Christopher Læssø in new Tv2 Zulu series

Christopher Læssø stars in new comedy series

A 10 year high school reunion, a crashed ferry and six former classmates trapped on an island for indefinite time.

That’s roughly the center of TV2 Zulu’s new series ‘Blå Bog For Evigt’ where Christopher Læssø plays the character ‘Theis’ - the once popular guy in school with a promising future, who finds himself ten years later still waiting for his big breakthrough as a comedian.

When the former classmates from 3.w. arrange that their 10 year reunion should be held at a tiny island, everyone is on board. But when the only ferry connecting the island to the mainland crashes in the middle of the night, six classmates are suddenly trapped on the island indefinitely.
Before they realise it, old patterns quickly rise to the surface and the six classmates suddenly stand face to face with their younger self. Instead of being the host of a joyful reunion, the island is now center stage of a showdown, where the former classmates are forced to face broken dreams, unresolved expectations, old romances and the uncertainty of the future all while the walls are slowly getting closer.

The series consists of 5 episodes of humoristic scenes, embarrassing altercations and heartfelt moments when Christopher Læssø in the company of i.a. Jesper Ole Feit Andersen, Sofie Jo Kaufmanas and Josefine Tvermoes, is forced to face the past to - perhaps - gain valuable insight of the future.

The Tv-series was created by Claes Quaade and premiers on the 5th of September on TV2 Zulu and TV2 Play. Peter Molde-Amelung as conceptualizing director and Esben Tønnesen as episode director. The series is produced by Mille Bjørke and Mastiff with Nikolaj Feifer as creative producer.

Christopher Læssø is to play Robin Hood

Christopher Læssø is to play Robin Hood at Folketeatret.

It will be a production depicting humour, romance and the fight for justice, when Folketeatret this October, will open its doors to the famous fairytale set in Sherwood Forest.

The story of Robin Hood and his gang of merry men, has been told far and wide and in all kinds of productions. This didn’t make the story less popular. Nowadays, young and old, most people will know about the dealings of the Sheriff of Nottingham, of Prince John and of the deeds of Robin Hood, Brother Tuck and their friends. However, in this version, some of the characters have had their storyline widened. For most people, Maid Marian, played by Marie Bach Hansen, is known as Robin Hood’s object of affection. However, in this production, she has a story of her own. She, and other women added to the story, can match the skills and wit of any man. Still though, Maid Marian cannot help being impressed by Robin Hoods archery…

This production introduces Christopher Læssø’s Robin Hood as young and naive, but before long, an indignant fire towards social injustice rises within him and soon he can be seen doing what he does best: Stealing from the rich, and giving to the poor - spiced up, with loads of jokes and laughs along the way.

This version of Robin Hood, was written by Tony- and Olivier award winning Ken Ludwig. With shows on both Broadway and in London’s West End, his plays has become widely popular and has been shown in over 25 countries. And now, Robin Hood, will make it to a stage in Copenhagen.

Christopher Læssø is no stranger to Folketeatret, having previously starred in ‘Mød mig på Cassiopeia’.

Robin Hood will premiere at Folketeatret at October 15th 2020.

Christopher Læssø spiller fange i utraditionel fængselsfilm

Læssø optræder i rollen som den indsatte Simon i ny film af Frederikke Aspöcks, som gir et twist på den traditionelle fængselsfortælling. Christopher Læssø fortsætter sin filmiske karriere med en rolle i det danske komedie-drama ‘De Frivillige’.

Sommerens film, ‘De frivillige’, er en utraditionel fængselsfilm. Det er historien om en gruppe vidt forskellige fanger der mødes som medlemmer af koret i fængslets afdeling for fanger i frivillig isolation.

I rollen som den indespærrede Simon, har Christopher blandt andet skulle tage flere kilo på for at tilpasse sig rollen og han satte pris på udfordringen i at spille en karakter som falder uden for nogle af de stereotyper han til tider ser i fængselsfilm: “- Hvis man ser en film fra det seneste årti, der foregår i et fængsel, så vil skuespillerne fortælle, at de har trænet benhårdt i tre måneder for at blive helt pumpede. Men der er jo kriminelle i alle lag af samfundet, og det skal man afspejle.” fortæller han til Avisen.dk.

I øvrige roller ses blandt andre Anders Matthesen, Jacob Hauber Lohmann og Søren Malling.

‘De Frivillige’ fik premiere i juni 2019.

------------------------------------------------

Christopher can be seen in the part of the inmate Simon in a new film by Frederikke Aspöck which puts a twist on the traditional prison story. Christopher Læssø continues his film career, which has included a part in the Palm d’Or winning film The Square, with a part in the Danish comedy-drama ‘Out of Tune’.

Christopher is educated at the Danish National School of Performing Arts and even before his studies started his acting career. Since then however, he has also had an impressive TV career as the host of some of Denmark’s most beloved shows such as ‘Denmark’s got Talent’ and ‘All Together Now’.

His new film ‘Out of Tune’ is a somewhat nontraditional prison film. It is the story of a group of quite different prisoners who meet as members of the choir in the section for those under voluntary isolation.

In the role of the inmate Simon Christopher, amongst other things, had to gain several kilos to adapt to the role and he appreciated the challenge in playing a character which falls outside of the usual stereotypes he sees in prison films: -”If you watch a movie from the last decade which takes place in a prison, the actors will tell you that they’ve worked incredibly hard for three months in order to get completely buff. But there are criminals from all parts of society, and that has to be portrayed” he told Avisen.dk

In other roles in ‘Out of Tune’ you’ll see: Anders Matthesen, Jacob Hauber Lohman and Anders Brink Madsen.

‘Out of Tune’ premiered in June 2019.

Christopher Læssø igang med optagelserne til De Frivillige

Spillefilmen De Frivillige instrueret af Frederikke Aspöck er netop gået i optagelse.

Komediedramaet handler om den berømte finansmand og jetsetter Markus Føns, der er blevet varetægtsfængslet. Efter et brutalt overfald af en gruppe rockere med forbindelser til hans mere lyssky forretninger, vælger Markus at gå i frivillig isolation blandt fængslets svageste indsatte. I denne afdeling findes et fængselskor, hvor den indsatte Niels er uofficiel og selvudnævnt leder. Markus beslutter sig for at blive en del af koret, og der går ikke længe, før han ligger i åben fight om pladsen i toppen af hierarkiet. En kamp, der ikke udkæmpes med muskler, men med list, tyranni og højskolesange.

"Det er en fuldstændig absurd magtkamp, der udspiller sig på den frivillige isolationsgang, hvor samfundets mest udstødte er indespærret. Filmen udfordrer temaet fællesskab versus egoisme og skal give publikum stof til eftertanke og ikke mindst et godt grin," siger Frederikke Aspöck.

I hovedrollen som Markus ses af Jacob Lohmann, og korlederen spilles Niels spilles af Anders Matthesen, mens Søren Malling og Christopher Læssø indtager andre bærende roller.
