Fifteen years ago David Larsen effectively left the Portland area, attending Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, living briefly in Los Angeles and then settling down and establishing his acting career in New York City with his wife, Amanda Kloots Larsen.

This week, Larsen returns triumphantly, starring in the ultra-successful Broadway musical “The Book of Mormon,” playing Elder Price, an alpha-male do-gooder who thinks highly of himself.

To the contrary, as much as he has been through in 15 years, Larsen has been humbled by such notoriety.

“I feel fortunate to continue to work in this business,” says Larsen, 34, a Hillsboro High School graduate. “I’m glad that it happened. I’ve been working toward it for a long time.”

In celebration of Kyle Selig’s week as Elder Price, he and Cody Jamison Strand re-created famous movie posters.
