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."
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.
