The Norwegian singer Aurora Aksnes from Bergen, explains that agreeing to be part of Frozen 2 was a no-brainer. “It made me feel very excited. Frozen carries such a magical, powerful story," she says. "So I knew it would feel right.”

Aurora recorded her vocals in an old church in England, calling it a “lovely” experience. “The room was beautiful, round, and it carried my voice to infinity and beyond without any extra reverb,” she says, explaining how the stunning setting influenced what would eventually become the “voice of the mountains.”

“I have a lot of different types of songs, as I struggle to only stay within one genre! If you like the Nordic vibe, I would say songs like ‘Runaway’ and ‘Home’ are good for you -- they’re both influenced by Nordic folk music. If you would like to be head-bang to an anthem for Mother Earth, then ‘The Seed’ is the one. If you are afraid of crying, listen to ‘Murder Song (Acoustic)’ or ‘The River,’ because crying is a beautiful process.”

What’s Next: "Everything. The world is so small and so big. I want to dance on it. And write about it. Scream to it and hug all the people in it. Music is such a wonderful thing. I just want to release as much music as I can. Puke it all out on all the lovely people. It’s going to be magnificent.»

HBO Europe has added another Nordic nation to its original production slate, putting in a series order for Kamikaze, HBO's first Danish drama series.

The Danish director Anette K, Olesen talks to NRK about her first time reading Norwegian Writer Erlend Loes novel on a flight home from Italy in 2009. She explains the book as an amazing visualized story with a crazy, wild, angry and humorous energy.

Kamikaze follows Julie, who receives a final text message from her father seconds before her parents and older brother are killed in a plane crash in Uganda. Thrown into an existential crisis, the 18-year-old sets out on a dangerous journey of self-discovery that will take her around the world.

Production on Kamikaze is set to kick off in January next year. The Danish series comes on the heels of HBO Europe originals in Sweden (Gösta, Beartown) and Norway (Beforeigners, Untamed).

Tom Erik Ryen, did stunt himself into the major Netflix Series Daybreak. Daybreak is an American post-apocalyptic comedy-drama, based on LA and filmed in New Mexico.

The professional skater, model and now also stuntman Tom Erik is living his dream as Colin Ford´s "stunt double» in Daybreak.

The Netflix series was released October 24, and Ryen got the job after recommendations from a well successful skater-stunt job for Walt Disney.

To krsby.no he tells about the Daybreak job as one of the most challenging and rewarding projects he has ever done.

Tom Erik has earlier before worked with a lot of big celebrities, like Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, Gigi Hadid and Lil Wayne. He has also worked with brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Jeep, Dunk-in Donuts and AT & T.

We are exited to see the series.
