“It’s one of the coolest things I’ve done, seeing the characters for real, meeting the actors who play those characters and seeing how great they are. Peter Franzen [qui prête ses traits au roi Harald], I’ve worked with him a lot, and he’s just amazing. ”
The Sharks defenseman also had good words for the film crew. “They welcomed me and accepted me despite my lack of acting experience. I had no idea what I was doing. ”
