Actor Bo Svenson Talks About Directing Dont Call Me Sir

Best known for his role in the 1976 cult classic “Breaking Point,” Bo Svenson is now utilizing his talents on the other side of the camera as the director of “DON’T CALL ME SIR!” a biopic of the life and career of groundbreaking judo legend Rusty Kanokogi, starring the 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist in Judo Kayla Harrison


What inspired you to choose a career in film/TV?

I was drawn to the magic of storytelling.


Do you have any advice for people who are looking to get into the television and/or film industry?

If being in entertainment is what you really want to do, go for it with all your might and don’t give up.


 If you had a carte blanche, what type of role would you like to create for yourself? Who would direct and who would star in the project?

If I had complete financial and creative freedom, I would take on Shakespeare’s King Lear. Antoine Fuqua would direct and Eva Mendes would star as Cordelia.


 What do you look for from a director to help you give your best performance?

Space. It’s hard to act when being smothered and micromanaged.


What is one thing about acting that most people are shocked to hear when you tell them?

People are still shocked when I tell them that the key to great acting lies in having the courage to be oneself within the given circumstances of a scene.


When you’re not filming, what do you like to do?

I enjoy writing in my free time. I’ve written multiple novels and numerous screenplays. In fact, I’m in the process of making a movie for my most recent screenplay, Don’t Call Me Sir! It’s a biopic about judo legend Rena “Rusty” Kanokogi, who will be portrayed by Olympic Gold Medalist Kayla Harrison.
