We first discovered Þuríður Blær Jóhannsdóttir when she was on stage at the Hoxton Bar & Kitchen in London – back in the good old days when we could see bands live! It was a hot Summer in 2018 and our first experience seeing Daughters of Reykjavik, which was epic (read our review HERE). Two […]

Star of HBO Nordic’s Beartown – Miriam Ingrid

The pandemic swooped in and screwed everything up – but fortunately there was an early release of the movie with BFI and then […]

We Catch Up with Icelandic star of ‘Trapped’ Ólafur Darri Ólafsson

You might recognise this big beardy character!

From HBO’s True Detective, to The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, The Last Witch Hunter, and Steven Spielberg’s The BFG. Perhaps lesser-known works that we […]

One to Watch: Finnish Actress Krista Kosonen

Krista has become somewhat of a household name in Finland after appearing in a sketch comedy show, but she is best known for her roles in movies such as Jade Warrior, Blade Runner 2049, and last year in the strangely titled ‘Dogs Don’t Wear Pants‘. A film as fascinating as its title, Krista plays her […]
