BIOGRAPHY

Tobias Hjelm is currently appearing in two plays at the Uppsala City Theater: David Farr’s ”The Heart of Robin Hood,” directed by Gisli Örn Gardarsson and Selma Björnsdottir, and ”Fat Steve,” written and directed by Martin Lindberg. He was last seen on TV in the German-production ”The Inspector and the Sea: In a Dark Night,” directed by Anno Saul and based on a novel by Mari Jungstedt.

During the past few years we have seen Tobias in the critically acclaimed production ”Mefisto Remixed,” by Klaus Mann and directed by Kia Berglund at the Guillotine Theater (Teater Giljotin), as well as in Rickard Günther’s production of Lars Norén’s ”Love is so Simple,” at Scala Theater in Stockholm.

Critics unanimously celebrated Tobias’ performance in ”Mefisto Remixed.” Newspaper Dagens Nyheter wrote that he ”is perfect in all the roles, a few people might sell their soul for his talent.” Tabloid Expressen said that ”his chameleonic transformations are worth the price of admission” and the culture magazine Kulturbloggen said that he ”gave a fantastic performance, which made me sit enthralled throughout the show.”

Tobias has participated in many productions at the Uppsala City Theater, some examples are: Leo Tolstoy’s ”Anna Karenina,” directed by Linus Tunström, ”Men who Become a bit Irritating in the Company of Women,” written and directed by Nikolaj Cederholm, and Dennis Magnusson’s ”7:3 Re-visited,” directed by Dennis Sandin.

We have also seen Tobias at the Västanå Theater in Molière’s ”Misanthrope” and Selma Lagerlöf’s ”Gösta Berling’s Saga,” both directed by Leif Stinnerbom. He has even toured with Kia Berglund’s production of Per Olov Enquist’s ”The Night of the Tribades.”

Tobias has acted in many acclaimed plays at Stockholm’s City Theater, including Thommy Berggren’s production of Harold Pinter’s ”The Homecoming,” Åsa Kalmér’s production of ”Quay West,” Christian Tomner’s production of ”The Christmas Oratorio” and in ”When the Glass Door is Opened,” directed by Eva Gröndahl.

We have also seen Tobias in plays like ”The Master and Margarita,” ”The Girl and the Blame,” ”Your Moment on Earth,” ”The Black Brothers” and ”Othello,” all also at Stockholm’s City Theater, as well as ”A Different Struggle” at Kilen in Kulturhuset. At Teater Giljotin (Theater Guillotine) he was in ”The Courage to Kill,” ”Winter,” ”The Perfect Man” and ”Madame de Sade.” Tobias also performed in ”Birdy at Gotland’s County Theater, ”Dead End” at Teater Tribunalen (Theater Tribunal) and at Teater Plaza (Plaza Theater) he was in ”The Father” and ”The Masquerade.”

Tobias played the main role in the TV series ”The Masterpiece” and has even appeared in TV productions like ”Beck: Buried Alive,” ”Drottningoffret” (The Victim Queen), ”The Inspector and the Sea: In a Dark Night,” ”August,” ”The Preacher,” ”Barnen på Luna” (The Children on the Luna), ”Ivar Kreuger,” ”The Shipping Company,” ”Skilda världar” (Worlds Apart) and ”OP:7.”

Tobias, who studied at the Theater College in Stockholm from 1995 – 1999, was awarded Stockholm City’s culture grant for theater in 2007, with the motivation: ”Tobias Hjelm enters his roles searching and experimenting, and the result is intensively burning and vulnerable and his method of acting places the audience in an exhilarating here and now.”
