Icelander Best Actor in Sweden – Again

Icelandic actor Sverrir Guðnason received the Guldbagge trophy at the Swedish Film Awards last Monday for Best Actor—defending his title from the 2014 awards.

This year Sverrir earner the title for his performance in Flugparken. He was also nominated as Best Supporting Actor. Last year he was awarded Best Actor for his role in Monica Z, reports.

Swedish television viewers are familiar with Sverrir for his role as young police officer Pontus Höijer in the crime series about detective Kurt Wallander.

He launched his acting career in Iceland when he played Ólafur Kárason Ljósvíkingur in Halldór Laxness’ World Light as a child in Borgarleikhúsið theater in 1989.

During Monday’s awards ceremony, Sverrir surprisingly performed a song and acrobatics with presenter Petra Mede. The video can be viewed here.
