During the two decades he has been working with stjärnregissörer as Ang Lee, Paul Thomas Anderson, Kelly Reichardt, and Steve McQueen.

go to the barrel for an actor puts himself in the registolen and so they did, Paul Dano above expectations. Ever since its world premiere in Cannes, ”Under an open sky” has been hailed for its mature depiction of the american kärnfamiljeidealen in the resolution. Together with his girlfriend Zoe Kazan (”Ruby sparks”) have Dano wrote the script and Richard Ford's book ”Wildfire” about the 14-year-old Joe (Ed Oxenbould), who with their parents are newcomers to Montana in the early 60's.

" It sounds ridiculous but I have often read books and heard songs and thought: this is written for me. ”Wildfire” reminded me of my parents and I were both seduced, and possessed. There was a movie here, " says Dano, with his mischievous smile.

Behind his round glasses, he gives the impression of being a well-read nerd, a bit mysterious, very soft.

I think the conventions are horrible. To keep back who you are.

– Just like in the movie I grew up in a family that was not self-reflective, which is not talked about their feelings. It is bewildering to suddenly realize that your parents are actually human beings with their own lives. You are thrown straight into the adult world.

an open sky', played by Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal, struggling with the expectations around the family unit and what they really need in life.

" I think that the Careys character really is a good mother, but the carpet pulled away under their feet. My goal was to describe their struggle in an honest way. Jake and I talked a lot about how family can be the greatest source of love in life. But also, sometimes, the greatest source of suffering.

not been known conventionally grabbiga roles. Often, he has appeared as a misfit outsider with a svårförklarlig hazard and vulnerability. Already during the formative years in Manhattan, he played on Broadway and had starring roles in the acclaimed drama ”L. I. E” at the beginning of the 00's and a supporting role in the tv series ”the Sopranos”. After the breakthrough in ”Little Miss Sunshine” in 2006, he has played in movies like ”There will be blood,” ”Taking Woodstock”, ” " Meek's Cutoff”, ”12 years a slave”, ”Love and mercy” and ”Youth”. Some of his main characteristics is the kufiska body language and the peculiar eyes.

The common denominator of all filmmaking is hard work, and caring.

" What I learned from acting is to interpret and ask questions. But also how the camera affects the dramaturgy.

– Paul Thomas Anderson learned to take the time needed to get something done. It has a calming effect to see someone wait until every detail is correct. It was the same with Denis Villeneuve ”Prisoners”. It gave me self-confidence. One must follow the natural instinct. But the common denominator of all filmmaking is hard work, and caring.

Despite hungry for regiarbetet he has no plans to put acting on the shelf. In Ben stiller's highly acclaimed HBO series ”the Escape at Dannemora” he plays a convicted murderer, his most satanic role so far.

– Both as an actor and director, it is important to either judge or forgive their characters. This is something that is up to the viewer. I like to get to be someone else for a while, but still take with a part of myself. Play me and find that little extra that I did not know existed.
