Interviews with Mikael Persbrandt

January 27, 2011 at 8:20 pm by Tehanu  - 

Ringer spy Kristi alerted us to these clips of Mikael Persbrandt, cast as Beorn in the Hobbit. “This one’s all in English. It’s especially interesting near the end when Mikael talks about entering a special world that some directors are able to create,” Kristi says. Mikael Persbrandt interviewed by James Lipton.
This clip, showing his work as a Unicef ambassador in Afghanistan, gives us another insight into Persbrandt’s character. “This is a role outside his acting career, and I think it does him credit, and shows a Beorn-ish side that the filmmakers must have seen in him.”

One response to “Interviews with Mikael Persbrandt”

  1. Persbrandt is a great addition to the cast.
    I think that the makers of the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings should have casted more people from the Nordic countries. There would be more variety in the accents and appearance of the characters.
    Now the common language is spoken in the same manner by all of the people in middle earth (except for the odd Irish accent).Tolkien describes that you can tell differences between the different folk (Said of the Gondorians in chapter “of Herbs and stewed rabbit” for example. Scandinavian and Finnish way to pronounce English is more close to the way it was spoken in the middle ages. And for lot of English speaking people it sound a bit archaic. And I think more natural than of some of the American actors/actresses in LOTR movies.
    These are just few things that popped in to my mind.
    All in all I think he will make a great Beorn! (One of my favorite characters)
