PORTRAIT

One of Norway's most talented and accomplished performers, the Northern Norwegian Bjørn Sundquist has been a prolific figure in Norwegian film, stage and television productions since the late 1970s, with his career peaking during the 1990s. Sundquist, who was previously affiliated with Det norske teater and Nationaltheatret, has enjoyed a versatile career in which he was given life to roles as diverse as the feeble-minded Levion in Erik Gustavson's Telegrafisten, to the uncompromising investigator Konrad Sejer in the TV-mini "Se deg ikke tilbake" (for which he won his record third Amanda award) and a parodic stint as a conglomeration of many of his precious roles in Harald Eia and Bård Tufte Johansen's comedy show "Åpen Post".
