Claes Bang Life

Claes Kasper Bang (born 28 April 1967) is a Danish actor and singer. In Ruben stlund's 2017 film The Square, he is best known for his leading role as Christian.

He received the European Film Award for Best Actor for his role, becoming the first Dane to do so.

Early life

Bang was born on the Danish island of Funen in Odense. He mostly lived with his father and moved home often after his parents' divorce; he ended up attending several different colleges as an undergraduate. Bang was involved in the musical Hair, which ignited his interest in acting, and after he left school, he performed amateur theatre. He applied to the Danish National School of Theatre at the age of 23, but was disappointed to learn that the application deadline was 25 years old. He was turned down but re-applied again the next year and was accepted five days before his 25th birthday. He attended the school in 1992 and graduated with a degree in 1996. Brneteatret Skgspire in the play Tudseakvariet was his first theatre appearance after graduation, and he received his first role in Taxa, Denmark's 1997 television show. He has concentrated on Danish stage and television.

Personal life

When Bang and photographer Liz Louis-Jensen were both working on the play Den grnne elevator at Kanonhall, they met. On New Year's Eve 2007, Louis-Jensen proposed to Bang, and the couple married on a canal boat in Copenhagen on September 25th. Sarah and Bella are Liz's second children's stepfathers. Since 2008, the two have lived in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, Denmark.


Claes Bang Career

Acting career

He was a permanent member of Aalborg Teater from 2001 to 2004. He begged the theatre director for permission to perform Ondskaben, which is based on Jan Guillou's book Evil, in 2002. Bang purchased the rights to the performance in order to perform the monologue in other theaters after leaving the theatre in 2004. He has appeared nearly 400 times, including an English language version in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, and South Africa.

Bang appeared in numerous Danish television series and films early in his career. He gained a lot of attention (particularly in Germany) from 2006 to 2008 for his role in the Danish police drama Anna Pihl. He appeared in various German language scripts after he appeared on television (Küstenwache, SOKO Wismar, Notruf Hafenkante, Sibel & Max, and Cologne P.D.) And in film (Jungle Child, Raffi!, Alle unter einer Tanne, underne Tanne, undigendlich an der Scheidungsfront)

In Ruben s 2017 film The Square, which received the Palme d'Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, he played the leading role of the art museum curator Christian. He also received the European Film Award for Best Actor, becoming the first Dane to do so.

Bang was cast in the BBC mini-series Dracula, which was created by the film-makers involved in Sherlock in November 2018. It was revealed that although "sex" and "insatiable" it is also "a very witty performance" from Bang in a Guardian interview.

Bang will be seen on the pilot of Little Room (previously called The Agoraphobics Detective Society), which was produced by Maggie Montieth and written by his Dracula co-star Dolly Wells and Suzi Ewing and Heidi Greensmith, on April 14, 2020. Bang and the other cast members shot themselves on Zoom and were held responsible for the costumes, wardrobe, hair, and makeup, as well as sound. On May 27, 2020, Pinpoint Presents' pilot was released online by Pinpoint Presents, and viewers were encouraged to help those in the film, television, and film industries who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Music career

Bang's musical side project is called This Is Not America. "A sanctuary and a creative playground in which there is no director making the decisions," he says. Bang writes and composes the songs himself, and his musical style can be described as a mash-up of Gangway, Pet Shop Boys, and Depeche Mode. This Is Not America's music videos and album art are produced with the help of Lis Kasper Bang, née Louis-Jensen, who handles the recording and photography.

In 2002, Bang started writing songs for fun on his computer. He records piano and guitar parts himself (he learned these instruments when he was younger) and then programs them with other sounds on his computer. To circumvent DR's policy of not broadcasting tracks by actors and discourage his acting career from influencing how people think about his music, Bang chose the alias This Is Not America. The name derives from David Bowie's song "British Friendship," one of Bang's most popular role models. "Don't Come Crying," "Shameless," and "Run" were among the actor's first three singles on P3 for a year before the station learned that they were made by the actor, but his songs were also broadcast on various DR radio stations for a few years. These singles were later released on the debut album Dislocated on April 7, 2010.

Two of Bang's co-stars have appeared on several This Is Not America tracks. He released the single "Still of the Night" in 2015, starring Charlotte Munck, his co-star in Anna Pihl's Danish police drama. Bang discovered that co-star and singer Marina Schiptjenko shared the same interest in music, so he gave her some of his music and sent her a few demos. They recorded five songs in his home studio in Copenhagen after filming was complete. So far, the pair has released "Who Am I," "I Don't Care," and "Here We Go."
