Jesper on Jesper:
“Born in Copenhagen. Lived there ever since. Did 25 years of theatre, – like Alceste in the Misanthropist, Richard in Richard lll (solo), Faust in Faust, Astrov in Vanja, a lot of worried men,- stopped doing it in 1998. Since then only worried men on film. (I love men. We’re so stupid.)

Worked on more than 100 films by Per Fly, Marc Forster, John Madden, Lone Scherfig, Sydney Pollack, Jan Troell, Martin Campbell, Pernille Fischer Christensen, and others.
Since 2000 lives with Tove Bornhoeft, a wonderful Danish theatre manager/director/actress. Two grown up daughters. No animals. Dogs, pigs, chickens, cats, birds, horses, fish, rabbits,- all gone now.”
