FSWL can reveal news about another Swedish actor in Skyfall (2012), Jens Hultén. (Although we knew about this since last week, it has now officially been confirmed.)

Apart from Ola Rapace, Daniel Craig is joined by another Swedish actor in the upcoming film about Ian Fleming's James Bond 007.

The role as Javier Bardem's companion will be played by Jens Hultén, known for his roles in the drama series "Graven" on Swedish National Television, and the sequel, Morden (2009), and the latest round of Kommissarie Winter (2010). He is best known for his role as gangster leader "Seth Rydell" in the Johan Falk film series. (He recently finished shooting six new films for season two.) At the cinema, we last saw Jens in Gränsen (2011).

Jens, who has just returned from a couple of weeks filming SKYFALL in England, said:
"It's obviously great to be involved in SKYFALL. The Bond films are huge productions with some of the greatest talents, both in front and behind the camera, and which it is fantastic to be part of. "

Aside from Daniel Craig, who makes his third film as agent 007, Javier Bardem and Ola Rapace, the cast include Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Bérénice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Wishaw.

SKYFALL, by Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment, is directed by Academy Award® winner Sam Mendes.

The screenplay is written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan.

About the film:
In SKYFALL, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
