David Dencik was recently appointed Honorary Doctor at the The Faculty of Arts at the University of Gothenburg.
Since 2018, Dencik has been associated with the Academy of Music and Drama at the faculty where, thanks to the Stena Foundation, he has been a regular artist-in-residence. “David Dencik is a tremendously skilled actor. His track record is extensive and the role interpretations are often remarkable”, says Catharina Bergil, head of department.
In January Dencik won the Guldbagge Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Thomas Quick in the psycho thriller The Perfect Patient (Quick), and he will appear on the big screen in the next James Bond Movie, No Time to Die as the villain Valdo Obruchev. Dencik’s next visit as an artist-in-residence at the Academy is scheduled for spring 2021.
