"Defying the disease for gigga with Linnea Henriksson"
"TV4 custom recordings for people with MS Louise Hoffsten would be able to."
"Now make her christmas concerts together with the new-found friend Linnea Henriksson – but feel how ”So much better” continues to affect her health. "
"I feel a little exhausted, it takes on the forces even now when the program goes," she says. "
"An intense summer week was spent on the recording of ”So much better”, after a good month of preparation, where the songs would be re-written, produced and arranged."
"Louise Hoffsten, 53, who suffers from the chronic disease of MS, the work was extra tiring. "
"Last day of filming, hyllningsprogrammet to Monica Zetterlund, which aired last Saturday, remember her with the words:"
"– Partly I was very exhausted, it was so amazingly tired after a week of recording. If you disregard it I thought that it was really nice."
"”All was skittrötta”"
"But she wants to stress that it was not she who was exhausted."
"– All was skittrötta, " she says, and laughs. "
"How do you feel afterwards when you have seen all the software, you will glad you did it?"
" I'm thrilled, I'm very proud. All did their best with the fantastic interpretations, and, in general purely personal as we have been against each other. All have been very... now, I miss the word... caring is not quite the right word, but roughly. They were very accommodating. We cared about each other and it was real, it was a nice meeting, " she says."
"she kept the most contact with after this summer's recordings are Albin Lee Meldau, Charlotte Perrelli and, above all, Linnea Henriksson, who she shows, together with the anticipation of christmas."
"– I'm in linnea's christmas show at the Grand Hotel so her I am in constant contact with, " says Louise with a laugh."
"– She invited me to be with, she did that already on the island. She invited several of us. It is a blast, I like Linnea. She is supermusikalisk and a nice girl so it is very to be with her christmas show. "
"Louise Hoffsten hit of the chronic nerve disease, MS, multiple sclerosis, over 20 years ago. For Louise's part, she feels sometimes of the disease, the worse the flare-ups. When she was asked about being in ”So much better” hesitated she the first to say yes, she has previously said to Nöjesbladet."
"Break up: ”Painful”"
"In the last program, where the performers meet again and remember back in the recording period, breaking Louise Hoffsten together. Albin Lee Meldau becomes teary-eyed to see Louise Hoffstens interpretation of his own song ”Lou Lou” – which is emotional even for bluessångerskan. "
" I can just see it I have a problem with. My hands, " she says in the programme and recognises that it is hard to watch yourself on tv."
"– It is painful. Now I will not cry. It was important for me to do this program. It was important for me to make the songs as best I could. Then, it is hard to see itself and its problems. It was like black and white, the whole Swedish people can see it. And trying to hide the dark, " she says, struggling against the tears."
"She explains in the program that the image she has of herself does not correspond with what she sees on the tv screen."
"– It is painful to see it, and I see that I have become worse. It is skitjobbigt. But I just want to point out, to be in this program and meet, it means something very large. "
"Taking on the forces to see the programs"
"Was there a time during filming that you felt that it didn't work out, that you would not be able?"
" No, the thing is that the tv did a bit of adjustments, both for me and Charlotte, in that she was pregnant. So I didn't have to keep up on all the stuff that was there. They were very accommodating. But we still had the aim to make a good tv programme and it is clear that you want to be with as much as possible, but I got a little dispensation. "
"It sounds like you are in a good period now?"
"– I'm in a good period, but I feel a little exhausted at the same time. It takes on the forces even now when the program runs, you need to experience it again somehow. It is not so ordered, if you say. But it is still positive, there is a lot of joy now that the applications are listed and you meet the audience. It is very nice comments, it pleases me, people who come forward and express that they like it. Stuff like that gives power, " says Louise Hoffsten. "
"”So much the better – the reunion” airs Saturday at 20: 00 on TV4 and TV4 Play."
