Hakim Harder

Actor, Copenhagen

Welcome to my little place on the web

I was born and grew up in Copenhagen, Denmark. My mother is Danish and my father was a Moroccan Berber. As they divorced when I was only two years old, my mother brought me up mostly as a single parent. She did re-marry, however, so my upbringing was not entirely without a father figure.

From my early childhood I have had a passion for performing; both singing and acting. As a nine-year old boy I joined the Copenhagen Boys Choir (The Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir), where I was classically trained and where I performed for 12 years. After my time in the choir I continued performing as a singer in various band constellations, which somehow eventually led me to acting.

Today, I am a trained actor with a passion for breathing life into written characters; be they dramatic or comic. Most of my work has been with the underground film scene in Copenhagen. I have been lucky to receive my training from the following prominent acting coaches:

  • Ivana Chubbuck (US)
  • Robert Castle (US)
  • Sam Rumbelow (UK)
  • Lotte Arnsbjerg (DK)

    To keep myself reasonably fit, both mentally and physically, I train Wing Chun Kung Fu under the instruction of Grandmaster Samuel Kwok (UK)

    "In my opinion Hakim’s great strength as an actor is that he plays his parts internally, instead of externally. This creates very believable characters and it gives performances worth watching."
