this fandom is beyond ridiculous and fucking irritating, henrik didnt say anything wrong lmao and as someone whos done acting and had to answer questions like that, what he said was totally normal? he's not in the US right now, his acting career in norway is still small, he doesn't need to be as cautious as high profile actors in the US. this fandom... its like they understand nothing. theres a time and a place, he talks a bit different in each interview with different people...
and his thing abt ‘supportive friends’ was totally true tho, some people who are ur friends can get too obsessed with your character and treat you different and put you on a pedestal. its incredibly unhealthy to continuously take your work (e.g. even which is a complex character) home and be hounded abt it 24/7 bc you need to take care of yourself too. thats why in acting there is so so much talking and analysis so you’re also able to separate yourself at the end of the day, it’s work.
yeah see this sums it up about right.
