– I play Patrick – the man who must marry with Astrid in Italy, and Jacob is my Italian childhood friend, Alessandro, as I suddenly be drawn against. It is quite fun for both of us, we must play together again, laughing Silas.
– Even though I am a trained actor, and although Silas has experience from lots of other musicals, it is confidently that we have each other here, because it is a brand new musical, where nothing is tested before – not even how to deal with Silas’ and my love to the end.
Both the d’men was asked relatively early in the year 2019, if they would play with in Leisner/Bees-the musical, but James did not dare to say ’yes’ before he had a sense of what would happen with his and Silas’ dance.

For the players it is really a usexet, says Jakob Fauerby and Silas Holst. Photo: Linda Johansen
– If it had been a disaster, and if the danes could not hold out to see two men dancing together, so I do not think that it would have been good to let us end up as lovers in ’The bald Hairdresser’, thinks Jacob.
– But out of the thousands of comments we got while we danced together, there was only a small handful of really ugly. The rest was so positive. And it was an eye-opener for me. I was nervous and thought me very well before I said to TV2 that I would dance with a man. I admit that I had stereotypes about the danes ' relationship to the gays, but the fear was confounded. I had to eat my prejudices. In fact, I am proud to live in a country where there is so high to the ceiling, says Silas.
James is married with Anders, and Silas is the girlfriend of Nicolai, as he soon moves along with – yet, there is no risk of jealousy over the fact that the former dansepar must kiss to end.
Jealousy is poison to a relationship. You can't be jealous of each other's work. It is not Jacob who kisses Silas, but Alessandro, who kisses Patrick, " said Jacob.

--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------Private kiss private
Jakob Fauerby and Silas Holst known to each other, but had never been in the same company before they met to ’Dancing with the stars’. That is why they are both a little amazed at how quickly they ’grew together’ and became each other's friends.
– We taught each other so well to know in danseforløbet that I have missed Silas, if I have not spoken with him in a few days, explains Jakob.
– It quickly became the case that we brought our families together, and they can, thankfully, also like each other's company, smiling, Silas, and adds:
Private kiss private kiss, while the man is doing on a scene, is quite another. Here I am not bashful, if it serves a purpose, stresses, Silas Holst.
– Now are we doing some things together, which is also where the children are included – just as we keep the few dinners and the kind of old-fashioned way.
And speaking of jealousy. If some should have reason to be jealous, it's me. Just think, Silas has hired my husband, Donald, to sing in his band, Flamingo Orchestra. Was I at any time asked? Oh, and I did not. But my husband was. How is it, laughs Jacob.
– Anders sings damn good, said Silas.
The two former dance partners share a lot – both inside and outside users. F. ex. they must soon perform together at a large London-based radio station, where they again interviewed about homosexuality and the right to be completely free and open about his own love life.
– I'm very happy to be gay. And I'm also very happy about what I want to share. In the many years I was married, or now that I am gf with Nicolai, I have never kissed in public or in pictures. Private kiss private kiss, while the man is doing on a scene, is quite another. Here I am not bashful, if it serves a purpose, and so it will be in this musical, stresses Silas.
