Sea Captain and Movie Actor might sound as an odd combination. However - this rather unique synthesis has proven to add value to the served Ship Owner or Movie Production in a number of ways.
Whilst starting out at sea already as a teenager, Ulf Strom got some years later a Sea Captain degree (Nautical Science) from the Stockholm Maritime Academy. The career in the Merchant Marine started thereafter out as deck officer on the trade between Latin America and Europe. For the last couple of years, he has mainly taken on yacht assignments in Indonesia (S/Y Veritas) and in the Arctics (M/Y Togo).
Being a sailor means also periods of free time in between the onboard assignments. A couple of years ago he got the coincidental opportunity to jump in as a suddenly needed Extra to support his wife Eva Louise in a role for a commercial film production. This led quickly to a number of other movie roles incl. two as a captain (partly just because he had his own uniform).
Apart from being responsible for a ship and its passengers, the captain has also a relation building duty in representing the owners. Ulf now being a captain on a Swedish passenger vessel, started upon request to also entertain the passengers as an appreciated musician and entertainer. A combination which proved to be not only unique, but very successful.
He has been travelling all over the World incl climbing the Longyear Glacier, Spitzbergen, canoeing up the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea, encountering Polar bears in the Arctic, living with Piaori Indians in the Amazonas and deep diving at the German Navy War Grave at Scapa Flow, Orkney Islands, etc.
Scuba Diving (PADI Adv. O/W) incl deep- and nightdiving
He also like to barbeque amongst friends ("If we are not
supposed to eat animals, why are they made out of meat?" (Homer Simpson).
He can also hit a golf ball (..but is not as sure of where it
