Thomas Nomi (53 years old), Harald Runeberg (50 years old) and Truls Svendsen (51 years old) are currently attached to the comedy series “Kjendis AS”. Since the publication of the first episodes, the series has received significant column space, and there is complete disagreement among reviewers.
Nettavisen gave the series a six, while VG critic rolled a two on the dice. In other words, there are divided opinions about the trio’s humor project.
– Maybe many people think it’s strange to see us in such roles. “I have a rather embarrassing role,” Svendsen told Dagbladet after the mixed reaction.
And there is no doubt that Svendsen seems much less sympathetic to “Kjendis AS” than he otherwise appears.
Reverse TV 2 It also does not hide that there were some scenes that were particularly difficult to record. In one of the episodes, Svendsen’s character will involve artist Chow Baqua (43 years old) – according to himself, the former’s expressions were “clumsy and racist.”
– We cannot be the kind of management where there are only white people who can become our “poster boy,” as Runeberg’s character says in the series. When confronted with Svendsen’s character, he (who also plays him, editor’s note) forcefully states that he’s not a “poster boy” at all.
– No, we are not. Here with us, there are people from different backgrounds, says Svendsen’s character before he calls the dark-skinned receptionist to ask her where she is from.
– Broadcast team, you answer.
– There was a scene there… It’s painful to think about it, it’s really painful to play, says Svendsen, adding that Baqwa has witnessed similar situations in the past.
– It’s great to focus on the matter, even if the action is painful, because people have to learn to act. He warns that this must be done, because you cannot continue like this.
He also states that he is not afraid that viewers will think that the trio is as they appear in the series.
-We’re making a comedy series here.
-The stupid version of ourselves
Dagbladet met the trio when it became known that “Kjindis AS” would appear on screen.
Then they could warn that the series would have painful moments for the TV viewer, which would also have been painful to record.
– Yes, we are the stupid version of ourselves. You take your less fulfilling aspects and stretch them too far. “I have to say, being able to do that is pure therapy,” Ronberg said.
Numme hoped they would continue to get the audience on their side.
He said – There is a warmth and vulnerability at the bottom, which might make viewers cheer for us anyway.
