Norwegian actor Rune Temte, best known for the role of “Ubba”, the Danish Viking chieftain on the BBC TV series “The Last Kingdom”, is now attached to Metal Girl for the supporting role of “Manfred”. Airing on both BBC TV and BBC America, “The Last Kingdom” is produced by Carnival Films, producers of the Golden Globes and Emmy Award-winning international TV series “Downton Abbey”.
Born in Solbergelva on the ouskirts of Oslo, Norway, Rune trained at The Drama Studio, London, and has played in theater across Europe and Scandinavia to critical and audience acclaim. He was recently seen in the major German TV series “Tatort”. In the 2016 hit British biopic film “Eddie The Eagle”, he plays Bjørn, the Norwegian ski jumping coach, opposite Hugh Jackman and Christopher Walken. He will be seen next in Season 2 of Sky Atlantic’s international TV series “Fortitude”, playing the role of Lars Ulvinaune.
About joining the cast of “Metal Girl”, Rune says:
“The script from the upcoming movie “The Metal Girl” has an interesting tone, which appeals to me in the sense that there is more said between the lines, and that it can be developed into a film that will work on different levels. The script has a lovely sense of innocence that so many films today lack in the porno-fixated society we live in. I am flattered to be asked to be a part of this exciting project.”
We’re equally excited to have him.
