Stefán Karl has taken part in the LazyTown Live shows around the world. In Mexico, there were so many spectators that Stefán needed the help of bodyguards. He says he played the role of Robbie Rotten a large part of his life, and to stop playing him would be like divorcing his children.
Actor Stefán Karl Stefánsson is in Iceland this summer filming two Icelandic films. However, he has not been moved back to Iceland, far from it, because Broadway has called and shown great interest in Stefán after he made a breakthrough as the Grinch in Citi Wang Theatre’s production last year.
“The wheels move excruciatingly slowly on Broadway. I’m currently in talks about a project that will probably start after the end of the year,” says Stefán, who does not want to reveal what the project is in addition to being in talks with theaters in Hollywood. “It’s a bit more complicated process out there. But I’m not worried. We have the green card in our hands and it is a huge relief.”
Stefán and his wife Steinunn Ólína Þorsteinsdóttir have worked hard to get the work permit and do not expect to come home for the next few years. “Our kids have adapted to the American school system and you don’t pull them out of it one, two and three,” says Stefán, adding that he looks forward to living in the United States for the next 20 years – as it’s good to be there. The family lives in San Diego and Stefán says they plan to live there for at least another year. “We’re a block from Mexico and you can go skiing there and be on the beach two hours later.”
Despite the news that Stefán Karl has left LazyTown, he has been on a constant journey around the world for the last few weeks and participated in LazyTown Live shows as Robbie Rotten. When asked, Stefán says that he has not stopped playing Robbie Rotten. “You can never stop. It’s like divorcing your children,” he says with a laugh. “LazyTown is not producing, so it is actually self-sustaining. I myself don’t know if I would take part in another TV series if it were to be made, but I am open to discussions about everything. Robbie Rotten is a big part of my life and I know that if LazyTown continues to make more, I will be involved in it one way or another.”
The role of Robbie Rotten made Stefán a star, and when asked if he gets any attention for the thug, he is quick to answer: “I went to Mexico the other day and just needed a bodyguard,” he says with a laugh, where LazyTown is very popular in the Central and Southern America. “It happens that someone recognizes me, although I have an awful lot of make-up on my face as Robbie Rotten, and thank God I can go to the store unshaven in my pajamas without anyone noticing me.”
As mentioned in DV’s weekend magazine, Stefán will stay in the country for the whole summer without his family. “It’s hard to be away from them. I travel a lot for work and when I’m at home I just want to stay at home and prefer not to go out to the store,” says Stefán and adds: “My little son, Þorsteinn, has started to walk. I just missed it and find it difficult. Got to see it on …video…, thanks to Skype. It can be complicated, but you try to make the best of it.”
