I played Iago in the university class of Dramaturgy in Aarhus at Kasernescenen/The Barracks Scene.
I was originally cast as Michael Cassio, but the actor playing Iago jumped ship and then I got the part.
A great honor and I chose to play the character as a hero, since everyone in the world plays him as a villain.
Most people were satisfied with the change, but some Shakespeare aficionados probably have me in their evening prayers, where they seek salvation for my twisted spirit.
I was living in Copenhagen at the time and commuted between the two cities over a period of some six months.
