In terms of the movie business, being in a 'Lord of the Rings' has given me more interesting options as work.
I mean, any movie or story that makes you accept and be grateful for something about your life is doing something right.
I'm not a great fan of monarchy in general, but I have to say the Danish monarchy is closer to the people; it's not as stuffy as the English one.
I've never played a Dane in a movie. I've had offers to be in Danish movies, including for some good directors, but I either had a job at the time or, when I was available, the movie just didn't happen. Hopefully someday I'll do one.
