Denmark learned of the seriousness of the Herman Tømmeraas to know as 'føkkboyen' the Penetrator-Chris in the Norwegian series "Shame", which took the embrace with the youth in the year 2016 and created a lot of attention.
Now get the 22-year-old actor with 1.7 million followers on Instagram soon even more attention. He has landed a role in the Danish Adam Price's new Netflix series, 'Ragnarok', which has just been launched in no less than 190 countries.
It required, since not many considerations for Herman Tømmeraas to throw herself over the role last Year in the series.
- first, it's just great to be in something like Netflix is behind, and secondly, I thought that it was a really good script.
- It is written and made by the danes, which is probably the closest we come on Hollywood here in Europe. So the whole package was really exciting, and for me it was perfect timing, " says the actor.
He got another good reason to be in the series, when he heard how several in the industry-publicized Danish Adam Price, who has written the script for the series.
I had heard his name before, and I spoke with some of the instructors I have worked with, who told that he was a wonderful guy and had a bold vision.
- He is such a guy who comes into a room and have everyone's attention in a matter of seconds. Therefore, I would really like to be with in the series, explains Herman Tømmeraas.

'Ragnarok', he plays the popular guy last Year, who comes from a rich family and goes in 3.g in high school, where he can mæske in the young college freshman who falls for him on the strip - not unlike his role in "Shame".
But still, there is a big difference.
- He may seem outwardly as cold and cruel, but I think he goes through an emotional transformation. He changes very much throughout the series and really take a journey.
- In the 'Shame' had my character, Chris, no transformation, he was pretty much the same all the way, and it was completely fine. But here I have had the opportunity to do something more with the character and the transformation he must go through, he explains.
'Ragnarok' also revolves around a bunch of high school students, takes place in Norway and have more Pity stars in the cast, so stop the comparison there.
Netflix even call Adam Price's series of a 'coming-of-age drama inspired by the nordic mythology'.
A story, Herman Tømmeraas believe, is obvious to take hold of.
- Here it is not americans, who must check and interpret the norse mythology, and try to make something out of it. This is something that actually stands us scandinavians closely, and as we know a lot about. So who could be better to tell the story than us?, says Herman Tømmeraas.
'Ragnarok' premiered on Netflix the 31. January.
