He also appeared in the 1966 spy film Strike First Freddy as the villain, and as the elf Gammel Nok in The Julekalender.


In addition to having appeared in a large number of Danish films, Bundgaard starred in a number of operettas in the late 1940s until the 1950s, and worked at the Royal Danish Theatre as a singer between 1958 and 1973; however, he focused mostly on acting later on in his career, partly due to stage fright.[1]

He died during the filming of Olsen-bandens sidste stik and Tommy Kenter was used as stand-in for some of the scenes while Kurt Ravn did his voice.[2]
