Ingvar Sigurdsson has one of those faces you just know. But that’s unsurprising when you consider the list of major productions that make up his back catalogue, including the likes of Fantastic Beasts and Justice League – not to mention an appearance in the latest season of Succession. But what we don’t necessarily get a sense for in these projects, is just how remarkable an actor he truly is – but if you see A White, White Day, from his homeland of Iceland, the talent is there for all to see.

To mark the digital release of this moving and stirring drama, we had the pleasure of speaking to Sigurdsson, as he talks about the challenges and complexities of this nuanced protagonist he is portraying. We also speak about his experiences shooting blockbusters, and how the experiences compare.

Watch the full interview below:


In a remote Icelandic town, an off duty police chief begins to suspect a local man for having had an affair with his wife, who recently died in a car accident. Gradually his obsession for finding out the truth accumulates and inevitably begins to endanger himself and his loved ones. A story of grief, revenge and unconditional love.

A White, White Day is released on Curzon Home Cinema, BFI Player and Peccadillo Player from Friday July 3rd. There will also be a virtual cinema release with 40 cinemas around the UK playing the film via their websites, with the venues receiving a cut of the box office so that people can support their local cinema.
