Stefan Karl Stefansson, 42, an actor most famous for portraying Robbie Rotten in LazyTown, told RUV, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service, that he is free from liver cancer for now after undergoing two surgeries (as translated by batteries-included on Reddit).

The damn disease is gone. Until it comes back, whenever that will be, which will hopefully be never. Life is now. It’s almost a miracle that I’m still here.

Stefansson was first diagnosed with cancer in September 2016. He describes having one tumor removed after the other, with a huge tumor discovered during one of the surgeries. Part of his liver was removed but it will regenerate. He said that he is one in 100,000 to get his type of cancer.

“Of course I get it,” he said. “I’m one of a kind.”

Having cancer made Stefansson rethink his life and priorities, with him vowing to not take part in discussions on politics and negative topics which has previously taken up a lot of his time. He is concerned about political discourse on the internet.

We are hanging around on Facebook and reading each others’ feeds. We are ‘stalkers,’ we are ‘stalking’ each others’ lives all day long and criticizing them. It’s kind of like standing by your window: ‘Look how he’s painting his house, he’s painting it green, I’d never paint my house green.’

Many people have asked him if death worries him, but he said that death is an incredibly insignificant thing when life is so interesting and magnificent.

Let’s not cry and think ‘Woulda, coulda, shoulda,’ let’s stop looking in the rear-view mirror and look ahead onto the road because that heals all wounds. When I woke up after my first surgery, which is one of the most serious and dangerous surgeries they do on the human body, the nurses looked at me and said ‘Now you will have to go and heal yourself Stefán.’ That is one of the most profound things I have learned in my life.

However, he does get depressed over the idea that he might miss getting to hold his grandchild’s hand or walking his daughters down the altar when they get married. But he has hope for the future of his children.

He also tries to bike 20 kilometers every day.

Stefansson is currently writing a stand-up comedy routine about cancer with stand-up comedian Ari Eldjarn. Stefansson said that it’s important to be able to laugh at the illness, saying that while laughter doesn’t necessarily prolong your life but can make it easier. He recalls having to learn how to fart again after the surgery and doctors and nurses constantly check in on the last time he farted and how. He and Eldjarn are going to start testing in October and then premiere it soon after the beginning of next year.

Stefansson is well-known for portraying Robbie Rotten on the popular children’s TV show LazyTown, with his performance of the song We Are Number One becoming one of the biggest memes of 2016. His award-winning acting career expands well beyond that, with the actor playing the part of the Grinch in Running Subway Productions’ production of How the Grinch Stole Christmas the Musical and the singing sheep farmer in the popular Icelandic feature comedy Stella Runs for Office.

Stefansson is the founder and president of Regnbogaborn (Rainbow-Children), which, according to his LinkedIn page, “has become the leading Icelandic anti-bullying organization for children, teens, educators and parents.” According to his Facebook page, Stefansson is also the CEO of Spretta, a company that grows micro greens for restaurants.
