Creator: Mads Mikkelsen
Mads Mikkelsen (born 1965) is an actor from Denmark, and quite popular back in his home country, having been voted Denmark's sexiest man multiple times. Before he became an actor, he was a trained gymnast and later a professional dancer, having done the latter for almost a decade. He turned to acting when he wanted to pursue the more dramatic side of expression.

He made his film debut in Nicolas Winding Refn's directorial debut in the Danish crime drama Pusher, and later reprised his role in Pusher 2. His role as Cowboy Cop DI Alan Fischer on the Danish Cop Show, Rejseholdet, significantly raised his star in Denmark. His first Hollywood debut was as Tristan in the 2004 movie King Arthur, but internationally he's probably more well known for his role as the villain Le Chiffre from the 2006 adaptation of Casino Royale, and his portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in the TV Show of the same name. Outside of Denmark, or rather in Hollywood, he also more well known for playing villainous or very anti-heroic characters, but in most of his other films he's played a variety of other characters, from cheerful, low-level gangsters to harrassed, mournful everymen.
