Christopher Juner is on a rampage: he has not taken on new roles for two years after “Krigsseileren”

He adds that Juner is only now ready to consider new movie roles Bergens Tidende.

The award-winning actor is known for giving his all into his roles, but scoring the Gunnar Viken-directed war drama was extremely difficult.

– One of the most demanding things I've done, says Gunner, who went straight from recording the song “Maskineriet” for Viaplay to recording “Krigsseileren” – and worked for 11 months straight.

It was too much. “I couldn't land,” he said in the interview.

– Call it what you want – in a state of agitation, exhaustion. “I had to find a way out of this situation,” says Juner, 51, who bought himself a huge bull terrier, Walken.

He took it out for a walk and get some structure, and decided to take it with him on movie shoots from now on.

-I was constantly offered roles and was sent scripts, but I wasn't ready. There's no point in agreeing to something if I can't do the job 100 percent, says Gunner, who feels much better and is ready to take on new acting tasks.

But first it must be present in Golroten party in Bergen on Saturday, where he was nominated as best lead actor in the drama category.

“Krigsseileren” director Gunnar Vikeni is nominated for best series, screenplay and direction, while “Krigsseileren” co-stars Jonar Ine Wilmann and Pål Sverre Hagen are in the running for best dramatic supporting actor.
