He has played krigsveteranen CC in "Warrior", and had recurring roles in the Swedish series 'Springfloden', the icelandic 'Caught - a murderer among us' and the German 'Crime scene', and then he toppled Denmark pounding as the hævntørstige doctor in Fenar Ahmads 'Underworld'.
Dar Salim in the course of the past few years in the extent established his name firmly at the top of the posters, and he has not come sleeping to it.
It has been breathless - so breathless that he is in 2018, choosing to tear a whole year out of the calendar, which he is not in advance had taken the decision as to what he should do.
It was a much needed respite to the actor, which now is current in the movie 'until we fall', where he has the role as Adam, who has lost his son.
- in Short, it was just necessary to take a break for me. In a job like mine you need some times to let up and not be on the recording and be a different and lend its emotions out to the other, says Dar Salim explains:
- I only have my own flesh and blood, my own joy and my own sorrow, and I have to find it inside myself, when I need to use it in a role. It is me, that marks it in the end. You are better to turn on and off it, but it has a price each time you do it. It is not necessarily a bad price, but it always has an effect, he explains.

In 'til we fall' play Dar Salim, together with the Swedish Lisa Carlehed a couple whose little son disappears on a holiday in a Spanish resort island. Several years after returning to the couple to return to the island, because the police will close the case.
A nightmare for any parent, as the 41-year-old Dar Salim in the role of Adam should try to put themselves into.
- I understand the grief and pain. As actors we live to be able to understand and have an unlimited empathy for others ' situation and their starting point, explains the actor.
- It requires an emotional capacity and imagination, to sincerely be able to feel it. It can only, if you are open and do not judge. And here I am thinking not of how I am in private, for which I have plenty of opinions, but how do I in my work can and should be completely open. It means that you can make some stronger characters, he says.
But it consumes the forces that were to make the strong characters and, for example, put themselves in a state of sorrow every day, when you meet at work.
Dar Salim was the focus point in the story, therefore, the love between the couple, although they have experienced the most horrifying, one can as parents.
- He (Adam, red.) is a man who actually has found the woman he will be with the rest of his life, he does not have all of the doubt, as many go around with. The love permeates everything he does, says Dar Salim, who won the prize for best actor for his role at the film festival Tallinn Black Nights in Estonia in december.
Even is Dar Salim father to the son Zidane, that goes in 1. class. He has been a big part of the reason why Dar Salim chose to pause from his work and the direction he has decided to take in his future work.
- I have made so much now, that I am privileged enough to be able to put me down and feel what it is that makes that I'd like to make the next film, he explains.
- the Direction of the play for me is to do fewer things and have more built-in breaks. In 2019, I did hard with both to make a German feature film, where I have the lead role, and a series for DR, 'Peace for land', but in return, I take the whole of the second half of 2019 free, where I don't yet know what will happen, he says.
Maybe there are some projects that come in the house, but if not then am Dar Salim just to keep free for six months and have time for himself and his son.
He calls it the new direction in her life - a direction where he will not use each and every month to get higher up in the hierarchy or closer to break through in Hollywood. He has found peace there where he is.
- Perhaps it is to lead to any complacency, but it doesn't feel like that. My ambitions are still intact, I'm just been better to notice what makes me happy, and it is not to make three projects, it is perhaps only to low a, he says.
- The mentality, I have in the play, where I will do anything to be as good as I possibly can be, I am in the process of transferring to my private life. I will also be the world's best to enjoy my life, be the world's best dad and world's best friend to myself and others, and a good man. It is all there, the happiness and joy of living, he says.
