REYKJAVIK, ICELAND – Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir represented Iceland back in 2006 when Athens hosted the Eurovision Song Contest. Back then, acting as Silvia Night, cause a number of reactions mostly by the Greeks. It was when she, acting as Silvia Night called the Greek audience “f****ing Greeks” and then when she called the media and press representatives as “assh****es”.
Through an interview at VICE.com, Ágústa Eva cleared things with the Greeks. First of all during the interview she was surprised the Greek audience took the statements seriously. After all Silvia Night was an act and not the real expression of the artist. An act which was based on an unlimited, uncontrolled personality called Silvia Night.
ÁGÚSTA EVA SAYS
About time to come clean with the Greek nation. According to the reporter from VICE MAGAZINE in Greece, the Greek nation is still thinking that the character Silva Night is real!! This interview should set the record straight. “Thank you for loving meee!” -Silvia shouts from the unknown.
DID YOU KNOW?
Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir, temporary singer of the band Ske and a young and unknown actress, and Gaukur Úlfarsson, decided to invent a character to adopt as an alter ego (cf. Ali G) that brought out all the worst elements of human behaviour in modern society. Silvía’s personality is highly affected by narcissism and she sees herself as the most famous and talented person walking on the planet Earth. Her full Icelandic name is Silvía Nótt Sæmundsdóttir (see Icelandic naming conventions) and she was born on 20 February 1973. Silvía originally means “wood nymph” and Nótt simply means “night”. The name was probably not meant to have any learned connotations, but is rather typical for Icelandic pop culture Christening fashions of the new century. Silvía’s boyfriend is the Argentinian alpha male Romario Hugo Estevez, performed by Icelandic actor Björn Thors. Silvía’s favorite foods are sushi and feta cheese and she aims for a career as a model, singer and a movie star. Her use of language includes heavy slang and she frequently uses English words and phrases while speaking in Icelandic, not always correctly. (In her public appearances at the Eurovision Song Contest, she spoke entirely in English, exaggerating her Icelandic accent even more than usual.) Silvía is also equally hated and loved throughout Iceland.
