Mikael is quite a character. In himself and as an actor. One of the hottest male actors for years over here in Sweden. Google him and you will find out more.
We had a great time in the studio when shooting the cover for a magazine. He challenged me by putting pressure on my role as a photographer, not just because he was a celebrity – I better do good because he is famous – but as a person with high personal integrity and with a clear message that he sure knows what he wants. I must admit I was nervous before my performance. I assume I felt like some actors feel just before entering a stage. But that feeling is good. The adrenaline is up and pumping, and you are more on the edge once the curtain falls and the magic begins. The point of no return is very present. You can take absolutely nothing for granted. I love those moments.
Behind his tough facade he is a kind man. He did let me know he was happy with the image. Thank you, Mikael.
