shot this portrait of the famous Swedish actor Mikael Persbrandt who is internationally known for his starring role in the Academy Award winning foreign feature, "In A Better World". As you clearly can see my admiration for his talent is shown in the way I’ve tried to portray him – majestic like. For me he is the most outstanding movie and theater actor we have in Europe. His intensity in every role he plays seems only to matched by American super talents as Sean Penn and Al Pacino.
One of Mikael Persbrandt’s biggest fans was the iconic Swedish master director, Ingmar Bergman, who staged plays as Shakespeare's "King Lear" and "Maria Stuart" in which Mikael appeared at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm. Persbrandt’s theatre background is extended and he has successfully starred in several Swedish productions of such monumental plays as "Three Sisters", "Death of a Salesman", "Long Day's Journey Into Night" and Strindberg’s "Miss Julie". In 1997, Persbrandt starred for the first time as the hardboiled detective, Gunvald Larsson, in the movie series “Beck” the role that ultimately became his major break-through and a major hit not only in Sweden but all over Scandinavia and in Germany as well. His many movie and television parts also include the role of the character Beorn in the final installment of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies".
