Hilmar Gudjônsson - Shooting Stars 2012
A former football player, 27 year-old Hilmar Gudjonsson was hired at Reykjavik's City Theatre on graduating as an actor in spring 2010 and has since appeared in four plays there, ranging from Shakespeare to Ray Cooney. Before then, he had already entered the film industry in 2006 by having a supporting role in Clint Eastwood's Flags of our fathers and followed this with another small role in Ragnar Bragason's Mr. Bjarnfredarson in 2009.
He was cast in his first lead part in Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson's subtle and playful dramatic comedy Either Way this year, which recently took the top prize at the 29th Turin Film Festival/Italy. In 2012, Hilmar is set to have a supporting role in Óskar Þór Axelsson's feature Black Game.
