film profile] (2002) by Danish director Lone Scherfig and got a great reception at its recent Danish opening and The Bum’s Rush by Steward Svaasand (2003) and Dead on Time by James Larkin (1999). Sives has also featured in several British popular Tv series like The Bill and Holby City.
"I played in the movie that was shown here last night in the gala screening, Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself [+see also:
film profile] and I played the part of Wilbur. He tries to kill himself and that was very challenging in itself.
I’ve just finished my last film on Christmas Eve, it is a Norwegian-Scottish co-production called The Bum's Rush which we shot in five to six weeks just before Christmas. It will be out may be at the end of the year or early next year.
I am a huge fun of Señor Almodóvar, and I think I would like to work with him. He is probably my favourite European director just now. So, please Señor Almodóvar give me a call - “llamame!”. 'Scottish saying/speech' - what was that? It just means: 'Live long'".
