Holger Juul Hansen 1924 – 2013
I was asked by Euroman magazine to portray the Danish actor Holger Juul Hansen. Famous for he’s roles in Matador & Riget ( The Kingdom )by Lars von Trier. Shot on 8×10 Polaroid film in 1 take – I did a second shot but the magic was gone.We talked for a while, and as the classic gentleman he was, he kissed the hand of the female make-up artist before he left. I send him a signed print, and a few days later, I got a hand written letter back thanking me.”Thanks for not making me smile” he wrote.
He passed away last night at age 88.
