Here are some neat black & white portraits of Gustaf from Schön! magazine. Gustaf insists that there is no bad blood in the family when it comes to competing for roles. He confesses, "Luckily, we are different in type and age, so there hasn't been a lot of competition for specific parts. There is competition to the point that we can actually make fun of it —we'll keep scores and laugh about it. At the end of the day, we're in this industry to have fun." [and — maybe make a living. Gimme a break!] However, Gustaf doesn’t deny the difficulties that come with being part of an acclaimed acting family. "We're a very close family, and we've always been supportive of one another. But it's definitely easier to be happy for the other person's acting success when you're doing okay yourself. Ultimately, when you're all in the same competitive industry, it can be more hurtful to see the other succeed if you're not doing as well."


One of the most anticipated HBO/Sky productions premiering next year is the five-part TV mini-series, CHERNOBYL. The production is inspired by the true sory of the 1986 nuclear accident. Written by Craig Mazin and directed by Johan Renck, the series is expected to be aired by summer 2019. This retelling of the biggest manmade disaster ever will focus on the people who tried to deal with immediate aftermath: in some cases to cover it up, and in others to ensure it could never happen again. Stellan plays Boris Shcherbina, the Soviet official charged with handling the fallout, Emily Watson is a nuclear scientist who wants to find out why the disaster happened and Jared Harris plays Valery Legasov, the Soviets’ man on the ground after the crisis.
