Jo on Fans
"When I played Olli for the first time for example there was an older male fan who wrote me long letters and wanted to invite me to go on holidays with him. I always politely declined. But he didn't want to hear it and kept on inviting me. In one letter he even asked me if I wanted to marry him and asked me where I live, because he wanted to move close. That was a little bit too much for me and so I stopped answering the letters."
Thore on Playing It Gay
"A very important question was if I could make it convincing....I considered the storyline as a challenge and a big chance to learn and grow as an actor."
