Personal Quote:

It's not the way how the lines are said that defines a great actor. It is what he or she manages to do with the time in between them. It's not the lines themselves that are the important thing or the decisive matter in acting, but the pauses. The silence; Any idiot can reel off lines. See more »


Ernst-Hugo read one book a day and at his death he possessed one of Sweden's largest private libraries. See more »
