Did You Know?


Director Per-Ingvar Tomren is probably one of the world's first stuntmen with Brittle Bone Disease (Osteogenesis Imperfecta). The reason why this combination is so rare should be pretty obvious: during the shooting of "O'Hellige Jul!" Per-Ingvar fractured two ribs, a lot of fingers, toes, small bones, his jaw and sustained a skull fracture - which led to internal bleeding and a permanent brain damage. See more »
