Had a wonderful review written about me in “Max It!” magazine in England for my role of Morten in the quirky British thriller “Do Something, Jake!” Here is an excerpt from the article:
“An international boost to the project came with award-winning New York actor, Ed Bergtold, who gives a brilliantly intense performance. “Ed was great to work with and he brought a touch of ‘Soprano’ glamour to our quirky English production. Some crew members compared him to De Niro or Pacino, but for me, when he spoke, all I could hear was Michael Douglas … not a bad combination!”
