Mikael Persbrandt talks Beorn Can't Post

I found this interview with Mikael on the Swedish movie site www.moviezine.se. It was mostly about the Swedish action movie "Hamilton" (in which Mikael plays the lead character), but he was also asked a few question about The Hobbit. A few of you might find it interesting... my translation is maybe not that great, but I will try to clarify if something is unclear.

Are you done with "The Hobbit" now?
MP: No, definitely not. I'm going back in February. I'll start shooting "Hypnotisören" with Lasse Hallström on Wednesday, then I'm off.
Are you in both "The Hobbit"-movies?
MP: Yes, I am. My character is pretty much as big as in the book. I'm not going to say so much more about it, because it's a big film company and they get so upset if I talk to much... But if you read the book you'll get a pretty good picture... and then maybe there's a little bit more.
How did they create your character Beorn? Prosthetics, or some kind of motion capture?
MP: Like I said earlier, I would like to survive the night. Otherwise, they'll send a missile after me I think. It's exciting to be in it. You'll see later. The premiere is a little less than a year away, in December.

Now now Bill, you swore this was a battle between warriors, not a bunch of miss nancies, so warriors is what I brought
