‘Over the years I have come to appreciate the craft even more and I find it a challenge to bring a production to a higher level as part of an ensemble. It keeps me sharp, can give solace but is also confronting at times. Acting gives me the possibility to refine and diversify endlessly to, in combination with lots of other disciplines, bring the story into the spotlight in the best possible way. Letting yourself be surprised over and over again, that is the art of acting and also one of the most beautiful things there are.’
