Today he appreciates those dark experiences suffered by him in life. It says Joel Kinnaman as GP meet him prior to the premiere of the action film Run all Night, where he is an innocent target of the criminal gangs. A character who, like he himself makes a trip and come out different.
Joel Kinnaman is Sweden's hottest Hollywood star — but his life has not always taken place on the bright side. During his teens he hung out in a criminal gang, robbed, bullied and was bullied. The fight was a part of everyday life.
– That was very anguished years and I constantly had a lump in his stomach. Even today, I have with me the years in every role I do.
We are sitting in a suite at the Ritz-Carlton in New York. Outside, the sun shines, it is one of the first spring days. Joel sit reclined in his chair, his jeans shirt sitting tight over the athletic upper arms, he has let his beard grow for a new role. He looks me in the eye and says:
– But you learn afterwards using those negative experiences and turn them into something positive. Today, I can even almost appreciate them. It's a beautiful recovery process.
I ask how he turned the tough years to a strength.
"It was actually a very special event that triggered it. I was wrongly accused of something I didn't do. My friends turned against me and pounded me up. Over the next few years, I had to fight every time I ran into them, it was a lonely time.
Run all night is an action movie that also depicts a father and son relationship ruptured. The film is about the gangster and assassin Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson), who has a night to decide where his loyalties lie: with the gangster family that he himself opted for or with her son Mike (Joel Kinnaman), which he long ago abandoned.
When his son becomes the innocent target of criminal gangs, the aging and alcoholic Jimmy the chance to set things right. Mike, who chose a different life than his father, is clearly marked by his childhood and struggle with aggression problems — and to not be like his father.
I try to find characters who find themselves in a moral gray area. Because I personally believe that life takes its shape precisely in grey scales, so I do not think about characters who is purely good or evil. They appeal to me. Good people do bad things and bad people doing good things.
I like to play characters that make a long journey and ultimately comes out changed.
When asked how he himself is working with he says:
I have a huge respect and humility towards my withactor. But I also have a good self-esteem. Haha.

Voices on Joel Kinnaman
Director Jaume Collet-Serra – He is the new Brad Pitt. He is healthy. And when the industry discovers it, they think, Ah, that Spanish Director was smart. He saw it even then. Haha.
Liam Neeson – He is a wonderful and endearing young actor who knows what he is doing. I am always pleasantly surprised by this particular group of young cast that is so incredibly self-confident. It makes me a bit jealous. When I meet them, I always think I wish I had the confidence that young. At the same time, he shows a great vulnerability.
Common -Joel is one of the sweetest people I've met in Hollywood.
He has a huge talent. I didn't have so many scenes with him. But in the scenes we had together was very strong and present. He is a good actor. In addition, he played always good hip hop music in his trailer, which I of course love.

This article from The Local gives more background on the hall of fame. No specific mention of Joel though. The link above from Agatha connects you to the pictures and bios of everyone.
Royals, designers, athletes, artists, businesspeople and fashion icons are among the faces welcoming travellers at the airport. 60 of the 93 celebrities were replaced by new portraits this week in the gallery, which was inaugurated in 2006. Their portraits and the greeting “Welcome to my Hometown” will meet tourists and other travellers when they arrive in Sweden.
“Stockholm Arlanda Airport is a window to the world and the airport is the first thing our foreign visitors are met by. Arlanda is an important meeting place with more than 20 million visitors a year and it is an excellent arena for promoting the city and the country,” Swedavia market director Michael Persson Gripkow said in a statement.
Among the new faces are actress Josephine Bornebusch - star of the 'Welcome to Sweden' sitcom by Greg Poehler - fashion blogger Kenza Zouiten, opera singer Malena Ernman - who represented Sweden in Eurovision 2009 - Hollywood actress Noomi Rapace, Swedish DJ wonder Avicii, football players John Guidetti and Kennedy Bakircioglü, Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel and the young Princess Estelle.
The idea is for the gallery to reflect the contemporary icons of Sweden, but it has not been updated since 2006.
“Stockholm Hall of Fame will now become a more modern and alive gallery where new famous Stockholmers will welcome people by giving them a personal picture of the city and what it stands for. We hope that the portraits are going to inspire our visitors and make them curious of Stockholm as early as at the airport,” said Persson Gripkow.
Swedish television personality Yankho Kamwendo, who is one of the new faces in the Hall of Fame, told regional newspaper Upsala Nya Tidning that he was excited to represent the capital.
"It is a fantastic honour to represent the city you live in. It's a delighful mix of people too," he said.
Some of the familiar portraits set to remain on the Arlanda walls include Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, actor Stellan Skarsgård, director Ingmar Bergman, Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustav and Queen Silvia, children's author Astrid Lindgren and tennis legend Björn Borg.

Nearly 30,000 people have called for an end to fur farming in Sweden – and now, they’ve been joinedby a famous fur foe: Stockholm-born actor Joel Kinnaman!
On the hit US drama TV series The Killing, Joel searches for cold-blooded murderers. And now in real life, he is looking out for victims of cruel and unnecessary killing – in this case, minks on fur farms in his native country of Sweden.
Joel, who also starred in RoboCop and Suicide Squad, was saddened to learn that Sweden still allows the cruel mink industry to continue, even though both fox and chinchilla fur farming has ended there. So the actor wrote to Sven-Erik Bucht, the Swedish Minister for Rural Affairs, expressing his desire to put an end to all fur farming in Sweden and urging the minister to place a ban on the industry as a whole.
“Sweden is known around the world for its ‘green’ credentials, but mink farming is most definitely not green. I was delighted to learn that the last remaining chinchilla fur farm in Sweden closed down in 2014 and that fox farming has also been phased out in the country. Please join Austria, the UK and other nations by banning all fur farms.”
Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages. Fur farmers use the cheapest and cruellest killing methods available, including suffocation, electrocution, gassing and poisoning. There is nothing but a horrible, painful death for animals in the fur industry, and the time has come to end this cruelty.
