Talking about his acting career, he made his debut in 2013 in Studentfesten. After that, he appeared in multiple gigs like The Hidden Child and Transference before booking a role as Erlendur in the TV show Vikings, which led him to the limelight.
Following his rise to fame, Endre, who stands at a height of 5 feet 10 inches, booked roles in many movies and TV shows, including Eddie the Eagle, Fortitude, The Pagan King: The Battle of Death, The Spy, A Class Apart, Moominvalley, and Fartblinda.
Recently, Endre has played the role of Daniel Ek, Spotify’s founder, in the Netflix series, The Playlist, based on the best-selling book Spotify Untold. The show was directed by Per-Olav Sørensen, and it premiered on October 13, 2022.
In his recent interview with Café, the actor talked more about how he got the role. He said, “They asked if I could make a self-tape, my own test filming at home, and send it in. And then they first wanted me as Andreas Ehn (Spotify’s programmer).”
“I was in Gothenburg at the time on another recording, so I sat and researched the music industry on my lunch breaks. Made this self-tape. But then I would have very kindly asked them. ‘I don’t know if I’m right for Andreas Ehn, I think maybe I’m more Daniel,'” he added.
And when the casting directors asked Endre to send another self-tape for the role of Daniel, he didn’t. “I couldn’t do it, so I sent in the Andreas Ehn test footage, though as Daniel,” he told the outlet. And after some meetings and conversations, he eventually booked the role of Daniel.
