Tommy Kenter has an incredible repertoire, and does all sorts of characters, from his goofy character Keld to his hard-of-hearing and very eccentric Fru Kristoff. Although preferably a comedy actor, he showed that he could do serious bits as well with Lad isbjørnene danse (1990). With Per Pallesen as Mathiesen and Tommy's corresponding character Fru Kristoff, he achieved legendary comedy status in the 80s. Just as people thought he was coming to the end of his career, he re-emerged as the fantastic Anton in Fukssvansen (2001), the nosy and very selfish neighbour.
