He trained at the Academy Theatre Project in Oslo, Norway and the Drama Studio London before making his screen debut in the crime drama "Brun bitter" (1988). In the mid-to-late '90s, Temte honed his craft on the Norwegian stage, earning critical praise for lead and supporting roles in productions of "Hamlet," "Torch Song Trilogy" and "Richard III."
