Early Life

Rolf Peter Ingvar Storm was born in Kumla in Örebro County, Sweden, but soon after, his family moved to Arbrå, Gävleborg County. He changed his surname when he discovered that he shared it with a senior student at an acting academy. Like "storm" (a word which has the same meaning in Swedish and English), "stormare" is a Swedish word, meaning "stormer". Before settling on "Stormare", he briefly contemplated changing his name to "Retep Mrots", which is simply "Peter Storm" backwards.

Favorite Quotes from Peter Stormare

“If you do a character, always make the character with a big question mark. Even if the character is very enigmatic and all over the place, making him always with a question mark, because if you turn a question mark upside down as they do in South America in Spanish, then it becomes a hook.” – Peter Stormare
“If what I think is God should come down today and says “I’m God or the thing you call God, and you’re never going to do any more movies. You’re never going to do television. You’re never going to do theater again in your life,” I would just say “What are we doing? What is the next step?” That’s how I try to approach it.” – Peter Stormare
“When you introduce a character and show him for the first time, don’t show him fully lit. Don’t show him one hundred percent to the audience. Show maybe fifty percent or sixty percent so the audience can fill in the dark spots.” – Peter Stormare
“I’ve been very lucky and fortunate to meet people that are very inspirational in their spirits, too, and not just as filmmakers – in their personal life. I mean, Steven Spielberg is very inspirational just to sit down and talk for an hour, like Ingmar Bergman was. They know so much about life and, you know, movie-making, so it’s just wonderful to be around those people.” – Peter Stormare
“If I had the money, I would love to open up a movie theater that just played images and colors and beautiful music. For me, there’s nothing like listening to a beautiful opera sometimes – on a record or seeing it live – just to be sleepy and let those beautiful voices take me somewhere I’ve never been before.” – Peter Stormare
