Personal Quote:

There are so many rules in Hollywood. I'm not allowed to talk to extras. If I do, then suddenly they can claim higher pay. One time somebody fooled me. He asked: "Shall I stand like this?" I said "OK" and then it was done. The extra got pushed higher up in the system and got three times as much pay. See more »


Has a cameo as a sailor in the music video for A-Ha's "Forever Not Yours", which he also directed. He is the sailor who hands Magne Furuholmen his guitar. See more »
