Alexander and the Dragon
Alexander Rybak likes “Taken” and “Fatso” and dreams of a blockbuster movie about Ole Bull with himself in the main role. Now he is of current movie interest as the Norwegian voice of Hikken in “How to Train Your Dragon – 2”. We fired off some questions about dragons and other stuff.
– Hi Alexander! What do you think of Hikken? Tell us a bit about the similarities and differences between you and him.
– We both enjoy overdoing facial expressions and both have cow eyes. But Hikken stutters a lot more because he is spontaneous. I think through every word I say. And that`s both an advantage and a disadvantage when you`re dubbing a movie, I often have to put on a different hat and step into the role a 100 %.
