PORTRAIT

Remarkably talented performer of theatre and film who is equally apt in periodic romance as in contemporary comedy or heavy drama. After making a name for himself in a handful of early-1990s films, notably under the guidance of Hans Petter Moland (Secondløitnanten, Kjærlighetens kjøtere), Eidsvold was hailed as the future of Norwegian acting and was seen in a number of lead roles on stage, notably Hamsun's "Sult" opposite his brother Eindride. Eidsvold's natural presence in front of the camera coupled with his characteristic, bug-eyed appearance has made him a favourite amongst critics and audiences alike.

 

TRIVIA

  • I first saw Eidsvold on stage at Nationaltheatret in a magnificent stage adaption of Knut Hamsun's Sult in which Gard played the lead and brother Eindride played his inner demons.
