Caspar’s acting experience is limited to the stage; he has performed in numerous musicals, including “Rocky Horror Show,” “Les Misérables,” “Carmen Negra,” and “Kameliadamen,” but never in a film. A lot of people fell in love with his voice, so in 1999 he started recording Danish audiobooks of Agatha Christie’s works, which became a huge hit.
A few years later, in 2002, Caspar became well-known and beloved among children everywhere as the Danish voice of the noble Kung-fu fighter Goku in the animated Manga series “Dragon Ball Z“. Two years later, in the Shrek sequel by DreamWorks, he lent his Danish voice to the role of the annoying Prince Charming (2004).

Phillipson’s performance as John F. Kennedy in the film Jackie (2016) is mostly responsible for his widespread recognition in the English-speaking world. Even though Phillipson is only in Jackie for a total of ten minutes, many people have commented on how strikingly like he looks to John F. Kennedy.
After that, Phillipson went on to play Kennedy in a short film as well as in live renditions of Kennedy’s speeches.
How Was His Performance in Jackie?
Phillipson only had a ten minute cameo in Jackie, but the media immediately noticed his amazing likeness to Kennedy. After set images from the film were released, the Washington Post made the following observation:
“That thatch of hair, those white teeth, the smile lines around the eyes — all very Kennedyesque. He might not be familiar to U.S. audiences, but he’s far more visually similar to the former prez than other actors who’ve played JFK in recent memory, including James Marsden in The Butler (2013), Greg Kinnear in the 2011 TV miniseries The Kennedys and Rob Lowe in 2013’s Killing Kennedy.”
Phillipson claimed that he had only been mistaken for Kennedy when he was in the United States, and that was why he hadn’t auditioned for the role until then.
“I did a workshop years ago with Frank Corsaro, this iconic American teacher — he was the leader of Actors Studio — and suddenly, in the middle of a different scene, he said in this gruff voice, ‘You have to do Kennedy one day. You just have to.” Phillipson took Corsaro’s counsel and studied the speeches of John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert F. Kennedy, whom he admired and saw as a role model.
After Jackie was released, Phillipson gave live performances as Kennedy with Danish biographer Anders Agner Pedersen, who would give background on Kennedy’s speeches before Phillipson gave them.
