Lasse Fogelstrøm, who recently made his screen debut in Thomas Vinterberg’s latest film, “Hunt”, explained how he got his first break during a Q&A session held after “Hunt” was screened at Moscow’s “2-in-1” International Film Festival on Oct. 19
“My mother has a good friend who is a casting agent. She was searching for actors, and had met 800 kids of my age, but she didn’t find what she was looking for. And she chose me,” he told the audience.
The young actor made the most of his the chance to play the teenage son of co-star Mads Mikkelsen: “It was really cool! You know, I’ve watched James Bond films with Mads Mikkelsen, and it was very nice to work with him.”
Life on the set wasn’t just hanging out with Bond stars, though. The Scandinavian teenager admitted he had needed to get more disciplined, and said he had gained a huge amount from the experience.
Fogelstrøm also shed some light on Vinterberg's plans for the future. The director is already at work on a second installment of "Hunt", as the film ends ambiguously, with the conflict between the characters not yet resolved.
And Fogelstrøm is also getting offers for other roles: he’s agreed to star in a Danish TV series, and will decide on what to do next after the filming is over.
