The Bridge

Kim Bodnia has been in town to direct a play, The Tailor’s Tale, which presents differing views about what happened in Denmark during World War ll. Did the King really wear that vest with a yellow star…? The play was presented as a reading, which made for an interesting dynamic, as actors walked about the stage with manuscripts in hand, but with charged emotion nevertheless.

Although Mr Bodnia was the director rather than an actor in the play, he is so well known from the Scandinavian crime series The Bridge, that he was the focus of more attention than his unperturbed nephew, who actually wrote the play. I had an excellent conversation with Kim earlier in the day, and was very happy to hear it was his mother who encouraged him to act, rather than pursue an athletic career. She must have know how much we all love a thriller. Oh, but no, I can’t tell you what happens in the third season…
