... Q: What do you think of The Swede’s new look?

Christopher Heyerdahl: "I think it’s great… He needs to completely change the way the way the world sees him but also how he sees himself… [The look] was actually something I brought to the table and did my best to sell to the other creatives. There’s something quite shocking about it, the image is quite biblical. And you know there’s something that happens to people who go through great stress or have some sort of shocking event in their life, they tend to lose all the pigment in their hair."

Q: The Swede is a bit of a chameleon. Is that something you share with him?

Christopher Heyerdahl: "I must. It’s me playing him. [Laughs] The Swede is a survivor. And the fact that he survived the act of killing someone so close to Cullen Bohannon… There’s no way that those two people can meet up as the two people they were on the bridge. So, transformation, rebirth, is necessary..."
