Black Bear has announced that their management arm has signed award-winning Danish-American actor Elliott Crosset Hove for representation. Hove is best known for the Danish/Icelandic feature Godland, which premiered in Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival last year. His widely lauded performance in the picture earned him ‘Best Male Actor’ at the 2023 Bodil Awards, as well as a ‘Best Actor’ nomination at the European Film Awards.
Hove’s previous feature film roles have also attracted widespread acclaim, including Rasmus Heisterberg’s 2016 feature film In the Blood, for which Hove was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Bodil Awards, and Hlynur Pálmason’s Winter Brothers, which won him a Danish Robert Award and Best Actor at the Locarno Film Festival. He has appeared in Journal 64, Before the Frost, Parents and Wildland. Most recently, Hove starred in Katrine Brocks’ The Great Silence and Simon Jaquemet’s Electric Child, which is currently in post-production, alongside Rila Fukushima.
Beyond his film career, Hove has also received the distinguished ‘Reumart Award’ for his performance in the 2017 stage production of “Hamlet,” and starred in Danish/Swedish series “The Bridge.” In 2019, he was selected as one of the ‘European Shooting Stars’ at the Berlin Film Festival.
