One of the best Swedish actors has left this world. Michael Nyqvist died a couple of days ago at the age of 56 but it was announced yesterday and came as a bomb out of nowhere! I didn’t even know (well he hid it very well apparently) that he had cancer. No one seemed to know. And now he is gone.
I was so privileged to work with Michael at a small commercial project for World Police And Fire Games in 1999. He was such a nice man, down to earth and he knew everything and everyone. And funny. He made us all laugh over and over again. It was almost impossible to not smile in his presence. So when I got the news that he was gone yesterday, it was like a great great friend has passed away. Yet, I only met him for 3 days and he probably didn’t remember me anyway. But that is a great memory I will cherish in my heart for the rest of my life.
RIP Micke! You will always be missed!
