Why all of them can speak English so well? I've noticed this when I watched Borgen (sth like danish House of Cards) some time ago, all of the actors speak english fluently. There are also many Danish actors in foreign TV series, like Mads Mikkelsen or Kristofer Hivju from GOT who is in the same agency as Alex. Do they have some amazing schooling system (except being paid for attending school of course) or what?
Yeah, I think “some amazing schooling system” is the answer, and not just in Denmark but in the other Scandinavian countries as well. I also believe they often don’t dub shows or films in English and just release them with subtitles. And imagine if you could speak with only 5 million people in the world and no one else, you’d learn a foreign language, too!
Plus, English is not a particularly difficult language to learn ;-p
