”The Affair’ actor Claes Bang felt like a child again as he was putting on costumes during filming for the period drama

Claes Bang felt like a child again on set for ‘The Affair’.

The 53-year-old actor explained how working on the period drama – which is set in wartime Czechoslovakia – recalled memories of being a kid put on costumes and role playing which helped him settle into the role of Viktor.

He told “It is exactly that, it’s like when you were five and you put on whatever costume and you just start roleplaying. It is that kind of thing.

“I mean, when you’re put in these clothes and you’re in this location, it really does a lot for you as an actor…

“You can actually focus on different stuff in a way. It really transports you.”

Bang noted the way stepping onto such a set is a transformative experience which enhances the performances.

He added: “When you’re in that house, in that costume, everywhere you look you’re suddenly back in that day and age.

“It just helps you with the framework of it and the mindset, the stuff that is just there naturally.”

The film itself is based on Simon Mawer’s 2009 novel ‘The Glass Room’, and while the ‘Dracula’ actor read the source material he tried to distance himself from it because of the big differences between the two.

He explained: “I did read it, but then I also realised that the script is actually so different from the book that I felt I had to leave the book alone and just concentrate on the script.

“I think it’s two separate works of art, and should be seen as that.

“There’s inspiration, absolutely, in the movie from the book but I had the feeling I had to leave the book alone and do the movie for the movie.”

Claes Bang fik aldrig det ønskede forhold til sin far

Skuespilleren Claes Bang fortæller i programmet ‘Det sidste måltid’ på Radio4, at han aldrig fik et godt forhold til sin far.



– Jeg føler ikke, at jeg nogensinde fik et ordentligt forhold til min far. Det ærgrer mig helt af helvede til, siger Claes Bang.

Han fortæller programmets vært, Lærke Kløvedal, at han var på nippet til det, men så døde hans far.


– Min far og jeg skændtes altid, de sidste mange år. Jeg er ked af, jeg ikke var bedre til at at se, jeg blev ked af det, hvis han takkede af på et tidspunkt, siger Claes Bang, der i dag ærgrer sig over, at de ikke forsøgte at imødekomme hinanden noget mere.

Han blev fuld, sur og dum
Sidste gang Claes var sammen med sin far, hvor han var ved sine fulde fem, var til hans bryllup tilbage i 2010.


– På det tidspunkt var jeg træt af, altid at dyrke hans yndlings hobby og det var at sidde sammen om et bord og drikke vin, så blev han fuld, sur og dum. Og det gjorde jeg også, siger Claes Bang.


Til brylluppet aftalte de begge to, at nu skulle de lave noget andet sammen. Der gik ikke mange dage efter brylluppet, hvor hans far ringede og foreslog, at de sammen skulle køre til Chichester og hygge sig i England.

– Bare det, at han stemplede ind på det var vildt fedt. Jeg bliver ret berørt af at snakke om det. Så gik der tre dage, så blev han syg, kom på hospitalet og lå der i fem uger, og så døde han.

From Vertical Entertainment, The Affair, starring Carice van Houten, Hanna Alström, and Claes Bang, is now available in select theaters and on VOD services. This period piece hearkens back to classical World War II dramas, with powerful performances from its cast, and is definitely worth your time. It’s admittedly outside of the Daily Dead wheelhouse, but with Claes Bang’s version of Dracula being one of my favorite performances of the infamous vampire ever, I reached out to see if he’d be up for talking about both Dracula and The Affair. Thankfully, he was very excited to discuss both roles in our video interview you can check out below!

The Affair Synopsis: “In 1930s Czechoslovakia, newlyweds Viktor and Liesel Landauer are filled with optimism and happiness in their new home. But all too soon, extramarital temptations bring out their darkest secrets and desires. As Liesel turns to her sensual friend Hana for the passion she lacks in her marriage, Nazi troops enter the country, threatening the Landauer’s lives and the burning desire between the two women.”


  • Release Date: March 5, 2021 (VOD)
  • Cast: Hanna Alström, Carice van Houten, Claes Bang, Alexandra Borbély, Martin Hofmann
  • Director: Julius Sevcik
