The Profile.

Måns Herngren made his name as an actor, director and screenwriter. He is the eldest of the famous Herngren siblings and when he is not working on films he is a commercial director for TV. His big breakthrough came with the comedy TV-series S*M*A*S*H (1990), written and directed by Måns Herngren himself and Hannes Holm. From this television success they became a great script duo and directed the feature films En på miljonen (1995), Adam & Eva (1997), Shit happens (2000) and The reunion (2002). In 2006 Måns directed his first feature film with his brother, the box office hit Every Other Week. Since then they have created a couple of award-winning comedy series and films, like Solsidan, Bonusfamiljen, The 101-Year-Old Man Who Skipped Out on the Bill and Disappeared and The Restaurant (Vår tid är nu).

Over the years, Måns has been awarded Kristallen, The Golden Egg Award and Roy Awards for his work. His feature films have become Swedish classics and his twisted sense of humour with scripts is his strength. To add to his many talents, Måns is a true foodie and mixologist too. We have seen him mixing up drinks in Pluras Kök and TV3´s uppesittarkväll. He enjoys frequenting top restaurants and never says no to a great cocktail. Måns is a true insider in the bar scene and many of his friends are award winning mixologists and top chefs.
