Says Stig Rossen about Hans Christian Andersen: "Like most Danes I feel that Hans Christian Andersen forms an integral part of my conscience. And as an actor of course I have a very specific opinion about our great Danish icon. Only very few persons has had the ability like Hans Christian Andersen to move and inspire people on every side of the geographical, cultural and religious borders and age limits. It is with great humility, pride and awe that I join the international range of Hans Christian Andersen Ambassadors, who in the coming years will ensure that our Great Danish Poet will be secured as one of the most important storytellers ever."
